RAISE THE ROOF
REMEMBER TO FILL OUT YOUR PLEDGE CARD
Our congregation is raising $500,000 to pay for the upgrades and repairs that will be needed over the next five years to keep our campus functional and ready to serve future generations. The good news is that our reserves, designated gifts, and pledges from your current and past church leaders already total $265,000, putting us over halfway to our goal. We still need your help to finish the rest. We’ve got information on the other projects we’re looking forward to finishing over the next few years along with details about how everyone can participate in this campaign. Please see a member of the Raise the Roof team (Leslie Newman, Uli Chi, Larry Bjork, Steve Davolt, Pat Herd, Pastor Jon or Pastor Shari) for more information, answers to your questions, and to provide an opportunity to pledge your support. Please help us RAISE THE ROOF!
