Capital Fund Campaign
Co-Chairs: Bill Ryall and Ed Hale

"Honor the Lord with your wealth and the first fruits of all your produce."  Proverbs 3:9

 

The people of Westbury United Methodist Church have been building the Kingdom for over 100 years. Throughout the years each generation has done its part, leaving a rich heritage of faith and works.  Now...we are called to do the same.

Building the Kingdom is usually thought of as a spiritual endeavor, but it is also necessary to have a safe, modern space for worship and fellowship.  Our current church building opened in 1949 and it is showing its age.  Many repairs and upgrades are overdue...some have been postponed for lack of funds.

Therefore, your Board of Trustees, with the blessing of the Church Council, is launching a Capital Fund Campaign--"78 Weeks of Kingdom Building"---to raise $100,000 for the work which needs to be done.  The campaign will run from January 2015 through June 2016.  Here is a summary of the needed work:

 

*REBUILD the church parking lot............................$22,000
*REPAIR the leaking flat roof...................................$21,000 (Repairs Completed)
*RENEW the six antiquated rest rooms.....................$17,000 (Men's Basement Bathroom Repairs Completed)
*REFURBISH the church kitchen.............................$14,000
*REPAINT inside and outside as needed...................$7,000
*RESERVE for smaller projects and contingencies..$19,000
                                                                              
                                                                         Total...$100,000  

It will take gifts of all sizes to make this campaign a success.  However, we ask you to consider a minimum gift of $20 weekly (or $87 monthly).  

We are asking each household to prayerfully consider the generosity God has shown to you and the critical need for this work and then willingly, from the heart, make a sacrificial gift toward the goal, over and above your regular tithes and offerings.


With your help we can continue the Kingdom Building and the ministries of our church in a safe, comfortable space...as well as pass on the legacy we have received to future generations...so they may continue the work!
