Our community is a generous one, as witnessed at our annual gala. Every gala offers guests the opportunity to engage in and help realize the vision God has for Maranatha and its students. Guests also enjoy great company, auctions, delicious food, and much more.

2024 Gala will be held on April 20, 2024!

On April 20, Leopold’s Mississippi Gardens will welcome our guests again for a fun evening elegantly designed to highlight Maranatha’s vision and mission, all in a beautiful setting along the river.  Each year, the Annual Gala is an evening of fun and friendship supporting Christian Education. This celebration includes a silent auction, social, dinner, live auction, and guest speakers, and as always, we will highlight our students with an opening production. 

Early bird ticket pricing is now available!

"Yachtsa Fun" at the 2023 Gala 

The 2023 Maranatha Gala charted a new course, hosting the big event at Leopold’s Mississippi Gardens. The new setting featured a beautiful banquet hall with river views and was perfect for the Yacht Cruise theme. Nearly 200 Guests came dressed in their sailing best and were treated to a fun night of great food, fellowship, and fundraising. The gala raised over $180,000 for new carpet on the first and second floors, new furniture for some classrooms, the Mall Hall, and the Learning Lane. Plus, we were able to add new equipment to the playground, with even more on order and scheduled to be installed in the spring.

Thank you to all the sponsors, volunteers, students, and staff that made this event possible. We cannot wait to return to Leopold’s for the 2024 Gala on Saturday, April 20. We hope to see you there.
