LETTER TO CONGREGATION ABOUT RELOCATION
In life there are some moments that occur that reshape your entire life! A few weeks ago our church was contacted about the possibility of taking the biggest step of our young life. We were asked to consider the possibility of purchasing a historic church facility that is located one mile away from us. The first time I entered the church I immediately felt the peace of God in my heart, so I proceeded to ask our leadership team to make a site visit. They unanimously felt the same feeling that this was an opportunity we could not pass up. We all acknowledged that it would take each one of us making very strategic decisions in our lives. We all realized this was the open door God had placed before us! Our current rented facility lease expires very soon which was another affirmation that we needed to pursue this building complex. It is the current home of First Baptist Church of Norcross. Today, I call on our church family to prepare for the future by acting sacrificially and strategically. The total cost for the facility is $2.775 million which means we need to take action to commit resources to insure the immediate acquisition of this fabulous property.
I am joined by the entire staff and leadership team (Russ Chandler, Charlie Germany, Rudy Neal, Bill Mumpower, Brian Brown, Wayne Paul, Brett North, John Sullivan) in calling on our church family to make this matter an immediate point of prayer and action. We are asking every person or family to make a sacrificial one time gift to be received on Sunday, July 14, in order to affirm our faith that our future is brighter than ever. We are also asking each person or family to make a monthly commitment for the next 36 months. Can we do this? Yes indeed! Will we do this? Yes we will! Our church has recently celebrated seven years of ministry and through those years I’ve never asked you to do what I’m asking today! Will you make the most sacrificial gift of your life? Will you join me in giving above your regular tithes and offerings on a monthly basis for the next 3 years? Our future is so bright! I’m so excited that it’s hard to put into words!
In His Hands,
