Capital Campaign Launch!

The 2020 Vision Capital Campaign officially kicks off October 22, 2017 with a presentation after the 11:15 worship service.  Our goal is to raise two million dollars by 2020.  Elements of the campaign include renovation of our building and grounds, retirement of church debt, and assistance with affordable housing for our needy neighbors. Read this letter from Henry for more details. Pledges and donations are separate from the annual stewardship campaign.  Early pledges are welcome now, and all pledges will be taken through December 2017.  Donation period will be January 2018 to December 2020.  You can fill out this online pledge form if you are ready to pledge now.  Contact Dennis Carlton (carltonfpc@gmail.com) or Brad Pontz (bradpontz@gmail.com) with any questions, and plan attend the October 22 meeting for all the details!
