Matthew 7:7 says,
“Ask and it will be given to you;
seek and you will find;
knock and the door will be opened to you.”
Campaign Kick-Off Weekend
September 24 & 25
Our Kick-Off timeline of our Capital Campaign in conjunction with the Diocesan-wide campaign is the weekend of September 24 & 25 and run until December 15, 2016 to gather enough pledges over a five year plan to meet our goal of $2.5 million. This is ONE campaign with two distinct goals: Goal one is to raise 2 million for our building project and Goal two is to raise around 470 thousand for the Diocese of Lansing campaign for a total Campaign of 2.5 million dollars. Your pledge total (over 3 or 5 years) goes to support both of these campaigns and anything over that goal all comes back to us too!
This will be a very prayerful campaign so that it is not what we will achieve but what God will achieve through us. We are not seeking to build an office building, a grocery store, or a bakery. We are seeking to build another room in God’s house. We are seeking to build His Kingdom. A place where God’s grace will bring evangelization, catechesis, and service. A place of discipleship and where all are welcomed.
So I am asking that we pray from our hearts in what our pledges may be to make this campaign a success by asking God for His blessing on this campaign, to seek His wisdom in conducting a successful campaign, and to knock on each other’s doors so that each of us may participate, to the best of their ability, in this worthy mission.
