It’s less than 24 hours from the start of Bible Readathon 2019! Here’s what you need to know when you show up to read tomorrow.
- Reading will begin at 12:30 sharp, and we will wrap up at the end of the day with youth awards and prize drawings.
- Please plan on being there for the entire event. Readers with more chapters will need to begin as early as possible to make sure they can finish in time.
- When you arrive, please stop at the registration table to sign in and sign up for our prize drawings. Thanks to our sponsors, we have some awesome prize packages we’ll be giving away at the end of the event, including free food prizes from Papa John’s and Chick-fil-A!
- Come planning to read! Many youth raised over and above their individual goal, and will need help reading their assigned chapters. Everyone can participate!
- We will be serving light snacks and bottled water for all participants.
- All the rules and information can be found on the Bible Readathon page on our website.
See you tomorrow!
A huge THANK YOU to all those who contributed to our youth camp fundraising goal. I am very pleased to announce that with your help, we met our team goal! That means that all of the participating campers will be receiving an I ♥ MRBC t-shirt before camp. Additional t-shirts will be available for purchase. Please contact Bro. John G. if you would like to purchase one for yourself.
Now comes the best part; satisfying those pledges by reading the Bible at our Readathon open house event this Saturday! There are still plenty of opportunities to help, and we will be reading nearly 500 chapters of the Bible from 12:30-5pm. Stop by, listen, help read, and sign up for some fun door prizes! You’re sure to have a wonderful time, and be encouraged by the scripture reading. You can find all the details on our Bible Readathon page.
This is it. We’re almost there! Today is the last day you can sponsor a camper and have it count toward their Readathon goal. For funds to count toward the individual ($200) or the team goal ($4,500), they must be received by midnight tonight. Many of the campers are so close to reaching their goals. They just need your last minute help! If you haven’t yet contributed, you can easily visit our gofundme page right now, and help us with an eleventh hour donation. If you are donating to a specific individual, please note their name in the comments.
Don’t forget; your support doesn’t end there. Come out and join us on Saturday, June 1st, to participate in our Bible Readathon open house event.
We are less than three weeks away from Camp Bibleway! All campers need to have their registration forms submitted as soon as possible. All necessary forms and instructions are attached at the end of this post. Please contact Bro. John G. if you have any questions.

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!
Check out our Bible Readathon page for more information on our fundraiser and open house, and to subscribe to our blog for incremental updates.
On behalf of our youth, Thank You for your support!
We appreciate all the mothers and ladies in our lives! Be sure to encourage your Mother tomorrow with a call, a card, a gift, or something else that is very special!
Then, plan to join us tomorrow at 10:40 AM for our Mother’s Day Service! We will have special music, and a message from God’s Word prepared for this special day!! You don’t want to miss it!! Invite someone special to attend with you.
BTW, the Mother Daughter Banquet today went very well! Thank you to all who attended and who brought all those special visitors to our Banquet!!
Our 2019 Mother-Daughter luncheon will be held at McGregor Road Baptist Church, 10850 E McGregor Road in Acton this Saturday, May 11th at 11:30. Be thinking about who you will invite to join you to celebrate the special relationship you have with other women who have influenced your life, not just mothers, grandmothers or aunts but also any friend who has been special to you as well. So gather all those women who are special to you and plan to attend this event. There is no charge for the luncheon, and all ladies are welcome.
Congratulations 2018-2019 MRBC Quiz Teams for finishing strong this season! It was nearly a clean sweep with our church taking home all but one of the End of the Year Awards, and both the Junior and Youth Overall Point Awards. We also want to thank all the young men who volunteered to preach at each rally. It was truly a great blessing to see all the youth participating in new ways. The 20th anniversary season was a huge success, and we are looking forward to a great IBYR season again this fall.
Go 2019-2020 Team!!!
