Dear Faith Family,

As I write this letter I am filled with unspeakable joy and excitement!  I am overwhelmed by God's faithfulness and your continued commitment and generosity to support the mission and work of FLC. Since we started the Mortgage Reduction Campaign we have been able to substantially reduce the mortgage.  We currently owe $77,272 and we would like to retire this debt by the end of September…which brings me to share great news! I am pleased to share one of our congregation members has offered a generous challenge gift: for every dollar given or pledged to the mortgage payoff campaign, up to $50,000, they will match it, dollar-to-dollar! This matching gift opportunity will move us forward.  We ask you to join us in this effort to glorify God for our many blessings and also to continue to be of service to our community.

Paying off our mortgage is the first step to our bright future, not the end, and I would like to take this opportunity to share with you what is next: 

• We need to connect to the city sewer.

• Our current facility is not designed to meet all of our needs to effectively reach the town of Castle Rock.  If we want to reach young families, it is imperative to create a space for our children and youth.  When young families visit churches, their primary concern is what the church has to offer their children, which means we must consider creating a robust space for our children and youth ministry. 

• Create additional classrooms for our Sunday School Ministry and small groups which will also enable us to expand and reach our community through the preschool program. 

• We need storage space. The lack of space has forced us to rent a storage unit off-site.  

• Altar guild ministry would like a sacristy closer to the sanctuary.  

• Bring in a staff member to pastor to Young Adults.                         

 As you can see, paying off the mortgage is only the first step.  We have a lot of exciting work ahead of us! Will you join us in moving forward with the power of God?  If you can make a gift to assist us in paying the mortgage off, please mail your check to us or drop it in the offering plate on Saturday or Sunday. We will keep you up to date on our progress toward our goal.

 Thank you again for your support of our church. We are glad you are a part of our church family.

 In Christ,

   Pastor Ebassa Berhanu
