Capital Campaign Kickoff Excitement
The Renewing Our Shepherd Capital Campaign will be introduced to the congregation at the Kickoff Event at 7pm on Sunday, July 21. The purpose of this event is to present a more thorough overview of our projects and campaign. Plan to come to the kickoff event. You will hear some great information, and you will enjoy the dessert buffet with coffee and water. There will be a staffed nursery during this event so that parents with young children will find welcome at the event.
Behind the scenes there has been considerable work to get us to this point of introduction. A cabinet team of key leaders coordinating several committees has met several times. Recruitment of volunteers for the campaign are being recruited so that we can accomplish visiting every household.
David Priskorn and the Board of Resources have worked throughout this process to ensure that all the projects will be effective use of our resources. Just today, I learned that on Monday, July 22, we should receive some preliminary drawings from an architect we have engaged to make sure some of our dreams are possible. We will receive concept drawings for reworking at the school and church entrances, newly expanded/arranged offices and classrooms, and parking. The architect has shared that Christ Church Cranbrook is essentially working on many of the same things we are starting, with essentially the same foci, and at the same time. It is an exciting time for our congregation as we look to renew our facilities.
This time of renewal is not only about fresh coats of paint. Through this campaign we will provide the necessary resources to our buildings so that they are not an obstacle or distraction from our mission to gather, nurture, and serve because Jesus loves.
