As we consider the year, thus far, it has been good. Yes, there have been some personal setbacks and losses, but even in these we see the goodness of God, and certainly we must be thankful for God’s amazing provision for our lives and church.
We entered summer with a generous gift from a former member; one that allowed us to put a new roof on the worship center and to add significantly to the Pastoral Search Fund. Just as a reminder, this is a capital campaign agreed to by the membership in 2015, and amended this year. To help us track the campaign you will find a “game board” in the church entrance.
The “game” began in 2015 with nothing but ended that year with $13,000. Our goal is $60,000 and the good news is that currently there is $42,000 in reserve, meaning we only need another $18,000 to finish the game. Can we reach $50,000 or even more by year end? That’s up to each one of us, but I believe it is entirely possible, and frankly, by December of 2018 I believe we can reach our goal and finish the game. CAN WE COUNT ON YOU TO HELP?
We are moving ahead by setting up a Pastoral search team who will update the church profile and get that process moving in a positive direction.
