2017-2020 Capital Campaign

CAMPAIGN GOAL: $530,000.00

On Sunday, April 30, 2017 our church embarked upon a 3-year capital campaign with the goal of raising $530,000.00. The Bible reads in 1 Peter 2:5 MSG, "Present yourselves as building stones for the construction of a sanctuary vibrant with life, in which you'll serve as holy priests offering Christ-approved lives up to God." From this passage the theme: "Building Our Future" has been adopted. It is our earnest belief that out of this glorious endeavor, God will Build our faith, Build our church, Build our ministry outreach while Building a bright future for generations to come. We look forward to your participation.
