Envelope Fundraiser for Student Summer Camp

The new year is underway and summer is approaching faster than we realize! Excitement is brewing as the students here at Myrtle Grove Baptist plan to go on a fun, spiritually rejuvenating trip. This year, we’ll be attending Mission FUGE at Palm Beach Atlantic University in West Palm Beach, FL on June 26th - July 1st.  However, many need financial assistance to go with us. So, as a means of giving to the spiritual development of many students, we encourage you to take one (or more) of the fundraising envelopes located on the student summer camp table in the sanctuary hallway/foyer. Pray and seek the Lord for what He may have you offer as a financial blessing. We have a suggested offering range of $5 to $50; however, give the amount you feel impressed to give! Every dollar is appreciated. Thank you and may God bless you immensely!  With a grateful heart,

Walt Magaha – Student Minister

A multicultural, interdenominational gathering of Christ’s followers lifting up the power of the gospel that brings real hope, peace, and unity to all people of our community (city, nation, and the world).

From there we will have a ceremonial march (approximately ¼ mile) down Lillian Highway to the Escambia High School stadium for the rally (music and speakers).
