Since many of you have asked, here’s the update.  The great news is that our contractor has applied for building permits, and we hope to have the Unleash project under construction by the end of June.  And thanks to hundreds of people at Seneca Creek, here’s where we stand as of now:

As of June 5, 2016 we had received $1,129,000 toward our Unleash goal of $1.3M.  That’s cause for celebration!  If you’ve been one of the 279 families or individuals who’ve given toward this project, THANK YOU!

As we shared last week, we believe God has provided us with the resources to finish this project, and to pay for it by the time construction is completed.  We’ve set a goal of 100 days.  And we’ve set a goal of getting 350 families/individuals involved in helping us get to the finish line of $1.3 million within those 100 days.

No one can do everything, but everyone can do something.

  1. You can pray. (see prayer links here)
  2. You can help us with the initial packing party this Saturday, June 11th.  (there will be a couple more this summer).
  3. You can prayerfully consider how you and/or your family could be part of the financial goal. Consider being part of 350 other Seneca Creek family members.  Here’s a suggestion of how that may people could accomplish such a big goal in just 100 days:

As of today, there are only 95 days left in our 100 Day Challenge!  During this entire 100 day challenge, we’ll provide timely information in the following areas:

  • Construction progress
  • Changes in where and when certain ministries are meeting during construction
  • Opportunities of how we can roll up our sleeves and help, and
  • How close we are to the $1.3M finish line!

For now, please consider how you would like to be part of this project.  Because it’s about all of us working together, with God’s direction, to accomplish what he has for us in the years to come.

P.S. I often get asked during seasons like this about holding church “fundraisers,” like car washes, bake sales, flea markets, etc.  You’ve probably noticed that we don’t do those at Seneca Creek.  The reason is simple.  We believe that if God has called us as a local church to accomplish his purposes, then he has provided us with the necessary resources.

We will not ask the people of our city to pay for something that we as a church want to do.  We will not approach those who have no relationship to Seneca Creek, and possibly no relationship to God, with our hands out, looking for them to give us something.  Instead, we want to approach them with an offer to serve them, to be generous toward them.  We believe that’s how God treats us, and how we want to treat others.

  1. I like the reasons for not doing bake sales/carwashes etc. #respect

  2. Plenty of great churches have fundraisers. Fundraisers are just a different kind of sacrifice. If you have more time than money, God is still served. It’s just “doing church” differently. And that’s OK. Viva la difference.
