Spring Break - Support Raising Training Meeting!

Thursday, Nov. 14th 2013 at 9:30pm

Art Gallery Room, Willard Straight Hall

If you're signed up to go on one of the International Spring Break Trips or are still thinking about it, come out to this training meeting! We will talk about the support raising process. Support raising is asking others to partner with you in prayer and financial support to do God's work. We will walk you through the process on why we raise money this way and how to do it.

If you didn't give in your deposit yet, you can come out and give it there.

Essentially, if you're even thinking about an international Spring Break Trip, you should be here.

2nd Deposit due Dec 6th - $300

Or give total of $500 by Dec 6th


Checks can be written to "Cru"


If you aren't already, you should get involved in a community group. These are Cru small groups where life happens. We get together in groups of 8-12 and have dinner together, study the Word together, and invite others along with us on this journey to love Jesus. We have 21 small groups, so please reach out to one of the leaders and get involved! We do believe that you can only thrive as a believer when you're in a gospel centered community!
