Supporting Excellence In Christian Education
Donations make a difference in many ways for our school ministry. We seek to glorify the Lord through our mission of Christian education excellence for our students and their families.
Knights Annual Fund
Every year NRCA promotes three Leaving a Legacy giving events throughout each school year that include the Knights Annual Fund, schoolwide Boosterthon events, and the Golf/Tennis Classic. Supporting these Leaving a Legacy giving events helps keep tuition affordable by funding projects outside tuition dollars. As NRCA celebrates 25 years of God’s faithfulness, our Leaving a Legacy giving events will help fund replacing the track in our Knights Stadium, continue to help fund the Student Life Center renovation, and provide funds for our Tuition Assistance Program.
This month, NRCA kicks off our Knights Annual Fund Drive. As we celebrate 25 years of ministry and the God-Story Journey of NRCA, our 2020-2021 schoolwide theme is “Faithfulness”. As God’s faithfulness can be clearly seen throughout NRCA’s 25 years of ministry, this year’s Knights Annual Fund Drive theme is Thrive for Another 25.
Celebrating God’s faithfulness should motivate us to give our time, talents, and treasures for things bigger than ourselves, becoming the cheerful givers that God loves (2 Cor. 9:7). Giving to the Knights Annual Fund is one way we can celebrate God’s faithfulness! Please prayerfully consider supporting the 2020-2021 NRCA Knights Annual Fund Drive and help NRCA Thrive for Another 25.
2020-2021 Fundraising Theme: CELEBRATING 25 YEARS OF GOD’S FAITHFULNESS TO NRCA
As NRCA celebrates our 25th year of ministry, NRCA has chosen the school-wide theme of “Faithfulness” for the 2020-2021 school year. The Bible is full of examples that testify to God’s faithfulness and to the wonderful things He has done. The God-Story Journey of NRCA is no exception as God’s faithfulness can be seen throughout our 25 years of ministry. As we begin a new school year, the 25th year of NRCA, it is a perfect time to celebrate God’s faithfulness.
2020-2021 Boosterthon Character Theme: SPORTS CITY NOW
We are so excited for the Fun Run and Color Run. We will bring our school together for 7 days of celebration, fun, and nightly challenges as we work towards helping our school raise funds for Student Life Center & Stadium Track Renovations, & Tuition Assistance. This year more than ever, we need additional funds to provide an excellent educational experience for all of our students. We completely understand if your family is not in a position to financially support the school right now. You can still be involved by simply SHARING about our fundraiser with friends and extended family online at funrun.com. Sharing IS supporting!
