On your mark, get set, READ!

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.

  1. Reading will begin at 12:30 sharp, and we will wrap up at the end of the day with youth awards and prize drawings.
  2. 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.
  3. 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!
  4. Come planning to read! Many youth raised over and above their individual goal, and will need help reading their assigned chapters. Everyone can participate!
  5. We will be serving light snacks and bottled water for all participants.
  6. All the rules and information can be found on the Bible Readathon page on our website.

See you tomorrow!

WE DID IT!!!

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.

Only one week left for #biblereadathon fundraising!

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!

Bible Readathon – Camp Bibleway 2018 Fundraiser

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?
