“Groundbreaking Ceremony, May 21st!”
April 18, 2023
If you were at church this past Sunday or at the packed Easter Service, then you already know we are having the Groundbreaking Ceremony for our new building on Sunday, May 21st at 4 pm! Yes, that’s right, Groundbreaking Ceremony on Sunday, May 21st at 4 pm on our Ashley Ridge Church property, right next to Ashley Ridge High School! For those of you (like me) that just want to see it one more time:
“Groundbreaking Ceremony on Sunday, May 21st at 4 pm!”
You will be receiving more information about this momentous occasion from Pastor Jenn & James very soon! And, please put this on your calendar today! You can say you were there and remember when Pastor Jenn (with appropriate hard hat & teal shovel) put the first dig in the ground!
Building Project News: The permitting process is ongoing, but we should have what we need to begin site work sometime in June. Meanwhile, Equip Studio is diving into the construction documents, and our financial team has been working diligently with the local bank, providing them with the information and financial documents needed for activating our construction loan.
Our biggest current need is to replenish the building fund as we head into site work this summer. While the Construction Loan will be our main source of financing for the project, it will not cover everything, nor do we want to finance that large of an amount. The more we raise internally the less we have to borrow and pay interest on (and the more we will have to support our future ministry)!
I think this is a good time to say “thank you” for all your continued financial support, commitment and dedication to getting us to this point. There have been a lot of prayers for this new building, and it has sustained us through all the difficulties and challenges we have faced thus far.
If you would like to help replenish the Building Fund in preparation for site work to begin, you can do so here.
