You are invited to
A Presbytery Wide Night at the Ballpark – Friday, September 17
Fayetteville Woodpeckers vs The Carolina Mudcats
The West Community is inviting the whole presbytery to an evening of baseball and fellowship, Friday, Sept 17.
We have secured a block of tickets at a discounted rate.
Churches are encouraged to form groups and carpool together to the game. The cost of each pastor’s/CRE’s admission ticket is covered.
Everyone else’s ticket is $10.
An optional $10 meal voucher is available, if pre-ordered. The meal voucher is a hot dog, drink and chips.
If a church sees that their group will be more than 10 persons, Laura Lupton needs to be notified as soon as possible so that our number of tickets on hold can be adjusted as needed.
Currently, we are holding 200 tickets, but in 2019 we had over 400 persons respond!
Please NOTIFY me if your church is forming a group so that I have an idea about how many tickets are needed.
Here is the poster/Flyer and sign-up sheet for you to use.
GROUP LEADERS must let Laura Lupton know their final count by email no later than September 6 as payment will be due for the tickets we are holding.
She just needs
- the total number of tickets,
- the number of pastors in your count and
- the number of meal vouchers.
- The group leader’s contact information
Group leaders will need to bring complete payment with them to the ballpark to receive their tickets. ONE CHECK from the church is preferred, payable to the Presbytery.
The church must pay for any last-minute cancellations as the tickets are non-refundable. If there is a weather event, the church will still be responsible to pay for the tickets.
Plan to arrive at the gate of the ballpark before 6:15PM – We suggest that you just aim to be there before 6:00 to give your group plenty of time to get in the ballpark and order food and drink, etc.
Give yourself time to park and walk to the entrance and get your tickets from Laura (this could be a 10 minute walk after you find parking).
If you arrive after 6:15 your group tickets may be held at the will call window or you might have to call Laura to find out where she is to get your tickets from her!
The linked flyer & sign-up sheet have the details. The ballpark does not have any covid restrictions at this time.
A question we had in 2019 was “Is this open only to church members or may they bring friends?”
Our reply is that this event is a great evangelism opportunity – your members may invite whoever they want to come with them. Then their guest(s) can get to know some church folks in a relax environment and hopefully feel more at ease to visit church in the future. Your group is your group – it can be any you choose to welcome and invite.
Please let us know if you have any questions or suggestions! Let’s play ball!
