God was with us at the Zoning Board of Appeals where we received everything we requested in our variance from the County. The vote in our favor was unanimous! We were particularly grateful since several requests before ours were turned down.
The Building Committee is working with Santee Cooper to get the transformer relocation project moving. Kent Ballard has been working with our Architect to develop Elevation drawings for the Unite Center.
Built Together Pledge Drive and Financial Update:
Loan packages have been submitted to three local banks to support the financial needs of construction during the three-year period of pledge fulfillment. Please pray for God's will to be carried out as the banks review our applications!
pledge fulfillment process has begun and we are receiving funds on a regular basis from those who pledged. Don't forget that it is NOT TOO LATE to join us in this great adventure - you may pledge at any time by filling out a pledge card (at the Information Desk in the Connect Center) and depositing it in the pledge box by the Unite Center display in the lobby.
A special note on financial need:
During the detailed building design and engineering process we have discovered several areas where additional funds will be needed beyond the original estimate. We remain committed to keeping the cost of the Unite Center at a level that we can support with our pledges over three years. If you have not yet pledged please ask God for His guidance. If you will help we need to know now so that our detailed plans and design accurately reflect our financial commitment to the Unite Center. Thank you SO MUCH for your partnership!!
