Capital Campaign announcement
The  INVESTING  in the Future fund raising campaign is here!

Our campaign goal is $400,000 supporting five projects, and we have already raised nearly $56,000 toward our goal! 

We introduced this three year campaign on Sunday, June 5th during Sunday worship.  We then talked with many of you about the details surrounding the campaign through a series of campaign, in home parish meetings.

We hope that you will prayerfully consider how you may support and impact the
INVESTING  in the Future campaign. You are asked to return your pledge form by the last Sunday in September.

v You may review the projects being supported in this campaign by viewing our campaign brochure.

v To make a gift of any size to INVESTING  in the Future, please print & complete the attached campaign pledge form.

To date, our campaign has generated more than $5,000 in new Missions support AND installed a state-of-the-art sound system in our sanctuary. As part of the sound system we have six sound assist tokens that allow hearing-impaired attendees to hear everything that is said during worship.

*    In the coming weeks, the stained glass window on the east wall closest to the elevator will be removed for refurbishment.

*    A campaign banner will be placed over the boarded-up window as a reminder that refurbishing our stained glass windows makes up about 65% of the monies being raised.

*      Additionally, you will see small campaign banner displayed in the sanctuary that will track our progress toward our goal.

If you have any questions about the  INVESTING  in the Future campaign, please feel free to contact Randall Ackerman at rackerman@psu.edu or at (240) 527-5515.
