On November 11&12, 2017 we had our pledge weekend for the generosity campaign, PREVAIL. Just a few weeks later, the giving phase began and on December 3&4 we entered into that two-year phase. I am pleased to announce the following:
Total Pledged: $502,562
Total Received To Date: $161,318
% of Pledge Received To Date: 32.09%
% of Pledge Expected to Date: 33%
Thank you so much for your faithfulness in giving to the PREVAIL Campaign. We are right on track in our giving and that is very exciting. Some of you have actually jumped ahead in your commitment and to you we say a special thank you as that has certainly helped put us in a strong cash position. If by chance you’ve fallen behind, that is okay! We appreciate you and you have plenty of time to catch up.
There is not a lot to update on the progress with the city, financing, lawyers, etc., but I can tell you that we are close to hopefully announcing something exciting. Just the other day Pastor Ruben and myself met with the builder and there is a hopeful confidence that things could be moving soon. Please stay tuned, watch your email and be at church as we hope to have an update in the next few weeks.
Also, I want to invite you to come to the Prayer Walk on August 19th at 5pm. As you may expect, there are a lot of moving parts and all of them require a great deal of prayer. We are going to meet on the property, spend time praying, walking and blessing the Land that God has so graciously given us and then we will eat together. If you haven’t attended one of these prayer walks in the past, please make this a priority on Sunday. Please join us in praying for the following:
- Please pray for financing.
- Continue to pray for the development process with the city.
- Pray that we can find cost savings in this project whether it be through donations, gifts, etc.
Thanks again for your faithfulness in giving.
