Welcome Back to School!

Tuesday marked our first day of school in our brand new building.  We can't begin to tell you how excited the children, parents and teachers were!  Our investment into Christian education will be one that lasts generations and reaches around the world, as we train up our children in the Word of God.

A Financial Report from Erik Borgmeyer

Our Tithes and Offerings are $24,000 over budget after 3 weeks of August.  We have received over $114,000 so far this month.  We've also been blessed with over $94,000 in donations to our Forward in Faith campaign.  Those are some great positives to celebrate!

The reality of being in a new building is also very evident, as we borrowed another $1,000,000 this week.  Unlike when you take out a mortgage for a new house, we were not required to borrow the full amount all at one time.  We now have borrowed a total of 5.5 million dollars, but believe we can get this number down if we receive the remaining amount that has been pledged to our Forward in Faith campaign. 

We do have a total of 84 pledges to our campaign that have given 50% or less of their pledge.  25 pledges have not been able to give anything, and that accounts for over $150,000 in pledges.  We do encourage you to fulfill your pledges if at all possible to avoid us having to borrow even more money.   We also celebrate the fact that we've received over $110,000 toward this campaign in donations that were not pledged, but came as gifts after the campaign had started.
