Building Fund Campaign 2017-2018
In the year ahead, our congregation will work together to realize the dream of paying off our mortgage, which will coincide with the 25th anniversary of our congregation in 2018.
As of the end of our current (fully funded!) campaign on May 31, 2017, we will owe just over $160,000 on our current loan. Currently, we have a monthly mortgage of $6,200. At this rate, it will take 26 months to pay off our mortgage.
Our campaign goal is to pay that loan off early – by June 1, 2018.
Why would we pay off our mortgage early?
Our leaders have vision. We’re imagining what we’ll be able to accomplish within our congregation and the wider community once we no longer have a mortgage payment every single month. Create a family-friendly/intergenerational worship space where people of all abilities and ages feel welcome. Sign up for a new online curriculum for Club 456 that would take our kids through the whole Bible in two years. Launch a mid-week worship service. Make our modular more hospitable with new, more comfortable furniture. Establish a new international mission partner. Support an emerging non-profit. Freshen up our website and social media presence to use it as a hub for getting plugged in to our mission and ministry.
We want to continue to be faithful stewards. As our building ages, we want to ensure that we have reserves to maintain our building that receives daily use – not only with because of our many ministries but because we also regularly host a variety of community groups that align with our mission and ministry.
We’re seeking freedom and flexibility. If we didn’t have to make a mortgage payment every single month, what ministries could we take on? What missions might we be able to support? Who might we be able to help?
We would love to have you be a part of realizing this goal of paying off our mortgage. We need donations of all sizes to make this a reality, so your gift will be most welcome.
How you can make a difference:
- Prayerfully consider your giving. Reflect on the ways God is at work in your life and how Heart of the Rockies is changing your life and the lives of those around you. More information on the amount of pledges needed is here.
- Set up an automatic monthly or one time gift here.
- Print a pledge card here and email, mail (Attn: BF Campaign, 6501 Brittany Street, Fort Collins, CO 80525), or bring it to the church office by May 21.
Plan to join us on Sunday, June 4, for one service of worship at 10 a.m. It’s Pentecost Sunday, and we’ll celebrate the “birthday” of Christ’s Church as well as our Building Fund commitments. After worship, we’ll grill the burgers and ask you to bring a side for a potluck meal.
