At the end of December, our Ridge Students will be attending the Xtreme Winter conference in Gatlinburg Tennessee. It will be a great weekend for our students as they worship, bond with adult leaders, each other, and we pray, will have an experience with Jesus that will change their lives.
The cost to attend will be $200 per student. This covers their ticket, lodging and food for the weekend.
“Why don’t they do a car wash or sell some donuts?”
Good question. There’s a few specific reasons we don’t want our students our selling donuts or doing car washes to raise money for these type of events. Without getting into a lot of detail, here’s why:
#1- Nothing says “We don’t care” like saying, “Go do a car wash where you’ll raise maybe a hundred dollars, get a sunburn and then be disappointed.”
#2- We value our students and we want to show them they are valued by our support to them
#3- If we care about it, we should fund it. Period.
We don’t want a single student to not be able to go or one family to worry about being able to send their student to this life changing event. Would you prayerfully consider sponsoring a student that may not be able to attend due to financial constraints with a scholarship?
