We spend too much time being “driven” rather than “drawn in.” We focus on what we “should” do rather than what we feel excited and compelled to do in our lives, in this world. During this series, we will connect with our inherent creativity and nurture this foundational aspect of being human, giving us renewed energy for passionate work, delightful play, and creative problem solving to make this world a better place for all.

Pledge To Create A Facebook Birthday Fundraiser Benefiting Pikes Peak MCC in 2022
Julia Wedemeyer is looking for 24 people or thereabouts who want to do a Facebook Birthday Fundraiser for our church on your birthday month. She has set up a poll on the Pikes Peak MCC Group Facebook page and if you would like to do this please vote for the month that your birthday is in (her goal is at least two people per month or more) as well post in the comment section the date of your birthday. She will compile a list and get back in touch with folks who may have questions on how to set this up. She is also willing to help people who do not have a Facebook account to set one up specifically for this purpose.
This past April, she set a Birthday Fundraiser on Facebook with a $200.00 goal, and she had to keep increasing her goal amount because so many family and friends were impressed by the mission and ministry of our church they were giving abundantly to her fundraiser. She was able to raise $1,521.00 for our church’s general fund. She thinks if we were able to have at least two people each month this would provide a financial stream to our church that is so greatly needed and appreciated right now and in the new year.
Thanks for your careful consideration of this new way to provide a financial stream of abundance for our church. If you have any questions, have trouble accessing our Facebook page to complete the process of signing up, and/or need assistance in setting up a Facebook account, please call or text Julia at (719) 205-0359. (If you text her, please include your name in the text.)
To Be Securing Items for Our Next PPMCC Fundraiser
For all of you who have assisted our PPMCC fundraisers in the past like our Bring It Bash or Online Auction, we need your assistance once again. It is time to start thinking of items, services, etc., that you may want to create, make a personal gift certificate, or have an existing business provide a donated item or gift certificate/card for our next fundraising efforts.
Richard Owens and I took a class at a sign making studio in Colorado Springs, and we made two inspirational wall signs that we are going to donate for the next PPMCC fundraiser (see picture below — us at the studio with our finished projects). We want to encourage others in our congregation to plan projects individually as well as get a friend, family member or a group of congregation members to make items as well. It always helps to have others for inspiration and to know what people are interested in bidding on for a gift for themselves or someone else in their life.
I would like to get a list together of larger ticket items that you know you or your family may be spending money on this year to see if we would be able to have some of those items donated. This approach to securing donations will allow you to be able to get the item/s that you need as well as abundantly support the church in its ministry. Popular items donated in the past have been:
vacation stays at resorts
repair person services
homemade meals with our Pastor
a set of tires
food and restaurant gift cards
Dungeons and Dragons lessons from a Dungeon Master
haircuts and coloring packages
haircare product gift baskets
…just to name a few. Please be creative in developing your lists as possible; we may not be aware of something you are interested in.
You can text me your list of items at (719) 205-0359. Please include your name and any helpful information in the text such as item name, item number, color, place/s it is available, date you want to have it in your possession, and anything else that might be helpful. Once I compile a list of all suggested items, it will allow people working to secure donations for our fundraising efforts to know that the items we request a donation for we will have people interested in bidding on.
Thank you so much for all your help with this endeavor! We know it will make for a wonderfully successful fundraiser for PPMCC in this New Year.
My best to you always, Julia Wedemeyer, M.A. Pikes Peak Metropolitan Community Church Vice-Moderator & Congregational Care Team Ministry Lead
