October 23 Building Update 064
“Move the Chains!”
Hope everyone is enjoying the football season so far because we’ve got a real nail- biter on our hands right here at Ashley Ridge Church! I sense this one is going right down to the wire and the last play!
We are into the fourth quarter and time is starting to become a critical factor in our ability to raise $100K for the Building Fund and make comparables (comps) in 2021. BUT, with the clock ticking, AR just made a big 1st down this week with the Pre-construction Push & Comp Countdown, so “Move the Chains!”
Coach Jenn and Offensive Coordinator Reuber have a sound “back to basics” game plan for the rest of the year. Keep the ball on the ground (no fumbles) and grind-out yardage towards the goal line. AR has a tough offensive line, opening up holes and wearing down the defense. Go team go!!!
I will send-out another Special Edition ***Results Update ALERT*** on Monday with the complete “stats” for the previous week but wanted to give you the latest giving totals as of October 21st @ 7:57 am from Assistant Coach Reuber.
Pre-construction Push: $14,665
Comp Countdown: $548,514
General Fund (MTD): $32,810
OK, AR team, let’s stay healthy and remember, we are making hard-fought gains toward our goal of a permanent home base but still have a ways to march down the field. SO, let’s keep chewing-up that yardage, getting those 1st downs and remember the old phrase; “it ain’t over till it’s over!”
NOTE: American baseball legend Yogi Berra first uttered the phrase about baseball’s 1973 National League pennant race. His team was a long way behind when he said it and they did eventually rally to win the division title.
“All the way to $100K!!!
