Why should I fill out a commitment card if I am already giving to the Building Fund?
First of all, THANK YOU for your generosity and faithful support. Our ability to steward our resources well and work with the our denominational body, The Western Canadian District of the Christian and Missionary Alliance, on additional funding is directly impacted by the commitments we receive. If you believe that God is calling you to continue giving to the building over the next number of years, we graciously ask you to fill out a Commitment Card, even if the numbers don't change, so that we can understand your intentions.
when did reach beyond end?
Reach Beyond was a 3-year capital campaign that began before the fire of December 2016 happened and ended in December 2017.
how does my past giving to the building influence flourish?
While your past giving to Reach Beyond and/or giving between December 2017 and December 2018 still ultimately reaches the building, only money collected after January 1, 2019 is designated as part of the Flourish campaign. The official 3-year fulfilment timeline of Flourish is June 2019 to June 2022.
Will the building be constructed before i have fulfilled my commitment?
Yes! Our denominational body, The Western Canadian District of the Christian and Missionary Alliance, is committed to helping us construct before all the funds have come in. The official 3-year fulfilment timeline of Flourish is June 2019 to June 2022 so there will be overlap with building completion. We see commitment cards as statements of intent we can build our financial plan around in good faith.
I have filled out a commitment card. Am i done?
No. Your commitment card is a statement of intent and way to indicate how and how frequently you intend on giving to fulfil your commitment so that we can track campaign progress. Actual giving must be set up by you, the giver, using any of the options provided. The official 3-year fulfilment timeline of Flourish is June 2019 to June 2022, but giving to Flourish can start any time after January 1, 2019.
WHEN DO YOU NEED MY COMMITMENT by?
We are calling APRIL 7 our Commitment Sunday! We graciously ask for commitments to be in by that time, when at all possible, before heading into the Easter season.
How will outstanding borrowed funds be repaid?
Upon the conclusion of our 3-year campaign ending June 2022, any outstanding debt to the Christian & Missionary Alliance will be amortized and show up as a line item in our yearly budget, supported by our General Fund giving. Currently, our budget includes building rental for our offices and Sunday meeting space.
