The Faith in Our Future Centennial Campaign
In celebration of LAC’s 100-year legacy bringing joy, support, comfort and inspiration to our community. The Faith in Our Future Centennial Campaign has begun to raise funds to support growth-focused initiatives over the next three years designed to:
Attract and welcome new members to our caring Christian community and expand outreach to the Sound Shore community
Engage our Congregation in service to our Lord and care for our community
Renew and update our stately but aging common and meeting spaces to assure they are welcoming and able to effectively serve the 21st century needs of our children, youth and adult education and the partners who depend on our Church.
To meet these goals, the Campaign will fund a part-time Coordinator for Congregational Life staff position to help foster membership and congregational engagement; as well as beautification of the Forest Park entrance and Russell Hall and a significant re-vitalization of the Carhart Room. We would of course update our technology, digital media and video capabilities as we go. Some reasonable expenses from this year’s Centennial events will also be covered by the Campaign.
$300,000 in matching grants will help us reach our goal. To get us started, generous and committed LAC supporters have agreed to match $1 for $1 up to $300,000 in contributions or pledges to the Faith in Our Future Centennial Campaign, thus doubling the value of your contribution. Pledges may be fulfilled over a period of 3 years ending December 31, 2016.
Show your Faith in Our Future. You can make your contribution or pledge by notifying the Church Bookkeeper, Marjorie Bee, at firstname.lastname@example.org or click Give Now and choose the Faith In Our Future Centennial Campaign in the drop down.
