November - December Newsletter
November marked the anniversary of our first large event held in partnership with a mega church, which was Calvary Church in Naperville, Illinois, the largest city in West Suburban Chicago. Since then, we've hosted approximately fifteen other events in a variety of mega churches in several states. God has favored us not only with the privilege of working with Christian singles in this area so dear to their hearts, but he has helped us form strategic partnerships with vibrant churches and caring Christian relationship experts. Our partnerships with churches have helped to build and strengthen their singles ministries, while also providing a much-needed service that churches are not designed to offer.
Our second annual "Cache' Connections Live-Naperville" event took place on 11/20/09 and was enjoyed by about 200 Christian singles. Brian Hunt and his band rocked the house with their awesome worship music, and Dr. Juliet Caceres spoke about pacing yourself in relationships. Check out the article that was written in the Naperville Sun.
Cache' Quick Introductions Plays in Peoria
Cache' Connections hosted various "Cache' Quick Introductions" events in November in our major locations, which include Peoria and Chicago, IL, Atlanta, GA, Cincinnati, OH and Detroit, MI. Local singles were employed to host the events. To our surprise, the Peoria event had the best attendance! Some great introductions were made and we've heard of some follow-up dates.
Speaking of great connections ... one of the "winning" couples from the Dating Game in Peoria last month are still going strong! Stay tuned for the full scoop.
Also, a little birdie told us (well, two of them, actually) that they are still enjoying each other's company and intentionally dating after having met at our November 3 Cache' Quick Introductions event in Schaumburg, Illinois. Happy one month anniversary - and "keep them cards and letters coming folks!"
December points us to Christmas celebrations and plans for New Year's Eve. Our Cache' Quick Introductions parties are being transformed into Christmas parties, complete with a white elephant gift exchange to add to the fun. Also for Christmas, we are offering FREE subscriptions from December 5 until the 25th! Just email us and request the "Christmas gift."
Cache' Connections is partnering with Calvary Church in Naperville, IL for "NYE09." Pastor John Absher and we have decided to make the bold move of inviting married couples to attend this gala event, which will feature Christian comedian Nazareth. An elegant meal and social activities will be enjoyed by all. Make plans now! Click here for details.
Looking to the New Year, plans are well underway for our very first national conference, Cache' Connections Disney Getaway, which will take place at the Double Tree Guest Suites in Orlando, Florida on February 26 - 28, 2010. Our beloved Drs. Tom and Bev Rodgers, along with Dr. David Lorenz from First Baptist Orlando, will be our keynote speakers. Several workshops will be available for singles, as well as for pastors and leaders. Make plans now and look forward to a fantastic weekend of sunshine, connecting with other singles, gaining some valuable relationship advice and enjoying the beautiful Disney World resort area!
