Not too long ago, 20/20 did an expose’ on the Independent Fundamental Baptist “movement”. As slanted and unbalanced as it was, there is a part of “Fundie” ministry that needs to be addressed: youth ministry fund raising. LNN Investigative Reports has released the first part in a two part series that exposes the ugly realities.
Shocking, isn’t it? Don’t worry, next week’s episode gives an excellent alternative called Club 52.
Our primary fundraiser for missions trips is “Club 52″, an ongoing special offering we ask the people of our church to take part in. All one has to do to join the club is give one dollar a week to this special account (which comes out to $52 in a year, hence the name!). It’s an easy fundraiser that requires little more than a little bit of advertising. The following video is a fun (albeit silly) promo we’ll be showing in church. We’re headed to Alaska in August and just wanted to get people thinking about it. So many give very faithfully, but maybe we’ll pick up a few more club members.
