FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


 

Q: Can we wait and do this later?

A: First, our kids and students deserve the best, and good facilities offer the best chance to reach and disciple the next generation.

Second, our facilities are not being leveraged to their greatest capacity for ministry. By finishing our south end build-out, we can maximize our space to accommodate our growing children's and student ministries.

Third, the south end of our building is in need of major maintenance. It would not be wise or good stewardship to continue to simply repair and delay the inevitable.

Fourth, now is not the time to pull back when so many people in our community are backing away from the church. We need to finish. If not us, then who?

Q: Can we do it cheaper than $4M?

A: No. This is the best number to help us finish our build-out in a way that is both inviting and functional for the work of ministry, while also practicing good financial stewardship without sacrificing quality.

Q: What is the difference between an initial gift and a 2-year pledge?

A: Initial gifts are one-time gifts that are meant to be given in addition to your 2-year pledge. Initial gifts are due by March 29, 2020, and should be labeled with the fund designation: “One to the Next Initial Gift.” 

Pledges are meant to be given in addition to your initial gift. Once you prayerfully consider the total amount you would like to pledge, you can pledge that total using our online pledge form or Giving Commitment Card. In addition to your total pledge amount, you will also select whether you plan to pay weekly, monthly, annually, or as a one-time payment towards your total pledge amount over the course of the next two years. Pledge submissions are due by March 29, 2020. Contributions towards your pledge total should be labeled with the fund designation: “One to the Next Pledge,” and should be paid over the course of the next two years. Pledge statements will be provided in order to help you keep track of where you are in contributing to your pledge total.

Q: When I submit my pledge, am I submitting the total 2-year amount, or a per-payment amount?

A: When you submit your 2-year pledge—either through the online pledge form or through a Giving Commitment Card—the amount you submit should be the total amount that you plan to give over the next two years.

Q: How do I figure a pledge amount “equal to half my annual tithe, given over the next two years”?

A: Below is an example of figuring out what half your annual tithe might be (using $4,000 as the annual tithe), but please prayerfully consider if you are able to give over and above half your annual tithe. 

EXAMPLE$4,000 (annual tithe) ÷ 2 (half)$2,000 to be pledged and paid over the course of two years

Q: Will the chairs in the Multi-Purpose Room be moveable?

A: Yes. The chairs will be moveable in order to allow for multiple configurations and maximum flexibility within the space, including setting up tables for banquets or meetings.

Q: Will there be security around the play structure?

A: The play structure that we are looking at has a single point of entry and exit, with strong mesh netting surrounding the structure for safety and easy visibility. Outside of ministry time, parents are expected to keep an eye on their children while they are inside the play area.
