If you were in church this past Sunday, you heard us make a very important announcement. Over the last several months, we’ve been considering what the next year might hold for us terms of our facility. Our lease at 4331 N Central runs out at the end of this year, and the option to buy this facility and still have room for growth, does not exist. Therefore, at the end of 2013 we had our FlourishPhoenix campaign where we sought, among other things, enough funds to be able to take necessary steps to secure a facility for the future. As it turned out, we fell about $75,000 short of the goal.
Over the past two weeks, we’ve had the opportunity to pursue a property that’s been on our radar for almost 2 years. Things have moved very rapidly, and last week we signed agreement to purchase this property, located at 1300 North Central Ave. This location is in the heart of the city, right where downtown and midtown converge. This space will ensure our presence in the center of the city and give us the perfect place to launch gospel centered ministry for years to come.
With this development, comes the opportunity for all of us to invest. On Sunday, February 16th, I made it simple challenge and request:
We need $100,000 in 30 days.
That is our “giving campaign.” Our downpayment is $125,000 and I believe if we all join in on this, we can easily do this. This amount ($100,000) represents less than $200 per adult at New City Church. The question facing all of us: will we make an investment in an immediate need that will have eternal impact for Phoenix?
Now, for a little tour…..
