June 25 Building Update 054
“Family Meeting, Part 2”
Are you excited about the Family Meeting, Part 2 this Sunday morning during and after the worship service? I know I am! Pastor Jenn will be bringing you all the “Breaking News” on the building project and more, but first, a quick financial report for your review and information.
Financial Report. The month of June has been slower with the start of the summer season and school vacation. This is not unusual for this time of year, but we are hoping for a big outpouring the last week of the month and could certainly use your assistance in making this happen. The giving numbers below reflect contributions for the month as of June 24th:
$1,335.84 Building Fund + $33,579.78 General Fund = $34,915.62
The Operating Budget for 2021 is $600K or $50K per month, so any amount (margin) over $50K can be used for building related expenses. The 2021 fundraising goal for the building project is $300K. This will get us through the Pre-construction & Permitting Phase.
Family Meeting, Part 2. The Building Executive Team has been in intense discussions and negotiations with the developer, Lennar, for the past several months and has been successful in hammering out an agreement which we feel is mutually beneficial to both parties. The agreement has huge implications for the Ashley Ridge Church building project and for Lennar.
I will not steal Pastor Jenn’s thunder by disclosing the terms of the agreement but will say this, “it’s a really BIG deal!” And, I think you will think so, too!
You just won’t want to miss this exciting event in the life of Ashley Ridge Church! If you can’t be there in-person, you can catch the Family Meeting, Part 2 on-line via the church’s YOUTUBE channel or website.
If you would like to make a contribution to the General Fund or Building Fund, you can do so here.
