IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENTS (April 2021)
We have learned of an opportunity to purchase an already existing structure, on Lycoming Creek Rd, that could meet the needs of this campaign. Construction costs are on the rise, due to the pandemic, which might change the financial implications drastically and put our plans on hold until further fundraising could be completed. No plans have been changed, at this point, we are exploring all options as we wait for the contractor bids to come in. Please check out the video updates below, with important information and dates highlighted after those. The reasons for this campaign still exist, we need more room for our flourishing children's ministry, and should be contemplated as we ask for God's guidance in this process.
Important things to note....
- Bids have gone out, as planned, and should be in around the end of May, beginning of June.
- May 16th, from 10am to 2pm, there will be an Open House at the Trinity building. Everyone will be welcome to do a walk through and ask questions.
- May 23rd, after 2nd service, we will hold a Congregational meeting to decide if we should make an offer on the Trinity building. We value everyone's input, so please plan to attend.
- Bids will be reviewed as they come in.
- June 13, we will have a second Congregational meeting where WE WILL VOTE on how to move forward. Again, we value everyone's input, so please plan to attend.
Throughout this process, we will ask for a time of prayer and fasting.
Remember, our vision is to see the transformation of people and communities everywhere for God's glory. Pray and fast with us for God to make His plan for Fairlawn clear, and to set us forward on that path.
