SUNDAY, JUNE 11 is the last chance to make YOUR VOICE heard regarding support for the Building On Our Mission Building Campaign! If you have not turned in your pledge form yet, please DOWNLOAD ONE HERE TO COMPLETE or complete one in the Narthex before leaving on Sunday—regardless of your contribution amount, we want you to turn in a form. Members of the Fundraising Subcommittee will be available to answer questions and collect forms.
On Monday, June 12, the Chair of the Building Committee, Bill Bohning, will be meeting with the Church Council to present them with the response of the congregation to date for the Building On Our Mission Building Campaign, which will include the number of pledges received and the total financial support those pledges represent. Here are those numbers as of Thursday:
- Total informational folders and pledge forms given out – 320
- Total pledge forms returned – 72 (23% of the total given out)
- Total dollars pledged – $326,000 (32% of the one million dollar goal)
Based on the current level of participation and the overall financial support from the congregation as represented in the numbers above, the Building Committee will present the following options for the Church Council to consider acting on:
Option: Move to present the project to the voters at the June 25th Annual Voters Meeting for a vote on moving forward with the project with the current funding raised to date and the additional financing necessary to fill the final cost gap.
Option: Move to postpone a presentation to the voters on moving forward with the project to provide more time for the congregation to provide additional support.
Option: Move to suspend the project and all fundraising efforts and reassess direction.
Please know that your pledge form is essential in helping determine the next course of action. We thank you and encourage any level of commitment to help expand the ministry of Mount Olive Church and School!
