A "Reformed" Fund Raising Idea
I have blogged in the past about the importance of reformed resources and reformed theology within youth ministry programs. It’s just as important to have resources with a reformed perspective for the entire congregation. Faith Alive Christian Resources has come up with a creative idea that will share reformed resources within a congregation AND raise funds for the youth group. Youth groups will earn 40% profit on all books sold through this program.
You can check out the program at youthgroupbooksale.org.
Here’s how it works:
1. A youth group leader signs up on line.
2. The youth group receives a packet with book samples, posters, order forms, and bulletin inserts.
3. Church orders are placed with Faith Alive by May 1.
4. Books arrive at the church by May 15.
5. The youth group delivers the books.
Book titles include:
· Daylight, by Andrew Kuyvenhoven
· Home Grown, by Karen DeBoer
· Leaving Egypt, by Chuck DeGroat
· Sixty at Sixty, by James Schaap
· Song of a Scientist, by Calvin DeWitt
· Honest to God, by James Schaap
· 150 – Finding Your Story in the Psalms, by Kevin Adams
· Living & Loving Life, by Howard Vanderwell
· The Day Metallica Came to Church, by John Van Sloten
· God Loves me Storybook Sets, by Patricia Nederveld
I think this is a pretty good idea and I figured others who scan this blog on the Network might find it helpful. Sign up at youthgroupbooksale.org or give Faith Alive Christian Resources a call.
