Dear Pilgrim Rest Family,
Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ! The Finance Ministry of the church wanted to share an update on our Capital Campaign. We praise and thank God that we are in our 36th month of the initial campaign. When we started this faith journey in March 2015, the goal was to accomplish four tasks:
1. To complete renovations on our new Church Campus to fit our specific needs.
2. To support the new and growing ministries of the church.
3. To pay the mortgage of the new Church Campus.
4. To replenish the assets used to support our transition from Sherman Boulevard.
We thank each person that has contributed, but there is still work to do. We have seen God’s hand at work as we have had members young and old to support the vision and forward movement of the church.
Our initial request was for each adult member to complete a pledge of $3107, which would allow us to complete the work that we feel God has led us to do. All contributions, large or small, are welcomed and needed. We continue to solicit those who have yet to do so as well as those that have already completed their pledges.
We pray with a spirit of expectation that the members of the Pilgrim Rest Missionary Baptist Church will continue to support the forward movement and build on the proud legacy of our church in this community, this city and this world.
Please see a member of the Capital Campaign Finance Team or call the Church Office with any questions.
