What is the Capital Campaign goal and

what will be accomplished when we reach that goal?

Our current mortgage is approximately $2.1 million. In order to sustain our monthly mortgage payments, Calvary needs to raise a minimum of $437,184 over the next three years (2018-2020). It is our hope to raise much more in order to greatly reduce the loan principal. The Join the Vision Capital Campaign has a minimum goal of $750,000. We estimate that achieving this goal of $750,000 will reduce our mortgage PRINCIPLE $312,816. Achieving this goal will take years off our mortgage! How many years? That will depend upon how much we raise and how quickly we apply it.
 

A Campaign with Greater Purpose!

     As
many
of
you
know,
Calvary
Lutheran
Church
will
soon
be
embarking
on
the
Join
the
Vision
Capital
Campaign
to
 continue
making
monthly
mortgage
payments
and
reducing
the
principal
on
our
debt.

An
important
aspect
of
this
 effort
involves
volunteers
contacting
all
members
through
a
personal
visit.

The
primary
purpose
of
these
visits
is
to
 deliver
pledge
information
for
the
campaign
and
answer
any
questions.

Another
benefit
is
that
through
this
 process
a
greater
sense
of
community
will
develop.



     How
many
times
have
we
attended
service
and
seen
the
same
faces
each
week,
but
have
not
been
able
to
meet
and
learn
about
one
another?

 The
campaign
will
now
provide
us
an
opportunity!      Soon
you
may
receive
a
phone
call
asking
you
to
become
a
Visitor
for
the
campaign.

Each
Visitor
will
be
asked
to
simply
deliver
sealed
 envelopes,
with
capital
campaign
information,
to
approximately
five
households
of
the
church
on
Sunday,
February
18.
The
following
Sunday,
 February
25,
Visitors
will
return
to
the
same
households
and
pick
up
their
commitment
card
in
a
sealed
security
envelope.

     This
task
should
only
take
about
one
hour
of
your
time
on
each
Sunday.

Visitors
will
be
fully
trained
on
how
to
make
these
contacts
and
the
 best
part
is
you
will
not
have
to
ask
people
for
money!

The
success
of
this
campaign
depends
on
our
ability
to
visit
all
members.

     Finally,
when
the
Visitors
reach
out
to
your
household,
it
is
our
hope
that
you
welcome
these
calls
and
visits
warmly.

This
campaign
will
help
us
 in
reducing
our
debt,
but
also
assist
us
in
growing
closer
as
a
community
by
achieving
a
common
vision.

Thank
you
for
your
interest
and
 consideration
to
volunteer
and
give!

 
We ask that members pray for God’s guidance throughout this process as well as the campaign volunteers and entire Calvary community. This is an important moment in our church’s history and we thank you for your interest!
 
 

The Time Has Come!

This
month
volunteers
will
be
delivering
pledge
information
and
commitment
cards
for
the
Capital
Campaign
 for
mortgage
reduction.

For
those
receiving
visits,
please
welcome
these
volunteers
warmly
and
keep
the
 campaign
and
those
who
are
giving
of
their
time
in
your
prayers.

We
are
asking
members
to
prayerfully
 consider
their
pledge.

As
a
reminder,
all
giving
is
confidential.

Thank
you
for
your
consideration!

 

 Please
pray
for
God’s
guidance
throughout
this
process
as
well
as

volunteers

 moment

history
and
we
thank
you
for
your
interest!
