Preparing for our Second Capital Campaign to Fund this Project

We are preparing for a great day of celebration and commitment on Sunday, February 28, 2021. We will have one worship service beginning at 10:45 a.m. in the Family Life Center.

  • Bishop Lawson Bryan, our resident bishop, will be here to help us consecrate this space for God's service and to preach at our "grand opening."
  • Rev. Craig Hutto, our district superintendent, will be here to participate in the consecration of the building and to participate in worship.
  • The service will culminate with a time of financial commitment for the second, three-year capital funds campaign to help underwrite the costs of teh project. Our total debt will be approximately $2.155 million.
  • Commitments and Contributions to the Great Tradition-Greater Future 2.0 campaign will be received at any time.

The Spiritual Journey toward Commitment Sunday

A prayer guide has been prepared for the twenty-one days leading to Commitment Sunday.

Preaching themes have been developed for this month based on our goal of listening for God's leadership in how each of us should respond to this opportunity to invest in God's work in this new space.
