9/24/23 - building fund offering ... $18,606.23! Praise the Lord! And thank you to all who generously gave! 12/19/23 - estate donation ... due to God's miraculous provision through a donation from an estate, our building fund running total just passed $350,000!
What we are praying for: - Partners. We have the possibility of working with a church-help organization that is considering helping us with construction next summer. Please pray that God would lead both them and us as to what will best accomplish His will. - Wisdom. There will be many decisions to be made as we start planning for the new church building. We are closing in on our goal of a 50% down payment on the construction costs, so we are beginning to work on more concrete plans. - Finances. Thank the Lord, we were able to purchase the land with cash! However, now we will be continuing to raise money for the building. God has already shown His generosity and supernatural orchestration of events in this process, and we are confident that He will continue to do so! - Lord willing, we are about a year from breaking ground! We are considering some plans and have begun talking with the building department!
Below are pictures of the new property as well as a rendering of the new building:
