Christian Action League
June 30. 2019
Sometimes the Christian Action League has to reach out to its many friends across the state to ask for financial help. People typically spend a lot of their income on vacations and various recreational activities during the summer months, and it’s reflected in a downward turn in giving to the League. Nevertheless, the League’s work continues, especially while state lawmakers are still in session.
Currently, the League is behind by approximately $7,000. We want to pay our creditors and staff on time, but right now we need your help to catch up. Will you please send your best gift today to the Christian Action League?

If you want to know what you are supporting when you give to the Christian Action League, take a moment and consider an article written by a former state legislator, J. Russell Capps. Capp’s article was published recently in Wake Forest’s The Wake Weekly.
Among Greatest Need of our Time
By J. Russell Capps
In a day and age when every day’s news is loaded with accounts of wrongs that have us marching down the wrong road, what we need most are stalwarts of the truth who stand and proclaim the truth.
It is astounding to hear of the huge numbers who are falling for the dangerous fangs of socialism, for example. News coverage makes it sound like an avalanche about to overwhelm us. Were it not for leaders who are driven to protect our nation’s values of original intent; there would be no hope.
Responding strongly to the threats facing us in times like these are the few truly dedicated to proclaiming the truths from God’s word and our incomparable Constitution based on Judeo-Christian standards. On the national scene, there is, in my mind, no greater such leader than Franklin Graham. Graham is constant and consistent in making his voice on the issues heard.
Please prayerfully consider sharing this need with your pastor, your Sunday School class, or some missions organization in your church.
Locally, I know personally one, like Franklin, who is the most dedicated and driven spokesman for our faith and freedoms, Dr. Mark Creech. Creech is Executive Director of the Christian Action League of North Carolina. He is extremely knowledgeable and is the most strongly committed leader I have ever met. He is a strong presence and a mighty voice in the NC General Assembly, respected and of strong influence on members of the Legislature on both sides of the aisle every day.
While admitting the nation’s downward trajectory leaves him discouraged at times, Creech challenges us each one to “commit himself to seize every opportunity to bring true freedom and hope to the countless casualties of a false freedom with no God and with no recognition of the limits that the Creator has set for our peace, protection, and prosperity”.
Please prayerfully consider sharing this need with friends on your email list and social media.
In the words of State House member, Rep. Mark Brody of Anson County, “Dr. Creech has the unique ability to relate common experiences throughout history to their connection in scriptures and he reminds the legislative members that our time, place, and experiences in history are not unique but are a continuing process of forgetting the past and then having to relearn it again”.
NC Supreme Court Justice Paul Newby has noted that “By using examples from our culture, history, and scripture, Dr. Creech reminds us that a view of freedom unattached to morality leads to self-indulgence and self-destruction.”
Newby adds, “Society says freedom means ‘if it feels good, do it’ and that following that path leads to happiness. Yet our society exposes that lie, showing that unbridled freedom leads to hopelessness which finds us in a mess of our own creation…”
That’s why it is such a great need in our society today to have strong leaders like Franklin Graham and Dr. Mark Creech in their respective places proclaiming the truth unhindered.
They need our prayer support!
Nothing is more important than prayer. However, financial support is also desperately needed. Gifts to the Christian Action League are some of the best-spent dollars for positively impacting our culture for the cause of Christ. Please don’t easily dismiss this request. Many sacrifices are made by the League’s staff on your behalf – on behalf of Christ’s church. Is it too much to ask a small sacrifice of you?
