A Capital Campaign (seeking funds to pay for the repairs and expansion of the parking lot) is just getting underway. Tom Surgalski, Chair of the campaign, will speak to the congregation about this fund-raising effort at both services Sunday, July 29th.
The goal is to raise $150,000 in twelve months. Titled “Paving the Way to the Future,” this drive is clearly about raising money, but we believe the parking lot work speaks to something bigger. It’s a commitment to “paving the way” to the future of Calvin Church.
We don’t have the ability to see the future, but we believe
God is leading Calvin Church into a new season of mission and ministry.
The church parking lot is more than just a place to put your vehicle. This space…
Provides First Impressions–Our lot is the first impression people get when they visit. We want members and guests to know they’re in a safe environment.
Offers Hospitality–Calvin Church wants to be a good host to members and guests. The parking lot is one way we can show our hospitality.
Supports Ministry–Worshippers, prayer groups, committees, outside groups all depend on Calvin’s building and grounds including use of the parking areas.
Points Toward the Future–In order for Calvin Church to grow, there needs to be enough space for people to park. The new lot is one way we’re paving the way to the future.
Members will be receiving brochures and other printed information about the campaign in the very near future. A page dedicated to the capital campaign will be on the church website in the next few weeks. Ways to contribute will be publicized in various media.
We’re rolling out this drive slowly recognizing Summertime sees many folks away from church and church communications. A lot more information will be available in weeks to come.
If you want to make a contribution right now, send your check to the church office with “Capital Campaign” in the memo area. You may also go the online donation page of the church website.
We don’t have the ability to see the future, but we believe God is leading Calvin Church into a new season of mission and ministry. You’re invited to join us for the journey.
