The last newsletter article from our committee focused on explanation of the Fundraising Campaign.  That, along with the banquet, gave our congregation the information necessary for the members of Grace Church to participate financially in what and how we believe God is leading.  That, of course, is to accumulate funds so that we can enter into a building construction and renovation to further God’s agenda.  And God has been so good!

The results of our fund raising pledge campaign are in!!  Our pledging began August 18 with the banquet.  Presently, we have 23 respondents to a three-year pledge in contributions.  The total three year amount pledged through September 17 is $150,060.

Since our actual giving began the first Sunday of September, giving to the Building Fund through Sunday, September 17 was $21,557.  Of that, $12,985 was given from pledges and $8,752 from regular love offerings.  As we can see, our folks have contributed well over the expected weekly amount thus far!  Praise God as He continues to bless!!

If you still intend to be a part of this pledge campaign, you can do so at any time by submitting a Pledge Card.  This can be picked up at the back of the church sanctuary and placed in the offering plate on any given Sunday.  It will be kept confidential.  You can also stipulate it through our website on-line giving link. Of course, you can give to the Building Fund at any time without pledging.  Just identify the gift as “Building Fund.”

Thank you to all who are giving as God leads!  We are stronger together!
