The 2018 Penny Crusade material (www.pennycrusade.com) will ship to our churches this week! The theme of this year’s material is “I Am” and each week will focus on a different aspect of the Advent Christian mission work in Malawi, which is in southeastern Africa. Each week we will have the opportunity to learn about some of the unique challenges and obstacles of sharing the gospel in Africa. We will also see some of the amazing work God is doing through his faithful servants in Malawi.
Penny Crusade is the primary fundraiser for Advent Christian World Outreach and 100 percent of the money collected goes to that work. Last year, Penny Crusade giving was down approximately $45,000 from the previous year. Around 85 percent of the world outreach budget is funded by Penny Crusade so such a significant decline in giving can greatly limit the work that can be done. We are very grateful for each and every church and person who partnered with us through their Penny Crusade giving last year and we hope that all of our churches will prayerfully consider how they can partner with us in 2018. Our goal for Penny Crusade this year is $550,000.
