Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
We have just completed our celebration of the 125th anniversary of the founding of St. John’s United Church of Christ. During those 125 years this congregation has built an impressive facility that speaks to the peace and glory of God. But it is now time to look to the future and the need to maintain and improve our property and buildings. Therefore, the Board of Trustees plans to undertake a $35,000 capital campaign to insure another 125 years of service to God at St. John’s and we are asking that you support our project with your prayers and donations.
It is our intention to use the money from the capital campaign to first pay off the loan on the Cleveland House then establish accounts for roof replacement and facilities repair and upkeep. The money we get from the rent on the Cleveland House and our other rental property will be used to support the facilities accounts.
A generous lead gift of $5,000 has already been pledged, so that we begin this campaign nearly 15% towards its completion. Your generosity can help us make that 100%! The Trustees will continue requesting donations until we have reached our goal of $35,000.
Yours in Christ,
Dr. Carl Rodegerdts Pete Martin
Chairman Board of Trustees Consistory President
