Next week begins our Missions fundraiser, aka Penny Wars! This year, we will be raising money for Rosita Cruz’s school in Oaxaca, Mexico.
Penny Wars is a 4 week marathon where the students, teachers, parents, and family bring their pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters, and bills and compete to raise money for a specific group/individual that will come to our Missions Conference the first week of March. The goal is to have the highest amount of pennies. There is a winner every week, and that plays into overall grand winner (calculated at the end of the month). Pennies (value 1 cent) are the only positive currency (that count as points for the class). “Bombs” are negative currency which impact the class total with negative points (the silver coins, dollar bills, checks. For example: nickels -5 cents, dimes -10 cents, 10 dollar bill = -1,000 cents).
Parents, students, and any willing donor, can come to the front office and “trade in” the value of silver coins, bills, and checks and egiving for “paper pennies” – paper slips that will count as the positive amount of the cash value.
There is a bit of war strategy that goes on among both students and teachers; it is fun and raises a good chunk of change for our friends abroad.
Also, below is a link to give via egiving (please put under “For Penny War Donation” and leave the class you want it to go towards in the comment section):
HCC’s annual Preview Day for prospective students and their parents or youth leaders will be held March 20th. If you know someone who is interested in Bible College and HCC would be a good fit, please invite them to attend. More information and online registration are available at www.heartlandcollege.edu, or call 660-284-4800.
Twenty-Five Years of Hope
This year, the Heartland community is celebrating twenty-five years of seeing people find hope through Jesus. The vision started with businessman and founder Charles Sharpe. As he drove across his Missouri farmland one day, he thought, “This would be a good place for kids.”
He was right. Charlie was thinking of a summer camp, but the vision grew into a full community with recovery centers, schools, and businesses all built around a local church. We call ourselves an intentional community because our intention is to introduce men, women, and children to the only hope that lasts – a life devoted to God, through Jesus Christ, by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Please feel free to join this year of celebration in person or online. Hope often becomes contagious, and we pray that you will catch it. You are also welcome to become a part of sharing the hope with others through your prayers, your friendship, and your financial investment.
