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:
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!
