Wasilla Bible Church

Who can attend?
Anyone interested in learning more about the mission and vision of HeartReach Center and potentially funding the ministry.
*Adults only, please as seating is limited.*
Do I pay for my dinner in advance?
Admission to the banquet is FREE to all guests thanks to underwriting from local businesses and private community supporters. However, since the primary purpose for this dinner remains fund-raising, we do ask that attendees come prepared not only to learn about HeartReach Center but also to invest financially in the ministry.
What can I expect at the banquet?
The meal itself consists of a catered, plated meal with water and/or tea, dessert and coffee. This year's dinner will be brisket from Big J's BBQ, served with a roll, side salad, green beans and garlic cilantro smashed fingerling potatoes along with desserts from Ruthie's Cakewalk. *Aside from a roll, ranch dressing and cakes, the entire meal will be gluten and dairy-free.*
Dinner will be followed by ministry updates, a word from HeartReach Center's executive director, Joyce Moropoulos, an engaging talk by our featured speakers, Derrick and Julie Tennant, and the opportunity for attendees to make a financial contribution to support the life-affirming work of HeartReach Center.
*Reserved seating only. Attendees must register in advance to attend or be registered by a table host.*
There are THREE ways you can be part of making
the HeartReach Center banquet a HUGE success.
Host a Table
RESERVE A TABLE, AND COMMIT TO FILL IT WITH YOUR FRIENDS.
At HeartReach Center banquets, we don't ask people to "sponsor" tables. Instead, we ask our current friends to consider hosting a table so that they can prayerfully invite their friends to the banquet. In this way, our "old friends" have a platform by which to introduce "new friends" to the ministry.
Table hosts don't pay anything to attend the banquet or to cover the dinner cost of those they invite. Instead, they simply commit to intentionally fill their table with friends who they believe would be likely to partner with HeartReach financially. We trust our table hosts to inivte and the Holy Spirit to nudge those who would be aligned with the mission and vision of HeartReach Center to attend the banquet.
If you would like to reserve a table of eight, fill that table with friends and host the table on banquet night, then simply check the "Yes, I would like to be a Table Host" box when you register (link below), and you'll receive all the information you need immediately via email.
If you're not ready to host a table but want to learn more about the mission and vision of HeartReach center by attending our banquet, then we would love to have you join us.
Please note: seating assignments are filled primarily through table host invites. Since table hosts take responsibility for filling their table of eight, this makes their tables "reserved."
Side note: If you are registering today in response to the invitation of a table host, please make sure to select his/her name when you register below so that you will be correctly assigned to that host's table.
Open seats will be available. If you are registering without any formal invitation or connection to a host, simply note that on your registration form. You will also be given the option to write in the name of others you do know and with whom you'd prefer to be seated. Once table hosts have had a chance to fill their tables, we will begin filling open seats and will do our best to seat individual registrants as requested.
At HeartReach Center, we appreciate our community partners and realize that we could not do what we do if friends in the community didn't give so generously. This is exceptionally true for our banquet. It's our goal every year to have the entire cost of the banquet completely covered in advance so that all money that comes in at the banquet can go directly into ministry.
