I need YOU for motivation!
I am riding with our first annual
Iowa Conference UCC RAGBRAI Team, July 24-30th,
and I need your support to keep me moving!
I, Brigit Stevens, plan to bike the 420 miles of this year’s RAGBRAI route! (For non-Iowans, RAGBRAI = the Register’s Annual Great Bike Ride Across Iowa.) But, in order to do that, I need to continue with my weekly training rides, and frankly, I need extra motivation these days. Will you help me?? Will you sponsor my RAGBRAI ride for each mile I actually ride during the event? I will keep a log and have others verify it for accuracy, but knowing that you have sponsored each mile I ride will help me keep pushing even when I want to stop!
I am riding to help STRENGTHEN THE CHURCH! You see, the Church is not its buildings, the Church is its people. And I am one of those people. AND, riding this many miles on a bike will make me STRONGER!
ALL of your donations will go to the UCC STRENGTHEN THE CHURCH offering. This is an awesome special offering of the United Church of Christ that supports vitality and growth in our churches! To read more about it follow this link: www.ucc.org/stc.
You can sponsor me for an amount per mile and can name a maximum amount that you are willing to contribute, or you can sponsor me for one flat rate just for participating. After the event, I will return to tell you how many miles I biked and collect your contribution. Make checks out to Iowa Conference UCC and write “Strengthen the Church” in the memo line. You may also use the red “Donate” button at www.ucciaconf.org to make your contribution. All contributions are tax-deductible.

To sponsor me, or our Iowa Conference team, email me or call me at the Conference office: firstname.lastname@example.org or 515-277-6369.
I’ll keep you posted on our team’s progress and look for updates during and after the last week of July. In the meantime, please START PRAYING for our STRENGTH!
Brigit Stevens, Associate Conference Minister
