Exciting days as the renovation of 580-586 N. Michigan St. progresses. We’re still anticipating moving in during the month of June and then holding our first worship gathering in July. We’ll keep you posted on the exact date as the work progresses.
If you remember, when we came up with the budget for this project, we estimated it would cost about $400,000 to build out the new space, another $100,000 for the soft costs (such as chairs, sound and video equipment, signage, etc) and $50,000 to go to Converge Mid America to help Kyle and Colleen Gennicks plant Mission church in Montgomery, IL.
The actual cost of the General Contractor is $441,500 and the amount pledged combined with the money promised by the landlord totals $437,000. It’s been very encouraging to see God provide for our needs along the way. Thank you for your continued generosity to both the building campaign and the general fund! This couldn’t happen without each person giving.
One of the soft cost expenses that we don’t have covered is the cost of the chairs for the auditorium. We need 210 chairs and the cost per chair is $50. We would like to ask is if each family unit will consider buying enough chairs for their family? Then will you add 1 more to that number in faith that God will bring more people? For example, in my family we have 4 people Jennifer, Jacob, Maddie and myself that we would buy a chair for, then if we add 1 more that means we would buy 5 chairs for a total of $250.
Would you prayerfully considering buying chairs for your family and others that God will bring? We know some of you may be able to do more than this while others may not be able to do as much. Either way will you pray and ask God what he wants you to do?
To give you can make a donation online here or make your check out to Pathway and mark chairs on the memo line so we can keep track of how much is raised toward this goal of $10,500.
Again thank you for your continued generosity. It’s going to be exciting to see what God is going to do in this new location.
Walking by faith,
The elders (Nathanial Palaci, Bob Picha and Kirt Wiggins)
