Glory to God, who is able to do far beyond all that we could ask or imagine.
Ephesians 3:20 (CEB)
What is Beyond?
Beyond is a campaign to raise funds for the purchase of a full time ministry facility for Hope Lutheran Church. In this campaign, we are asking our members and friends of Hope to give above and beyond their normal offerings, whether that is a one-time gift, a two year commitment, or both.
God tells us in his Word that he is able to do far beyond all that we could ask or imagine. Each of us has experienced that in one way or another in our lives. We have seen God go above and beyond in the love he has shown us in Jesus. We have seen God go above and beyond in the blessings he has poured out on our church already in the few short years of our existence. And in response to that, we are moved to go above and beyond in supporting the work of his church. It is our prayer that this campaign will provide a space for our ministry to grow far beyond all that we could ask or imagine.
What is the Goal?
The goal of this campaign is to purchase a full-time ministry facility. We imagine a space that will be used for Sunday morning worship and beyond. A gathering place for members and friends of Hope to use throughout the week. A space that will enable us to have greater impact on our community and our ability to spread God's Word.
In order to make that vision a reality, our goal is to raise $500,000 for our Grow Fund by April 23, 2023, and to receive two year commitments for an additional $250,000. We believe that this goal is attainable with the generous commitments of our givers to go above and beyond and with the blessing of our God, who is able to do far beyond all that we could ask or imagine.
We are excited to share that the amount we raised for our short-term goal was $607,153. Additionally, the amount to date pledged toward our two-year goal was $121,000 for a total of $728,153! We are amazed by how God has had a hand in this campaign and are hopeful we will reach the $750,000 target by April 2025. Thank you to those that have contributed to this campaign both monetarily and in prayer!
Make 4 times the impact on our goal!
The Church Extension Fund of WELS will match our land down payment 4:1 up to 10% of the land value and our building down payment 2:1 up to 10% of the building value.
As an example, if Hope purchased a property where the land value was $2,000,000 and the building value was $1,000,000, the land down payment would be $200,000 and the match would be $800,000. The building down payment would be $100,000 and the match would be $200,000.
