An Amazing Banquet

April 12

We held our Fargo Dessert Banquet earlier this week and it was wonderful! Over 300 of you attended our event. You also brought family members and friends who were not as familiar with our organization, which was tremendous. We love to “get the message out” about who we are and provide our vision for North Dakota to both existing and potential ministry partners.

One of the themes I highlighted at the banquet was being passionate about your values. We at Family Policy Alliance of North Dakota are passionate about many family values, including:

  • Pro-life issues, both for preborn children and for those facing end-of-life challenges;
  • Protection of families against pornography, drug abuse, and prostitution;
  • Sanctity of marriage and its biblically-based definition as a union between one man and one woman;
  • Rights of parents to have the final say on how best to educate their children; and
  • Religious freedom to express your faith in all aspects of life, particularly if you are a business owner or church leader.

If you share our passion for any of these issues, we stand with you in your passion and are committed to fight for your values. However, it’s critical to recognize that taking action on your passions and beliefs is not optional. If you truly feel passionate about these issues, action is the only logical outcome.

One way to take action is to partner with us. We can be your eyes and ears when you don’t have time to monitor all these issues and decide which ones need action. Your gifts enable us to continue representing you in the halls of Congress, at the Capitol in Bismarck, and in day-to-day interactions with businesses, churches, and others who share our values.

Please prayerfully consider financially supporting us, both for election and non-election work. While many of you contributed to our work at the banquet, for those of you who couldn’t attend, you can still financially support us with a gift by donating online. Your support and encouragement mean the world to us.

We thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent together at the banquet. I’m so excited that you share our vision of a North Dakota where God is honored, religious freedom flourishes, families thrive, and life is cherished.
