Dear Faith Lutheran community, Thank you, Thank you for all of your support of our campus projects at Rally Day! We can’t say it enough: Your generosity and continual support for our ministries is a blessing that enriches us all.
As you have no doubt noticed, our landscaping project is in its final stages. Because of your help with funding infrastructure and plants for the project, we hope to complete that work by Reformation Sunday. We are a few thousand dollars short of funds to cover all of our current costs on this project. So, if you are able to donate additional funds or to complete your earlier financial pledges that were made in 2020 to our Stewardship Campaign, we welcome that support though the church office, via the FLC web site, or in our Sunday offering plate!
Our nursery and ADA-compliant bathroom project in Room 1 is just about ready to start. Unfortunately, we can’t move on that project until we have the funds to pay for the work. Bill Troudy, our designer and contractor, is a great person to take on this project, and will work around our nursery and outside group needs over the next two months to get this project done. So far, we have firm commitments of $6500 toward this project. We need about another $23,000 to get started and pay for this work. If you are able to help with this undertaking at any financial level we would appreciate your support. We have received one $5000 commitment already and are seeking three more gifts at this level to allow us to start the work! The many children we are now ministering to in Sunday School and the half dozen outside groups that use our facility weekly will benefit immediately from your support.
With the completion of these two projects this fall, we will have accomplished the lion’s share of the needed maintenance and improvement work on the church campus. There’s more to come, but we prayerfully ask that you help us close out 2023 with a bang and welcome our growing congregation to our refreshed and improved facility. As always, please only give to these capital campaign projects if you are also able to maintain your current giving to the general fund. The general fund is how we pay our staff who facilitate the great ministry of Faith Lutheran.
Give either of us a call if you’d like more information or if we can help you in your decision to support this work!
Joel Zimbelman and Tod Kimmelshue, Stewardship Committee Co-Chairs.
