Well over 2,000 years ago, Christ died on the cross to wash away the debt of our transgressions in order for us to live an eternal life. This was the largest gesture of love in history and can never be repeated just the same. We regularly make an effort to honor the body of Christ and the blood that he shed in remembrance of His ultimate sacrifice. As we celebrate and honor the resurrection of Jesus this Easter and how he relieved us of all of our debts, we want to reflect that same gift to those around us.
“For Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but made alive by the Spirit,”
-1 Peter 3:18
Here at Relevant Church, we’re all about coming together to support our local community. We represent the body of the church way beyond the walls of its building; wherever that may be.
In doing so, we’ve banned together to provide the opportunity to relieve several families and individuals in the community of Riverside of the overbearing load of medical debt with the Riverside County Medical Debt Relief Campaign. We’re taking care of their monetary debt, so we can show our city how Jesus has cancelled their spiritual debt.
We know just how difficult and straining it can be to choose between providing for your family or covering the costs of much needed medical care. So, with your support, we’re on a mission to reach the goal of raising $15,000 in order to cancel a total of $1.5 million of our city’s medical debt this Easter. It may sound pretty ambitious, but we have the faith that it takes to make this happen by working together.
So, you’re probably wondering how we’re going to use $15,000 pay off $1.5 million in medical debt. To answer your question, we’re currently working with a company called RIP Medical Debt which uses donations to purchase bundled medical debt portfolios that have gone through collection agencies for months and even years.
This company targets debt that has been acquired by those that are facing a financial strain and then it forgives it. This is made possible by using third-party that provides cred data. On average, just $1 is leveraged to rid $100 in medical debt through this program! Isn’t’ that amazing?!
In order for the body to fully function, it needs all of it’s limbs and you are a very important part of this Relevant church’s body. We can’t meet this goal without your help!
Here’s just a few of the many great reasons why you should become a part of this movement in clearing the medical debt of those in our community:
- Every single penny that you donate will go toward abolishing medical debt. Nothing goes to the middle man in this mission.
- Just $1 can rid $100 in medical debt from your kind donation. No amount donated is too small!
- Your donation is completely tax deductible. RIP Medical Debt is a 501c3 nonprofit organization.
- There are absolutely no tax consequences for those whose medical debts that are forgiven.
Join us as we Gather, Grow, and Go by supporting our mission to give back to our community in a BIG way! We have a big God who can do big things and we ask that you stand in agreement with us as move to fulfil the mission to put a dent in the medical debt here in Riverside.
