1 Chronicles 29:14-18

“But who am I, and who are my people, that we should be able to give as generously as this? Everything comes from you, and we have given you only what comes from your hand. We are foreigners and strangers in your sight, as were all our ancestors. Our days on earth are like a shadow, without hope. Lord our God, all this abundance that we have provided for building you a temple for your Holy Name comes from your hand, and all of it belongs to you. I know, my God, that you test the heart and are pleased with integrity. All these things I have given willingly and with honest intent. And now I have seen with joy how willingly your people who are here have given to you. Lord, the God of our fathers Abraham, Isaac and Israel, keep these desires and thoughts in the hearts of your people forever, and keep their hearts loyal to you.

OUR CHURCH ROOF

The sanctuary was built in 1984, and the current roof is the original, which makes the shingles about 37 years old.

 

Over the past year, we have had to deal with damage resulting from leaks in the roof over our sanctuary. In the course of repairs and evaluation, it has become clear that it is time to acknowledge the reality – the building is in need of a new roof.

 
Our goal is to raise the projected funds by July 31, 2021 -which gives us 20 weeks to meet our goal.

Dear Four Mile and Friends,

 

Hopefully, you have seen some of the incredible ways God is both blessing and using us as a church community – even in the midst of a pandemic!

 

Even though the way we do ministry and discipleship has changed dramatically over the past 12 months and likely will continue to change as things settle into new patterns for life and work – we still seek to make maximum use of our facilities.

 

That means their upkeep and maintenance remain a priority. That is why starting in March 2021 we are kicking off a financial campaign to raise approximately $60,000. Over the past year, we have had to deal with damage resulting from leaks in the roof over our sanctuary. In the course of repairs and evaluation, it has become clear that it is time to acknowledge the reality – the building is in need of a new roof. 

 

So – as we did with the old boiler with the ‘turn up the heat’ campaign we are seeking to do again with a ‘raise the roof campaign.’ We want our church to come together and with sacrificial giving above and beyond normal giving raise the funds necessary to cover the cost of putting a new roof over our heads. 

 

We are asking everyone to prayerfully consider your part and to complete the commitment form by Sunday, March 14th. If we all sacrifice together we believe we will meet the challenge and get the job done and be set for another 30-year run. 

 

Sincerely,

Elders, finance and building and grounds teams
