WHY ARE WE STARTING A CAPITAL CAMPAIGN NOW?
Grace is at a point where anything beyond basic cosmetic changes would require us to meet current building and safety codes. There is more than enough space in our building, but not all of that space is useable, especially because of the inaccessibility of the education building. In order to continue our ministry these building changes are needed. None of these changes will be cheaper or easier to do in the future.
WHEN WILL CONSTRUCTION START?
The capital campaign is scheduled to end in May 2017. If we stay on that schedule we anticipate starting construction in January 2018.
HOW MUCH WILL THE CONSTRUCTION COST?
Current estimates are $1.4 million.
WHY WERE THESE PROJECTS SELECTED?
These are the projects that positively affect the most people. We have additional projects that were considered but have been put in Phase 2 and Phase 3 of the project. The projects in these phases will only be possible after we complete this first phase.
HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR THIS CAMPAIGN?
First and foremost, please pray for this campaign. Ask God how you are to participate. Ask God to give you inspirational ideas for coming up with ways to help. Read scripture. Consider what it means to be a “sacrificial giver”.
WILL I BE REQUIRED TO MAKE A PLEDGE?
No. Participation in this campaign and how much you give will be entirely up to you.
HOW LONG WILL MY COMMITMENT BE?
We are asking you to make a three-year commitment.
I CAN’T GIVE A LARGE AMOUNT, SO DOES MY PLEDGE REALLY MATTER?
Absolutely! All pledges matter, regardless of amount. God multiplies our giving.
FINAL DECISION ON PARTICIPATING?
Pledge cards will be turned in on Commitment Sunday, which is May 21.
WHAT FORMS OF CONTRIBUTIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED?
Contributions can be made by check or cash. Other forms of contributions can include transfer of stock, bonds, etc.
MAY I CHANGE MY COMMITMENT AFTER CELEBRATION SUNDAY?
Of course. Commitments may be updated at anytime.
DO YOU HAVE TO BE A CHURCH MEMBER TO PARTICIPATE IN THE CAMPAIGN?
No. Participating in the campaign is a personal decision and anyone who wishes to see us
fulfill our mission may contribute.
WHO WILL KNOW HOW MUCH I CONTRIBUTE?
This information will only be available to those who need to know it and will be held in the strictest confidence.
