We won’t know the official tally until after the the fundraising deadline next Sunday, but we are already well on our way to our team goal. Every little bit counts, and many campers are close to their individual goals also. That means there will be a lot of reading happening on June 1st!
If you haven’t yet donated, or really want to challenge the youth to read more chapters, now is the time. We’re very excited to see what the Lord is going to do in the hearts of our young people at camp this year, and what better way for them to kick off camp month than reading the Bible at our Readathon!
While your at it, click here to visit our gofundme page for a quick and easy way to share our #biblereadathon with your friends and family through social media.
Camp Bibleway is less than four weeks away, and yesterday marked the start of fundraising for our annual Bible Readathon. Our youth are anxiously looking forward to camp this summer, and need your support to help them raise their camp funds. There are several ways you can help.
Donations are easy through our gofundme page here: https://www.gofundme.com/mrbcbiblereadathon, or send a check or money order to our church with “Camp Bibleway Fundraiser” in the memo field. If you would like it to go toward a specific individual’s camp fund, please note that on your check as well. All donations must be received by May 26th.
Also, help us get the word out! SHARE our fundraising campaign via email, social media, or word of mouth. Every little bit helps!

On behalf of our youth, Thank You for your support!
We finished Revelation at 12:25pm, which means we read the entire New Testament in 21hrs and 25min! A huge thank you to all those who read, listened, prayed, encouraged, brought snacks, and supported the youth through the Bible Readathon. It was definitely a team effort, and we couldn’t have done it without you!
Forty-five minutes left to read and we just started Revelation. We’ll see how far we get! Last chance to take in the Bible Readathon, until next year…
PTL, We just finished Luke chapter 8! We’re having a great time reading and listening to the Word of God. It’s been such a beautiful evening. The sun may be going down, but we’ll continue reading through the night. Many thanks to all who’ve come out to support the youth!
We’re off to a great start. Stop by anytime and show your support for those reading. Hope to see you here!
It’s almost here! The Bible Readathon begins tomorrow, May 25, at 3pm sharp! So far, individuals have committed to 21hrs of reading. Even if you’re not participating, we encourage you to come out and support those who are. Take a moment out of your busy day, and receive a blessing by listening to the Word of God being read aloud.
Participants can find more information available HERE.
Isaiah 55:11 “So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper [in the thing] whereto I sent it.”
Congratulations to our youth and all those who sponsored them for the upcoming Bible Readathon. We were able to raise a total of $3,832! Even though we did not meet our team goal of $4,400, we are very excited for all the youth who will be headed to camp in just a few short weeks.
Stay tuned for more information regarding the readathon. We will be posting the reading schedule this coming Sunday, May 20th, and there will be a short meeting following the evening service to discuss the event details.
There is still opportunities to assist with the camp fund. Please contact Bro. John G. if you have questions or would like to donate.
From now through May 13th, 2018, you can show your support for the youth by sponsoring their attendance to Camp Bibleway 2018. This is one of the most looked forward to events for our youth each year. It is a week of sports, teaching, fellowship, and most importantly, instruction from the Word of God. Each camper receiving sponsorship has pledged to read a portion of the New Testament. Beginning at 3:00pm, Friday May 25th, we will be reading outside, out-loud, and non-stop to all who are willing to listen. If the team goal is met, we will guarantee the reading of the entire New Testament from start to finish. Won’t you please consider sponsoring the youth for this life-changing week?
