Finishing Forward

What an amazing time the last year has been. It’s hard to imagine but we are within one month of being in our new Worship Center for a full year. We have much to celebrate and much to be thankful for.

For example, our worship attendance and Bible Study attendance are up significantly. Specifically, our Connect Groups are averaging 22o more people the first five weeks of this year than last year. Our budget giving is up 22% over our giving last January and our worship attendance is up 16 percent.

There is one area still outstanding.

Our Forward! Capital Giving Campaign is still not complete. Two years ago, we pledged to give $4,503,934.00 to complete the building. To date with 10 months remaining we have given $2,804,859.46.

Finishing Forward! strong will put us where we need to be with our building. We still have time to do this. If we all do our part we can hit 100 percent of our goal for the Forward! Campaign.

Would you look at your pledge and commit to finish strong this year? I have every expectation that we will do so.

Thank you for your faithfulness to finish this amazing project.
