PEACE FOR THE FUTURE
Rooted in Community – Ready to Serve
In the autumn of 2017 we conducted a historic capital fund drive, which we called Peace for the Future. At that same time we also celebrated the 60th anniversary of the founding of our congregation. Thus, we looked both backward, honoring our past, and forward, positioning ourselves to achieve our mission in the future.
After much discussion, featuring input from the congregation, the goals for the campaign were formulated. Read about them on our Mission page.
The total monetary goal for these projects was set at $1.1 million. Members and friends were invited to make a three year commitment to the campaign, in addition to their regular annual giving.
The campaign was a success, though we have not achieved $1.1 million in pledges yet. At the end of 2017 we had received close to 80 pledges totaling nearly $800,000. While the formal fundraising process has been completed, we continue to aspire to our original goal. Have you made a commitment to Peace for the Future? Perhaps you are new to the congregation. The opportunity to pledge will exist for the foreseeable future.
Importantly, we have turned to considering how we will use the funds that have been so generously provided. We have contracted with an architectural firm and are working with them on our vision for improvements to our building. We are considering options for installing solar panels on our roof, and are beginning to look into a piano and an audio visual system for the sanctuary.
Join us in these endeavors. Make your pledge, if you haven’t done so. Become involved in one of the committees that will be working on implementing our goals. Peace for the Future has positioned us well, and we look forward to the years ahead.
