Top 5 Designated Giving Needs UPDATE
We are so thankful for your continued faithfulness and generosity pictured in the graph above. Your faithfulness allows us to continue moving the mission forward, sharing the gospel through everything we do. The infographic above represent areas your giving, over and above tithe, can make an additional difference.
- CMC Mortgage: We owe $1.1 Million on the CMC loan. The CMC has proven to be a valuable bridge to our community. It has been an avenue to reach new people and bring them into our family through pickle-ball, archery, basketball, Warner events, and much more. Our monthly obligation to the mortgage is roughly $7000. Your monthly commitment of $25, $50, $100 or more will help us meet this need. Our goal is to pay off this mortgage as rapidly as possible, therefore, larger gifts of $5,000, $10,000, $50,000 or more can be directly applied to the principle on the loan.
- CMC Kitchen: Soon you will see a difference in our CMC Kitchen space. The items have been ordered and will be delivered early in May. This will allow us to be more efficient plus have additional space. Thank you.
- Driveway Pavement: This may be the least attractive item on the list. But you have likely noticed the potholes and damage to our drive. We wish to resurface the east drive past all three facilities and the drop off in front of the sanctuary.
- Basketball and Sports Equipment: Sport is the bridge to reach the next generation. We have formed several partnerships to reach the community through sports, including Bok Academy, Candle Light Academy, and Warner University. I am very excited about a new partnership with FCA Sport. We will be launching sports clinics and leagues for kids and youth in partnership with FCA this summer. But we need to equip the gym. Our entry level investment in gym equipment is $15,000, to fully equip the sports functionality we need roughly $30,000.
- Sanctuary Sound: We utilize our sanctuary in so many ways including worship, brown bag hymn sings, concerts, and so much more. The reality is, our essential sound system is over 30 years old. Though we are operational we need to make improvements.
