Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,

November 8, 2016

This is the first of what I hope to be many letters to you from the pastor. I am firmly convinced the church should be ever moving forward for the kingdom of God. To that end, allow me to announce some very exciting news on behalf of your Church Council.

It is with firm conviction and by stepping out in faith that the Council and I wish to once again begin moving forward with the Strategic Building Plan which originally was approved by you the church on October 7th, 2012. Thus, at our Council meeting last week on Tuesday, November 1st, we voted unanimously to:

- reinstate both the Capital Campaign and Building Committees.
- begin the process of reviewing and implementing the Strategic Building Plan,
Phases 2 (remodeling Education wing) and 3 (remodeling the greeting area,
bathrooms and kitchenette on 1st floor).
- provide $7,500.00 of seed money to retain an architect to assist us.
Will you please pray for the work of these two committees and for the guidance
of the Holy Spirit as we move forward with God’s kingdom work. I will update you more
as the process begins to spring into motion. It is our intention to start in earnest in the
1st quarter of 2017.

Ever in His Service,
Bro Don
