RAISE THE ROOF

WE NEED YOUR HELP

If you were at church on June 2nd you heard about our capital campaign to RAISE THE ROOF!

Our congregation is raising $500,000 to pay for the upgrades and repairs that will be needed over the next five years to keep our campus functional and ready to serve future generations. The good news (actually, GREAT news) is that our reserves, designated gifts, and pledges from your current and past church leaders already total $265,000, putting us over halfway to our goal.

If you’ve driven by the campus recently you’ve seen roofing crews at work on our worship center. This work is a big part of our RAISE THE ROOF project list and involved not only replacing the leaking roofing but also replacing 105 sheets of damaged plywood. The total of cost of the worship center roof replacement will be $170,000.

We’ve got information on the other projects we’re looking forward to finishing over the next few years along with details about how everyone can participate. If you have questions please email us at [email protected]

How to Pledge:

  1. Fill out the pledge card that was included in your worship folder on June 2nd Sunday and place it in the offering plate. There are extra pledge cards available at the Raise the Roof table in the Atrium and at the Welcome Center.
  2. Through Realm. Login to your Realm account and navigate to the Giving option on the left hand side of the screen. Next to the blue “Give” button, you will see a gray “Pledge” button. From there, you can set up your pledge gift to Raise the Roof. You can even set up reoccurring gifts to Raise the Roof right from that page as well.
  3. Through the Realm mobile app. This app allows you to use your phone or tablet to give (and if you haven’t downloaded it yet, you should give it a try!). Open the app and tap on the “Giving” icon at the bottom of the screen. Once that opens, you will see a “Pledge” button at the top of the screen. Tapping this button will take you to a screen where you can make your pledge.
  4. Call the JK Office at 206-241-1606 and we can enter your pledge into our database for you. You can also email [email protected] with your pledge details (be sure to include frequency of pledge donations).

You can always make a one-time gift on Realm to the Raise the Roof fund through either of the options above, using the Giving tabs instead of the Pledge tabs. You can also give by check; be sure to put “Raise the Roof” in the memo line.

Thank you for your generosity, and help us to RAISE THE ROOF!
