CELEBRATE THE TENTH ANNUAL NIGHT TO HONOR ISRAEL PDF Print E-mail
News Releases - Local Events
Written by Tom McGovern   
Tuesday, 01 October 2013 13:44
Quad Cities event has raised over $400,000 for humanitarian needs during nine-year history

BETTENDORF, IA – Organizers of the Quad Cities Night to Honor Israel today announced plans for their 10th annual celebration. Set for Thursday, Oct. 17th at 7:00 PM (with a pre-show musical performance at 6:30 PM), Calvary Church of the Quad Cities (4700 53rd St., Moline, IL) hosts the evening of singing, dancing and praise to honor the importance of Israel. There is no charge, but a free will offering will be made.

This year’s keynote speaker is Diana Hagee. She is the wife of Pastor John Hagee, founder and senior pastor of Cornerstone Church in San Antonio Texas. The author of a best-selling book, “The King's Daughter,” Mrs. Hagee is the founder of the King’s Daughter, Becoming a Woman of God National Conferences. She was presented the prestigious Lion of Judah award by the Jewish Federation of Greater Houston for the long-standing work she and Pastor Hagee do within Israel and currently works with Christians United for Israel, which was founded by her husband in 2006.

A free will offering this year will be used to bomb-proof the pre-school at Kibbutz Nahal Oz (http://eng.negev-net.org.il/htmls/article.aspx?C2004=12747) against missile attacks from Gaza only 700 yards away. In addition, funding will be directed toward medical equipment and supplies for Magen David Adom in Israel (www.mdais.com) ambulances in Sderot located one mile from Gaza.

During the previous nine years of the Quad Cities Night to Honor Israel, the event has generated $421,000 for Jewish immigration, underground hospital emergency rooms and computer labs for immigrant children to learn Hebrew and basic life skills in addition to other humanitarian causes.

Other speakers will include Roey Gilad, Consul General of Israel to the Midwest, and two Augustana College students who will share their experiences from the Christians United for Israel meeting this past summer in Washington, D.C. The special pre-show at 6:30 PM will feature the Java Jews and their “highly-caffeinated” klezmer music from Des Moines, IA.

“In this 10th year of our remarkable journey we are pleased to bring together Jews, Christians, Pastors, and Rabbis for one common purpose which is to speak up and stand up for Israel,” said Tom McGovern, Chairman of the event and Iowa State Director of Christians United for Israel. “We hope the Quad Cities region will join us again for an unforgettable night of praising, singing, dancing, celebrating and giving.”

Quad Cities Night to Honor Israel (www.qcnthi.com) is a non-conversionary tribute to the nation of Israel and the Jewish people of the world. Its purpose is to promote respect and understanding between Christians and Jews to emphasize that the beliefs held in common are far greater than the differences that separate.

It is organized by the Quad Cities Association of Evangelicals (www.qcae.org) and by the Iowa State Chapter of the Christians United for Israel (www.cufi.org).

Christian Care Hosts 4th Annual WALK THE WALK To raise awareness for domestic violence PDF Print E-mail
News Releases - Local Events
Written by Lindsey Lobur   
Tuesday, 01 October 2013 13:03

Rock Island, IL–Domestic violence is a pervasive problem in our community. It is a silent predator that affects one out of every four women and, typically, impacts several generations of family members. In recognition of national domestic violence awareness this month, Christian Care is hosting Walk the Walk this Saturday, October 5, located at Prospect Park in Moline. The walk is from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., with registration starting at 9:00 a.m. Take a stand against domestic violence: join Christian Care and Diamonds on the Avenue by participating in this year’s Walk the Walk.

Before beginning the walk, participants will hear the compelling story of how a grandmother lost her granddaughter to domestic violence. Afterwards, they will enjoy a performance by Healing Waters Empowerment Project. Participants will receive a race bag, walk pedometer, and several other goodies. The event also features a silent auction and activities for children. Food and beverages will be available for purchase. All proceeds will go directly back into the programs and services that Christian Care offers to so many in the Quad Cities community. Please do not forget that every dollar donated makes a difference, registration is only $10.00. 98% of the women who complete Christian Care’s holistic programs go on to live independent lives, free of their abusers.

Christian Care's services are available in the Quad Cities to a growing number of homeless men and abused women and children 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Through their two facilities—a domestic violence shelter for abused women and children and a rescue mission for homeless men—they provide safe shelter, nutritious meals, clothing, counseling, referrals and guidance to anyone in need. They serve homeless individuals, victims of domestic violence, veterans, men and women coming out of prison, and the mentally ill. Their vision is to transform the lives of those they serve by providing their residents with an opportunity to start a new, more productive life. For more information contact Lindsey at 309-786-5734 or visit Christian Care’s website at www.christiancareqc.org
