Restoring Place, Opening Doors:
First Christian Reformed Church has grown steadily in people and programs, and our leadership is strong and committed. For these gifts, we need to give thanks!
Like those that have gone before us, the journey finds us evaluating our building needs. "Restoring Place, Opening Doors" is a campaign to reinvest in our current building and expand to meet the needs of growing and evolving congregation and ministries. In June 2015, the congregation of First CRC overwhelmingly voted to move forward in faith with a campaign of over $2 million.
Moving forward requires partnerships. First Church is blessed to take this journey with Partners for Sacred Place, an organization focused on caring for and making good use of historical religious properties. They are coming alongside of our church with training and expertise to help us complete our project. They have also generously offered to match every new pledge for our campaign $1 for $1, up to $100,000.00. Their efforts have caught the attention of the Grand Rapids Press whose story can be found here.
The members of our church have already raised over $1.05 million and have secured $900,000.00 in financing. We are on the home stretch, but need your help in completing the project. Would you consider partnering with us? Every dollar you give is matched by the good people from Partners for Sacred Places.
