Friends of Sinners, a Christ-centered residential substance recovery program, is growing and needs our help. If you're a church, business, or non-profit, or you want to support their life-saving mission, there's an open house planned for tomorrow.

Running a successful non-profit is rewarding, but it isn't easy. Raising money is one of the biggest challenges. This is the case for Friends of Sinners. There are so many people hurting and in need of recovery in and around Owensboro. They take in clients from all over the tri-state and help them maintain a life of sobriety through the hope of Jesus Christ. This life-transforming work takes money. This is why they need our help!

On Tuesday, July 11th, 2023, Friends of Sinners will show off their new facility. Their Capital Campaign Kickoff event presentation will be at noon or 5 PM. It will be a 20-minute presentation, followed by the tour.

FOS Executive Director, Joe Welsh, shared the news today.

First I want to invite you to attend our capital campaign kickoff and tour of our new facility on July 11th @12pm or 5 pm: two options but the same presentation.

I've been in non-profit work for over a decade mainly as an executive director and this is easily the biggest meeting of my career. The future and history of FOS will be greatly impacted by what is accomplished or not during and by this meeting...I will cast the vision and tell the story that god gave me of Moses and the 70 elders and how the life of Moses relates to my professional career and our campaign.

I'm pretty much on my knees begging anyone and everyone who has a heart for FOS, been directly or indirectly impacted by FOS to show up and hear what I have to say. If there were ever a meeting/time I needed my people and the community as a whole to show up for me and those we serve it would be this/now.

I will have about a 20-minute presentation, then take questions and answers and give tours to anyone who wants to see the new facility.
