Arising & Building
tithed to mission
remaining to give
as of 5/1/16
Paying off our debt was only the beginning! See the future take shape with ministry, mission and important infrastructure updates throughout the summer as part of our continuing capital campaign.
Roof repairs begin this summer! You'll see crews working on multiple buildings as we make much needed repairs in the next few months.
We've begun the process of renovating Student Ministry. We've contracted an architect to begin sketching plans to renovate the 3rd floor of Allen Yowell Hall. Plans include a multi-purpose gathering area, updated technology and AV resources, and welcoming spaces for small groups and study.
Mission giving. We have distributed $217,000 in mission tithes so far in the campaign, most recently to Nehemiah Project, and to help build a seminary in Madagascar.
Church planting is underway. Our Session has approved $478,000 in ARISE AND BUILD funds for church planting, as planned. $428,000 of that distribution will go to support two new church planting partners in West Palm Beach, Florida and Edinburgh, Scotland. $25,000 will go to Redeemer Presbyterian's City-to-City Program to train and support the church planters, and $25,000 will go to our denominational family, the EPC for church planting efforts.
