CRC DAY total is now $81,897! We are only $3,103 from meeting our $85,000 goal!
What is CRC DAY and how is the money spent that is raised from CRC DAY?
We are very thankful that Crowley’s Ridge College students serve in congregations throughout this area nearly every Sunday, preaching and teaching Bible classes and leading singing. They also go on mission trips during spring break and serve in church internships during the summer. Additionally, several congregations have asked our students to participate in door-knocking campaigns in their communities. We have done this in Batesville, Lake City, Corning, Fisk, MO, and Greenville, MO to name a few. Our Bible Majors have also been invited to speak in Gospel Meetings connected to such door-knocking campaigns. The church in McCrory, AR asked us to help in a meeting this fall, and one of our staff members, Art Smith met recently with their preacher to discuss plans for this project. This type of ministry success with our Bible major students and some students who are not Bible majors would not be possible without the support we receive for our Bible program. CRC DAY contributions make up part of this support.
As a private, not for profit, Christian college, raising support is very critical to our ongoing success. CRC is not included in the budget of the state of Arkansas as public universities and colleges are in this state. We must rely on God, and, on church support, friends and other supporters in funding CRC’s needs such as our Bible program.
I am asking if your congregation has not yet sent a gift for CRC DAY 2018, to please do so. Whether your congregation can give $100 or $1,000 any amount is needed.
Remember, 100% of your gift will be used for CRC’s Bible department needs, including Bible major student scholarships, preacher training, restoration tour field trip, annual Bible Lectureship, and Bible educational materials. Please help us raise the last $3,103 needed to reach our $85,000 goal. If we go over our goal, 100% of the funds will still be used in the Bible department areas just listed.
