Capital Funds Campaign

 

Current Figures - September 11, 2017

    GOAL: $250,000

    PLEDGES: 61

    AMOUNT PLEDGED: $147,248

    AMOUNT RECEIVED: $139,307

    AMOUNT DISTRIBUTED: $107,362

 

The $250,000 Strengthen His House Capital Campaign officially began on June 1, 2013. It is a three year campaign to encourage church members to give above their operating budget pledge. The campaign focuses on three main areas:

  • Reduce/Pay off the Mortgage - $30,310 PAID TO DATE
  • Replace the Roof - $45,700 PAID TO DATE
  • Renovate Restrooms - $31,352

Your faithfulness to the campaign and to our church deserves special recognition. At $50,000 plateaus of money received, celebrations will be held during Sunday services to give thanks for the gifts. The first was held on July 7, 2013, with piñatas full of candy kisses at both services. On October 12, 2014 we celebrated the second plateau with $100 Grand candy bars. 

 

A campaign board is posted near the office to highlight progress. A penny is added to the board to visually represent each $5000 received. Pledge cards are available on the board or in the office. New pledges will be accepted at any time.

 

Thanks for your support of this campaign.
