Getting Ready For the First Year in our New Building!
Everyday we see more progress in our new building as the construction company prepares to hand us the keys to the building and leave. Erik, Heather and Matt have moved their offices from the old building to the new one and the teachers are hard at work, getting their rooms set up.
We've saved thousands of dollars by purchasing plenty of items from an auction company in Omaha. Just last week we had a 24 foot U-haul full of teacher desks, office chairs, storage carts and vertical file cabinets. The entire contents cost less than $2,000, which has allowed us to purchase the new items we really want, like the furnishings in our learning commons areas, which you see in the picture above.
A Financial Report from Erik Borgmeyer
Our July tithes and offerings came in about $7,500 less than our budgeted need, but due to reduced spending during this month, we actually finished July about $30,000 under budget! We continue to make the most with the dollars you commit to the ministries here at Messiah.
Our Forward in Faith campaign has received almost $47,000 in July. We thank everyone for their contributions to this campaign and hope you soon can tour the building and enjoy seeing hwo that money has been spent.
