Dear Campers and Supporters,
I write again on behalf of the board of the PRN Family Bible Camp, to both thank our supporters and to make an additional plea for financial support from both individuals and congregations in our region.
Tremendous response brings Bible Camp fund to the positive!
As of the date of this letter, we have received $6,800.29 in donations, bringing our camp fund to a positive balance of $2,798. We are grateful for your support and hesitate to ask for additional funds, but the truth is that there are many start-up costs for the Bible Camp ministry and we do not currently have the funds necessary to pay all those costs.
Our goal is to raise an additional $2,500 to ensure that we have the resources necessary to make Bible Camp 2016 a great success.
While we would gladly receive additional gifts from individuals, we are writing to request that you bring our need to your church boards and ask that they prayerfully consider adding Bible Camp to the church monthly budget or give a special one-time gift to help meet our need.
Gifts can be made online or by mail:
use your debit or visa card at www.BibleCampRocks.com
or mail a check to CLB – PRN Bible Camp
P.O. Box 655, Fergus Falls, MN 56538-0655
Regular, ongoing support of the ministry by several churches would not only help position us for a great camp in 2016, but it would also bring long term financial health to Bible Camp and ensure its continued existence for years to come.
Thank you for your support and action in response to this special request. We know that our supporters have a deep love of and appreciation for Bible Camp. We need you to express that to your congregation and church leaders and encourage them to financially support Bible Camp.
Scholarships bring new families to camp
In addition to our need for immediate funds, we also want to take this opportunity to encourage congregations to create and facilitate scholarship programs within their church to help families experience camp. Board member, Warren Hall, along with Pastor Brandon Pangman, have challenged our congregations and supporters to bring 20 new first-time families to Bible Camp this year. We believe this will only be possible through scholarships created, funded and administered by local congregations.
Together, we can continue to see God use Bible Camp to bring hope to families and youth in our region.
Director, PRN Family Bible Camp
