Greetings from Concerned Women for America of North Carolina!
What does it mean to be a Christian? It means of course to love God with all your heart and love your neighbor as yourself (Matthew 22:36-40). I’d like to talk with you right now about an excellent way to help your neighbor — through the ministry of CWA of North Carolina.
Consider making a difference in the lives of others in 2017 on the issues that are important to you: sanctity of life, defense of family, education, religious liberty, sexual exploitation, support for Israel, and national sovereignty. Every one of these issues affects the life, liberty and happiness of our neighbors. Consider joining our team. We’ll do it together. YOU ARE GREATLY NEEDED!
Here are a handful of opportunities for involvement. Whether you have a lot of time or just a little, there is a place for you. Please prayerfully read through this list.
- Continue responding to our e-alerts, our articles on our webpage and our Facebook posts and forward them on to like-minded friends, family and pastors. Your prayers and action make all the difference.
2. Participate in a local Prayer/Action Chapter.
3. Or, consider being a Prayer/Action Chapter Leader. The Prayer/Action Chapter Leader plans and oversees monthly Prayer/Action Chapter meetings in a church, neighborhood or community. The emphasis is threefold: pray, educate and act. Each leader is provided with a monthly Prayer/Action Newsletter that includes an inspirational piece and legislative updates and action items, as well as prayers and praises. This newsletter is designed for use as a guide for the monthly meetings.
4. Consider joining our State Steering Committee. We have several important volunteer opportunities:
- Issues Specialist — Educates members on the numerous state and national legislative issues that are impacting the American family. She must fully understand the state goals, vision and mission of CWA of North Carolina, and in addition have the expertise and passion to specialize in one of CWA’s Seven Core Issues: sanctity of life, religious liberty, defense of family, sexual exploitation, education, national sovereignty and support for Israel. The Issues Specialist has strong research and writing skills, and will work closely with the State Director to prepare letters to the editor, e-alerts and articles for CWA publications and social media. This position is an approved State Steering Committee position.
- State Communications Coordinator — Requires minimal computer knowledge. Training is provided. Considerable time would be spent in the area of social media (i.e. Facebook and Twitter). The Communications Coordinator, working closely with the State Director, should be flexible and able to send timely news releases. She must have the ability to write. This position is an approved State Steering Committee position.
- Development Coordinator — Informs the state organization of fundraising opportunities to financially support state goals and the mission of CWA of North Carolina. The Development Coordinator is an approved State Steering Committee position. She is a strong networker, encouraging community and business relationships with other like-minded organizations in support of CWA’s Seven Core Issues. In addition to identifying fundraising opportunities, the Development Coordinator will be called upon to write letters to members asking for financial support, as well as write articles for the North Carolina News Report to promote state fundraising projects.
5. Consider attending one or more of the events that CWA of North Carolina will be putting on, participating in or endorsing. Watch for more information to come via email.
6. Partner with us by giving a tax-deductible gift towards the work of CWA of North Carolina. We are run by all volunteers; therefore, all contributions go straight to the work at hand for education materials, gas expenses for trips to the state capitol and other locations in the state, postcards for our Encourage-A-Legislator (EAL) project and more. Our two largest expenses this year are $1,500.00 for printed materials (bi-yearly newsletter, brochures and EAL materials) and $00 shipping expenses. Please do what you can to assist.
7. Contribute online. Or, send us a check to the address below written out to “Concerned Women for America.” Be sure to put “CWA of North Carolina” on the memo line.
The mindset used to be: “Is it okay for Christians to be involved in public policy?” The question now should be: “Is it okay for Christians to not be involved in public policy?” If we aren’t involved in public policy as believers, who will?
I look forward to hearing from you!
“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.” (Matthew 5:14)
