Day 1 of Sharathon 2014 is over and we're off to a great start!
We're currently 43% of the way towards our overall goal of $900,000, finishing at $391,107 at the end of our first day of fundraising. Thank you so much to everyone who called or went on-line today to pledge your support!
What is Sharathon? Why, every March, do we take three or four days to ask our listeners for financial support?
Well, KLRC is a listener-funded ministry. The generous financial support of people like you who love and appreciate the ministry of KLRC is what keeps us going. Literally. But that's the easy answer.
Yes, we need your support to keep KLRC running, but why is that worth giving to?
I don’t know about you, but I’m a planner. When I set out on a journey, I want to know where I’m going and how I’m going to get there. I like to plan for contingencies, research the area I’ll be visiting, and gather as much information as I can before I start my trip.
Recently I read about Abram. He went on a little journey with God. He had no idea where they were going, only that God was calling him to follow. So in faith, Abram stepped out from what he knew and stepped into an unknown future. It’s easy for you and I to not be surprised by Abram’s decision. After all, we know where he winds up.
Welcome to the kick-off of Sharathon week!
At KLRC, we don’t start Sharathon with fundraising. Instead, we choose to take our first day to focus on Praise and Prayer. While the financial need for KLRC is large, we know the value of putting our eyes on the One who is bigger.
At KLRC, we’re so excited to be celebrating 30 years of serving our community!
For many years we’ve had the privilege to partner with so many organizations making a Positive Difference. As we get ready for our annual Sharathon, we wanted to do something special with our friends at Samaritan Community Center.
Sharathon 2014 is coming up March 18th-21st, and we need your help to make it happen!
It takes a lot of people to pull Sharathon together. Imagine -- several thousand phone calls over a few days on 10 phone lines. Plus, a prayer room with at least one person scheduled to pray during every hour of the event! That's why KLRC relies on our amazing volunteers to make Sharathon a success!
