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 you 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! Please see a member of the Raise the Roof team – Leslie Newman, Uli Chi, Larry Bjork, Pat Herd, Pastor Jon, or Pastor Shari – for more information, answers to your questions, and to provide an opportunity to pledge your support.
