This Fall semester, BSK is offering all of our courses but one at both our Georgetown and Louisville sites, making it easier for more students to pursue degrees. BSK is also busy with the ramp up to our new M.Div. with a concentration in Rural Ministry, set to begin in Fall 2019.
Your gifts are so important in our work to equip students and churches for the exciting years of ministry ahead.

Dear Friends of Sunrise,
Your recent gift to Sunrise is giving kids like Sam hope for a brighter future and a home filled with love and acceptance. This is Sam’s story...
Sam came to Sunrise’s Spring Meadows Center last June, struggling with family trauma. His biological father’s rights were terminated due to long-term abuse that was inflicted on Sam, his sisters, and his mother. Sam’s biological mother was unresponsive to his phone calls, and Sam was not allowed contact with his sisters who were in a foster home.
In spite of these setbacks, Sam was determined to work incredibly hard. From June to November, Sam worked with Sunrise Therapist Amanda Bradford to increase his social skills, improve his grades learn effective anger management skills, overcome his depression, and stabilize his trauma. But in January, Sam was told that his mother was voluntarily terminating her parental rights. In February, he had a goodbye visit with his mother and sisters. “Needless to say, it was heart wrenching,” said Amanda. “Sam was so devastated yet so brave.”
The ending of Sam’s success story is yet to be written. But Sunrise is committed to doing everything possible so that Sam’s story has a happy ending. Because of Sam’s hard work at Sunrise’s Spring Meadows Center, he has gained skills necessary to be matched with a family that can give him the love he so desperately longs for and deserves. Amanda remains hopeful that the right family is out there somewhere for Sam. Could it be yours?
Your prayers and support are what Sunrise kids need the most, and what can help make finding a home for Sam possible. Thank you for your partnership with Sunrise and for your love for Kentucky’s kids.
Dear Friends in Christ:
Thank you for your recent gift to Campbellsville University for the Scholarship Fund.
Campbellsville University is equipping thousands of students to become effective servant-leaders. Our mission is based on providing a superior education coupled with the life changing influence of a distinctly Christian environment. This combination is resulting in students of character. Our emphasis of servant leadership is based on Christ’s call for us to put others first and to serve in His name. We are humbly grateful for our mission to see lives changed for the Gospel.
This year we have another strong enrollment with over 8,000 students, and CU also has been ranked in U.S. News and World Report’s “American’s Best Colleges” for 25 consecutive years which is a milestone and honor for this 111-year-old institution. We are impacting thousands of lives each year for a better future both academically and spiritually with our 63 undergraduate options, 17 master’s degrees, five postgraduate areas, and eight pre-professional programs. All of this success is a reflection of the love, prayers, and generosity of those who desire to see lives changed here at Campbellsville University.
We realize that without your financial support we would not have such wonderful news of strong enrollment and ranking. Thank you.

Dear Church Family
Thank you to everybody who sent cards and prayers and donated Bibles after the passing of my dear husband, Tom Hastie.
Many of you probably knew his mother, Jane Hastie, who played the organ at the church a long time ago. And now our oldest granddaughter, Aubrey McGuffey, is attending preschool there. The circle of life goes on.

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
I have been so deeply touched by all your prayers for a successful surgery and recovery! I don’t know most of you but to get prayer cards from you makes me feel an even closer bond with Christians everywhere who share Jesus’ love and care for others. I had a gamma knife radiation treatment today (6-22-18), so this chapter in my fight against cancer is over!
Thank you, Thank you!
In His Name,
Lexington Avenue Baptist Church,
This letter acknowledges your recent gift of $200.00 to Baptist Seminary of Kentucky for the general fund. We have received your tax-deductible contribution and appreciate your support.
BSK is growing! Our enrollment is up from the previous year by nearly 50% and we are already seeing strong interest for Fall 2018 at both our Georgetown and Louisville campuses. Our endowments have grown by over $200,000 over the past year, and BSK was recently awarded a $300,000 grant from the Eula Mae and John Baugh Foundation to support our growing presence at Simmons College in Louisville.
Your generous gift is helping BSK form men and women for ministry in the church, counseling and chaplaincy.

Dear Friends of Kathryn,
We want to thank you for the monthly card expressing your prayers for Kathryn. I read the names to her and usually receive a smile in return. It is not important if she can remember your names but it is important to us that you remember her.

Dear Church Family,
Let me take this opportunity once again to thank you for permitting me to give the Gideon report on June 10th in our church, and for the love offering given in the amount of $1,420. This will allow us to purchase and place 284 Bibles or 1,136 Testaments out in our world where they are still so desperately needed, and in most places, gladly received. I also thank you for all the Bibles that you purchase throughout the year by using the Gideon Card program.
Thanks again for being such a mission-minded church and for including the Gideons in those you support.
Thank you for your support of Haven Care Center. Through our Bottles of Blessings program donation allows us to pursue more avenues of outreach to those who need accurate facts on abortion, parenting, adoption, choosing life, and healthy relationships.
We are honored to serve our Master and King above all and be His defenders of unborn lives. Serving individuals and families that are facing extremely difficult decisions and circumstances is our privilege. Your partnership give our community a “Safe Haven” as we strive not only to educate, but also show the love of Christ to our clients.
Under His Wings,
The Board, Staff, and Volunteers at Haven Care Center
Thank you for the Gideon Bibles given in memory of Steve by our loving church.
