Dear ABCNJ Family, I am excited to share with you that ABCNJ's Cedars of Lebanon 2020 campaign for our Baptist Camp Lebanon has just crossed the $200,000 level in gifts and pledges - in less than 2 months!
Pledges and donations from Flemington Baptist Church, Crossroads Haitian Baptist Church and the American Baptist Women's Ministries of New Jersey this week, totaling over $27,000, pushed us past this milestone. As of November 15, 2013, here are our campaign totals:
Total Pledges and Gifts: $204,552 (10.13% of our goal)!
- Ministry Team: $37,435
- ABCNJ Council Leadership: $15,900
- Camp Lebanon Alumni: $10,430
- Churches/Ministries: $128,580
- Individuals: $12,207
We are asking for every ABCNJ church to pledge to raise $10,000 or more by 2020! Our short-term goal is to have 100 commitments from churches by Easter Sunday, 2014. Individuals are also encouraged to pledge and donate cash or stock, to place Lebanon in your will, or to create an annuity with camp as the beneficiary. The American Baptist Foundation will help you do this!
