National Day of Prayer in Springfield
What:The National Day of Prayer is almost here. Join The Q 99.7 as we help unite our community of Christians at the steps of the Old First Church in Springfield for the National Day of Prayer!

If you have a "Q" shirt, please wear it!

Here's more info on this annual event:

Many Christians are unaware that they live in a nation that has a law in place requiring our President proclaim a National Day of Prayer each year on the first Thursday in May.

As citizens and residents of the United States and as believers in Christ Jesus,we not only have a spiritual responsibility according to 1 Timothy 2:1-2 to pray, but a civic duty as well to heed our President’s call to stand in the gap for our nation. Who but God’s people have the ability to enter into the very throne room of Heaven with prayers and petitions!

Our theme this year is For Your Great Name’s Sake! Hear Us... Forgive Us...Heal Us! Taken from Daniel 9:19, which says, “O Lord, Listen! O Lord, Forgive! O Lord, Hear and Act! For Your Sake, O My God...”. As the 2017 National Day of Prayer on May 4th approaches, thousands of individuals, churches, and communities will be working to rally millions of Christian’s to once again heed this call!

Scripture tells us again and again that our fervent prayer is effective. That our loving God responds to His children’s earnest pleas in mighty ways that avail much, and ultimately determine the course of history.

At this crucial time for our nation, we can do nothing more important than pray. Thank you in advance for making this spiritual discipline a personal priority and for standing with us as we encourage others to incorporate prayer in their lives. The Lord has graciously anointed our efforts, empowering them to touch and change many hearts and lives. We look forward to seeing His hand move across our land in exciting ways each May in response to our petitions! In closing, we ask that you prayerfully consider becoming a volunteer in your church or community to lead a National Day of Prayer gathering. May the Lord’s peace fill your heart as you rest in Him throughout the days ahead.

Royal Family Kids Annual Golf Tournament
What:This year marks the 16th year of the Royal Family Kids’ Camp Golf Tournament and it will be the biggest and best year yet. The purpose is to raise the necessary funds to conduct Royal Family Kids’ Camp.

Royal Family Kids Camp is for abused and neglected children, who are in the custody of the Department of Social Services. This will be the 21st year of making a difference in the lives of children from the Pioneer Valley. The children who attend this camp are between the ages of 7 and 11.

Every year in our area, hundreds of children are removed from their homes and placed in the foster care system because of severe abuse or neglect. For these little ones, life has come to a dead end even before it has begun. Through participation in this tournament you can be a part of their cure.

During their time at camp the children participate in crafts, fishing, swimming and many other recreational and educational experiences. This week of camp provides for them the opportunity to experience life from a very positive perspective. They gain confidence not only in themselves but also from the adults who are caring for them during the camp.

Please sign up for the golf tournament to help make this camp possible for these precious children!

Last year’s event raised over $10,000.
Pull out your clubs, grab three friends and mark Saturday, May 20 (8 a.m.) on your calendar. The cost is $90 per person for the tournament (banquet included), $100 for a Business Tee Sponsor, $20 for an In Memory Of donation, or $20 for the Banquet following the tournament.

Hope for Today
But blessed are those who trust in the Lord and have made the Lord their hope and confidence. They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water. Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. Their leaves stay green, and they never stop producing fruit.
Jeremiah 17:7-8
