ARISE AND BUILD Milestone: We are DEBT FREE!
Just fifteen months ago, our church family began a capital campaign called ARISE AND BUILD. This church-driven vision plan, focused on paying off the remainder of our church's debt and paving the way for future ministry, is inspired by scripture from the book of Nehemiah.
“I told them how the hand of my God had been favorable to me and also about the King’s words which he had spoken to me. Then they said, “Let us arise and build.” So they put their hands to the good work.” — Nehemiah 2:18
Today, we are celebrating and praising God that this good work continues. We are overjoyed to announce that First Pres begins 2016 DEBT FREE! Through the faithful generosity of this church family, we are more than halfway to our campaign goal of $7.7 million.
From these gifts, we have already tithed approximately $400,000 to mission purposes including: Mission Emanuel, Nehemiah Project, Madagascar Initiative and our FOUR12 Student Mentoring Program, among others.
Our Remaining Goals
CAMPUS INFRASTRUCTURE - Roof Repairs, $600,000 & Technology Upgrade, $350,000.
STUDENT MINISTRY SPACE RENOVATION - $650,000.
THE CENTER FOR FAITH AND WORK - $750,000.
