On Sunday, we made our Commitments to Striking a Match for Burning the Mortgage - Thank you to everyone who has joined in this drive!

On Friday, we shared that our drive had taken an exciting extended step: our donor household, so inspired by the incredible generosity of our congregation, further increased their match offer! Once the mortgage is fully paid off, this household will further match Grace gifts up to $12,000, to go toward the Capital Expense Fund, which provides for the care of our building. As owners, and more importantly, as stewards of this place, we are committed to caring for it faithfully, and the Capital Expense Fund helps make that possible. You can read a special update e-news about this extended gift here.

This gift brought our total challenge gift to $45,000, to pay off the mortgage entirely and to put $24,000 into the Capital Expense Fund, which would immediately cover some long-needed updates in our main bathrooms.

On Sunday, we'll share the total amount committed to Striking a Match for Burning the Mortgage, and what that commitment means for our future as Grace, short and long term!

We hope you'll join us this coming Sunday (at 10am for our 5th Sunday service) as we celebrate the generosity of Grace and the amazing things God is doing here!

We’re excited to see where God will lead us as we pay off this debt and move into our next 100 years as Grace!
