Building on the Promise Capital Campaign

Our church will soon be 100 years old. Will our spiritual house be healthy enough to live another 100 years?

What promises can you make to ensure that it does?

Together, we are making a promise to ensure that our spiritual house is a strong, welcoming community of faith that invites others to join us wherever they are on life's journey.

We are making a promise to be good stewards of our spiritual house so that it is a safe place for future generations to call home.

We are making a promise to listen to the legacy of this congregation, whose core value is to act as a servant church and give to others from our blessings.

To uphold our promises and respond faithfully to the needs of the church, we hope to raise $300,000 over the next 3 years to:

  • Replace the carpet that is buckling and unsafe
  • Replace outdated electrical systems in the sanctuary with energy efficient lighting
  • Upgrade the alarm system
  • Widen and enhance the west entrance of the church
  • Update heating and cooling instrumentation for greater energy efficiency
  • Invest in a feasibility study to create a plan for reducing our carbon footprint by 50% by the year 2030
  • Engage in preventative maintenance to save money
  • Invest in anticipated improvement expenses, such as parking lot resurfacing, furnace replacement, and other projects that will eventually become necessary
  • Act as stewards of the community and give 15% of everything we raise to a ministry outside of our church walls
