Thank you for your prayer and support during a year like no other. In spite of COVID-19, First Priority has been able to continue to meet the needs of elementary, middle and high school students. It’s been a difficult and costly process to adapt to this new reality. But thanks to supporters like you, it’s been so worth it because the need is greater than ever.
Students are hurting, lonely and they long for a place where they can connect and belong. First Priority provides a place where students know they can find friends and hope. As mentioned in the last email, a local student recently told his First Priority campus coach, “Last week you reminded me that I’m not alone and I needed to hear that.”
Together, we can reach more students with the hope of Christ in 2021. This is an especially important time to give to First Priority… Some friends of First Priority have gotten together to challenge the ministry to raise $100,000 through Thursday, December 31, and they will match every penny donated! We hope you will consider giving a gift for our year-end Victory Matching Challenge.
Our vision is to establish an organized Christian presence on Every Last One of the 272 campuses in Greater Birmingham. When we do this, we can have the opportunity to meet the needs of Every Last One of the over 150,000 students in these schools. These are our kids and grandkids. They need our support now more than ever!
If you have already given a gift to our year-end campaign, thank you for your generosity! If you haven’t sent a gift yet, there is still time for you personally to make a difference in the lives of teenagers all across the Birmingham area. Your gift will be matched through Thursday, December 31, 2020, at 11:59 p.m. We hope to hear from you soon!
