More Than Bricks Update
More Than Bricks (MTB) kicked off in December 2014 as a major funding campaign for our new Ministry Center, with a goal of $500,000. 80% of the money received ($400,000) is being used to reduce our mortgage debt and related expenses, and 20% ($100,000) is being used to support mission work in North Dakota, St. Lucia and Nepal.
Here is where we stand in the final month of the 3 year campaign:
Donations Received in November $8,701
Total Received through November $426,211 (85% of goal)
Amounts designated to missions in North Dakota: $34,097, St. Lucia $34,097, Nepal $17,048
Due to the generosity of our members and attenders, we have surpassed our MTB pledge amount for the campaign. What an incredible blessing!
We have been presented with a challenge to reach $450,000 by year end, where a generous donor is willing to match up to $10,000 of additional MTB giving, above any current regular giving. If we can achieve this goal, we will be able to pay down most of the Condo Parsonage in 16 months and have funds set aside for parking lot completion and possible expansion.
We ask that you pray about this opportunity, and if you are so moved and able to make an additional MTB contribution, please do so by the end of the year.
