Reach Campaign

Reach your church, your community, and your world.

Our Causes

Community Care

Through your generosity we will be able to pack 25,000 meals for families in need with Meals of Hope, assist with relieving medical debt, and provide Christmas gifts and necessities to children and adults in the community through Angel Tree.

Families

We believe in pouring into the next generation and your gift will help us with upgrades, an addition to Orchard Hill Ministries, a facility and partnership with Next Level Sports, and a much-anticipated Child Development Center.

Campus Expansions

Your above-and-beyond offering will unlock an opportunity for our campus facilities to grow and help people experience Jesus. Your gift will help with upgrades to Marathon's campuses as well as help launch a future campus in 2024.

Our Goal

It is our goal to raise $100,000 by December 31st, 2022.

From Pastor Eddie

If you had told me at the end of last year everything that God would do this year, I don't know if I would have believed you. God continues to blow me away with His goodness and faithfulness. 2022 has been a year that I will never forget. . . but I know that God's not done yet. We've had some pretty spectacular things happen this year and we truly could not have done any of them without you. 

We launched the Greenville Campus on January 23rd and it has been a joy watching the campus grow and thrive. We launched the Orchard Hill After School Program at our Powdersville Campus. Through this program, we see multiple families from our community every single week and are able to care for their children and make a positive impact on their lives. Marathon also celebrated 25 years of ministry! 25 YEARS! We really had no idea what God had in store when He called us to start a church so many years ago.

Your generosity allows us to continue to impact our community and inspire people to follow Jesus and experience His love in a real and tangible way. I hope you prayerfully consider partnering with us and help us raise $100,000 this year to continue to reach people through Orchard Hill Camp, Community Care opportunities, and so much more!

Blessings,

Eddie Cox, Lead Pastor

Community Care

  • RIP Medical Debt

    Over a hundred million Americans, one in three, struggles with the weight of medical debt. Every day 1 in every 2 Americans choose between paying medical bills and covering basic needs. Every $100 relieves $10,000 of medical debt. 

    How RIP Works:
    You make a donation
    RIP uses data analytics to pinpoint the debt of those most in need: households that earn less than 4x the federal poverty level (varies by state and family size) or whose debts are 5% or more of annual income.

    • RIP buys medical debt at a steep discount
    They buy debt in bundles, millions of dollars at a time at a fraction of the original cost. This means your donation relieves about 100x its value in medical debt.

    • Together we wipe out medical debt
    People across the country receive letters that their debt has been erased. They have no tax consequences or penalties to consider. Just like that, they’re free of medical debt.

  • Meals of Hope

    Your gift can change the life of hundreds of families that go hungry each week in our communities.

    We are partnering with Meals of Hope to pack and provide a record-breaking 25,000 nutritionally fortified, healthy meals for families and hungry children in need within our community.

    About Meals of Hope:
    Meals of Hope food packages were designed to address the need for an economical, nutritious solution to aid in the fight against hunger. Each bag contains enough food to provide six to eight meals. In only two hours each person will generally pack around 60 bags. That’s roughly 350 meals for our hungry working families, children, seniors, and veterans.

    At Meals of Hope, it is of the utmost importance that the food goes where it is intended. This means the food packed within a community will stay within that community unless instructed otherwise. Meals of Hope prides itself on being able to keep food local within communities in the United States. Although we are strongly focused on keeping it local, Meals of Hope has also partnered with organizations to help areas outside the United States including Haiti, Jamaica, Nicaragua, Malawi, and the Bahamas.

  • Angel Tree

    So many families in our surrounding communities are unable to provide Christmas presents and basic needed items for their loved ones. We are partnering with local schools, retirement homes, and families in need to help provide clothes, shoes, and toys this Christmas.

    How Angel Tree Works:
    • Select an Angel from the tree at your local campus
    • Shop and purchase the needs and wants listed on the card
    • Return your gift by the designated drop-off date

    Not able to go shopping?
    You can simply donate and designate to the Reach Campaign and a portion will benefit Angel Tree!

  • Orchard Hill Ministries

    At Orchard Hill Camp + After School Program, we are committed to providing a safe environment where campers can have fun, grow in character, develop lasting friendships and make lifetime memories while having a Christ-centered experience.

    Your kids will have an incredible time at summer camp with their weeks full of exciting indoor and outdoor activities with expertly trained counselors who are passionate about caring for and leading school-aged kids. Our After School Program helps with assistance in homework, physical indoor and outdoor activities, arts and crafts, a daily snack, and more, and your child will get a chance to interact with other children in a safe, structured environment outside of the classroom.

    We have seen the positive impact Orchard Hill Ministries has had in our local community and it is our hope is to increase enrollment capacity at our Powdersville site and launch a Greenville site with an expected start date in Fall 2023.

Campus Expansions
