Progress on New South Addition
Constrution plows along
On Sunday, June 5th, we celebrated Pentecost and the groundbreaking for the South Addition, complete with hard hats and shovels. The construction process is well under way!
Gather and Grow New South Addition Building Campaign
The Gather and Grow Committee is asking church members and friends to prayerfully consider supporting the New South Addition Plan developed with the guidance of the Building Committee by returning pledge cards or donations (select Gather and Grow from drop-down menu). The Gather and Grow Capital Campaign Team and the Building Improvement Committee are excited to have broken ground on Sunday, June 5th. We look forward as a church community to this exciting new chapter as our building project gets underway.
Several fundraising events have been organized including:
- Eat Out at La Carreta Mexican Restaurant in Seward on August 8th and 15% of each dine-in and carry out sale will be donated.
- Finally, we are excited to announce the ‘Gather and Grow Gala‘ on September 22nd at Junto Winery. More information will be coming soon concerning purchasing tables (July Special $900) or individual tickets ($100).
Check our Facebook page, Gather and Grow Capital Campaign page and the weekly newsletter (available via email) for continued updates on the progress of the project and more opportunities to continue to financially support our expansion.
