A note from Capital Campaign Co-Chairs, Sofia Ali and Dan Berg, in this week’s newsletter:
Join us this Sunday, Oct. 15, as we wrap up our Capital Campaign!
Volunteers have connected with hundreds of members over the last year and we have millions of dollars pledged thus far.
These numbers are impressive, no doubt, but the real story is in the connections that have been made, the ideas that have been brought forth, the feeling that we are all part of something greater than ourselves.
Our campaign slogan challenges us as a faith community to think beyond our own needs. How can our building continue to be a place where those working for justice can meet? How do we offer shelter and assistance to people in transition? Having flexible spaces to gather will offer new opportunities to partner with allied organizations. There will be changes that enhance the worship experience, improve accessibility, provide more Religious Education spaces, and help us use our building in more efficient and creative ways.
So please join us on Sunday; it is going to be a celebration! Minister Emerita Rev. Kate Tucker is preaching, Ann Reed and Give Get Sistet will lead us in song, and there will be special treats from Breaking Bread Café and Ten Thousand Cakes after the services. We will announce our pledges to date, and pass the baton to those who will lead the exciting next phase, truly building our inclusive future.
By the way, it’s not too late to make your pledge! The total announced on Sunday will grow with new gifts this week and in the months ahead. So please bring any stray pledge cards on Sunday!
We’re looking forward to the next phase of the project. There will be congregational meetings with the architects, planning discussions, and frequent progress reports in the months ahead.
THANK YOU! Your wonderful generosity has made this future possible. We can’t wait to see our shared dreams become a reality over the next few years. Together, within and beyond our walls, we will give, receive and grow.
