Happening Soon!

First Image Gala 2017

October 28th // Melody Ballroom
5:15 pm Reception
6:30 pm Dinner

Events are one the key ways we bring people into the mission of First Image. It’s a time that’s set aside to celebrate what God is doing, enjoy gathering with other like-minded people and invite giving to First Image. We work to equip our supporters with what they need to confidently invite people to events, ask for gifts to First Image and enable others to connect more deeply with how God is at work in this ministry.

We have three core events every year. You can find more info about each of those below. If you are looking for opportunities to raise funds outside of our normal events, check out the fundraise section of our website.

First Image Gala
October 28, 2017

Every year we set aside a night to get dressed up and join together in celebration of what God has been doing through First Image. It’s a time to be renewed in our compassion and conviction with other like-minded individuals.

This is also a wonderful opportunity to bring others to hear about the mission of First Image and why we believe it is so vital.

Sanctity of Human Life
January, 2018

In January each year thousands of churches across the nation set aside a Sunday to highlight the sanctity of every human life created in God’s image. It’s an opportunity to remember not-yet-born children, those with disabilities, those that are dehumanized through human trafficking and many others.

At First Image, we want to help you and your church make a meaningful difference in the lives of those that are impacted by sexual brokenness and abortion. That’s why we do a baby bottle campaign every year.

Some people participate in January and some at other points of the year. Some participate as individuals and some through their church.

This year we are excited to be providing both a physical baby bottle to those that want them and an online fundraising tool in order to participate in this event.

Steps for Life
May 19, 2018

For over 25 years, we have been walking in support of the children, women, men, and families that need our support. In 2018, we’re going to be running! Get ready for our first ever Walk/Run next May. Dust off those running shoes and sign up to participate in our 5k run, 2mi walk, or 100-meter stroller dash.

Our passionate partners from all over the region also use their creativity and initiative to raise support among their sphere of influence. Learn more about the Steps for Life 2018 or see how you or your company can get involved to be a participant or corporate sponsor for this great event. Contact kelsey@first-image.org

Many of our most passionate partners are always asking what more they can do. This year we have unveiled an initiative aimed at providing diverse and simple opportunities to bring new people into the mission of First Image.

We call them micro-events, and they are small-scale opportunities to create a transformative experience for those that participate.

These small events are driven by our partners and their passions. Some will gather with other Parents from a local high school to hear more about The Reality Project presentations that their children are hearing. Some will take a “bus tour” on Insight, traveling around the city and learning about the mission of First Image. Some will host a day of golf with their business connections or friends and invite us to come share about First Image.

There are a variety of ways that a micro-event could happen. Our goal is simply to create a meaningful experience, to invite a deeper partnership and that 50% of participants would be new to the ministry.
