Builders Club

April 2021 | Commencement Offering: Replacing the Well Used Gymnasium Floor – seeking $350,000:

The Gymnasium at MBU is used daily for many key activities at Maranatha: athletic events, chapel, fine arts, student activities, camps, and more. This is, in many ways, the most active building on campus, and the one that has an impact on the students, guests, and visiting teams.

The main floor in the Gymnasium was installed during the original facility construction in 1972 and has been carefully and meticulously maintained every summer. Through the refinishing, sanding, and sealing, the floor is now thin causing athletes to be more susceptible to injury. To protect our students and visiting athletic teams, the floor is going to be replaced.

To do this replacement, the bleachers, wood, and concrete flooring will be removed. A new concrete floor will be installed, with a new, state-of-the-art gym floor added over that concrete. This is a major undertaking and will take much of May, June, and July to complete. The total cost for this work is $350,000.

Thanks for your continuing support of MBU, its students, faculty, and staff. You are a blessing to each of us, and we are grateful for your support.

Athletics Club

March-May 2021 | Team Video Equipment

Thank you to all who have faithfully contributed to the Athletic Club. Your contributions have enabled us to purchase much needed equipment and to provide for the “extras” in support of the student-athletes and coaches of Maranatha Baptist University in areas that go beyond the current funding allocations.

Recent support has provided funds to help with the purchase of customized tents for our outdoor sport events, and a “home” for the trainer in poor weather conditions. Additionally, recent funds will be used to refurbish and/or replace the softball pitching machine.

The project for March-May is to upgrade our video equipment for the volleyball and softball teams. The ability to record both game and training sessions aids in the development of our student-athletes. This equipment allows the coaches to further analyze areas in need of improvement, and then to provide necessary training drills and scrimmage activities to take our student-athletes to the next level of skill.

The current project goal is $1,400.

On behalf of the student-athletes of Maranatha, we thank you for your support through the Athletic Club.

Go Sabercats! #Snarlstrong

May 2021 | Microphones and Microphone Stands for Gymnasium

We are grateful for those of you who pray for us. We need that for our day-to-day challenges. Thank you! 

Spring semesters go by like a whirlwind. This one has been no different. All three choirs had successful tours using Christian camps as a home base. Our thanks to Camps CoBeAc, Chetek, and Assurance for their sacrificial hospitality. Our second “Music on Mondays” concert featured the 414 String Quartet. They were fantastic. Our Classical Kids concert was an all-Beethoven program, and yours truly dressed up like Beethoven and performed a concerto movement with the band. Our final choir concert featured six student conductors rehearsing and conducting small, select groups from our choirs. Our spring play, The Count of Monte Cristo was excellent in every respect. Our summer ensembles, Heritage Singers and Praisemen, have been rehearsing for their summer travels. Follow their concert schedules on our website.

This month’s project is to replace microphones/stands for concerts in the gym. We hope to raise around $1,400.

Thank you for your thoughtfulness in helping us as we seek to instruct a future generation of Christian servants.

God bless you.
