Building for Today & Tomorrow Mortgage
Phase II/Year 4
One of the privileges of being a Christian is to be able to dedicate what we have to God. We are blessed in so many ways – all we have to do is look around ourselves to see those blessings and ALSO “look up” to see where they've come from.
Many of you are aware of the mortgage for the Jessup Christian Education wing and that we still have approximately $93,000 yet to pay off. In accordance with our plan to work on this current mortgage in phases we are beginning our pledge drive for Phase II/Year 4 this month with a goal of $30,000 to cover one more year's mortgage payments. You are being asked to prayerfully consider an extra donation/pledge for the calendar year of July 2010 to June 2011 at this time to help us keep up with our mortgage payments.
To date we have contributions from many members who pledge to our BT&T mortgage during the regular calendar year from January to December
2010 and they've set the foundation for us. We graciously thank those members for setting such a wonderful example for us AND NOW IT'S OUR TURN. You may make a weekly or monthly pledge or donate one lump sum – whichever you feel God's calling to you. Please fill out the pledge sheet below and return it in the weekly offering or to the church office by June 27, 2010. We thank you in advance for your prayerful consideration in the future of the First Baptist Church of Penn Yan.
With gratitude to God and as an expression of my personal commitment to Jesus Christ and His Church, it is my intention to pledge the following amount toward our
“Building for Today and Tomorrow/Phase II 2010-2011” Fund.
