Unleashed Campaign Update
Last Sunday morning I was given a great opportunity to share the history and our current status on our mortgage debt elimination. It was very exciting to sense and hear the enthusiasm in the room as I shared the report. However, there was a lot of information and it was shared very quickly. In order to be more intentional in sharing information in a variety of ways, I felt it would be important to share the report in written form. The following is the report as I read it from the platform last Sunday.
Our “What-if?” campaign kicked off on Nov. 2015, with a mortgage debt of $150,819.00
By May 2016 we had raised $95,916 and paid the mortgage debt down to $54,903.00
We concluded the “What-if?” campaign in the summer of 2016. From June 2016 – December 2016 we continued to pay our monthly mortgage payment from the General Fund.
We developed a team to do another campaign in January 2016 and came up with UNLEA$HED! The Mortgage debt at the start of this campaign had fallen to $48,910.00
Campaign began with leadership in February and congregationally in March of 2017
We continue to pay our monthly mortgage debt of $713.14 from our General Fund.
Total Unlea$hed gifts received as of April 27th was: $22,327.13
Unlea$hed money applied to principal:
Paid on mortgage on 2/28/17 $12,944.63
Paid on mortgage on 4/24/17 $9,358.50
Total applied to principal: $22,303.13
Mortgage balance as of April 30, 2017 is $24,309.42
In two months we paid off about 50% of the Kickoff amount! Our prayer is that the “Unlea$hed” campaign will end on August 31st with 100% paid and LCC being DEBT FREE!!!
Our Unlea$hed Celebration will take place on Sunday, September 10th at 6 pm. The band “64 To Grayson” will be performing. A special guest will be speaking. A representative from the bank will be in attendance to burn the debt. A catered meal will be provided. PLACE THIS ON YOUR CALENDAR TODAY!!!
