God blessed us with our current facility in September of 2006. As we anticipated, this new facility has greatly enhanced our ministries and our outreach potential. We are so blessed to have a facility like the one we now have!
Since our Building Bridges campaign is officially over, some have asked a number of questions about what is next. The following are some of the common questions that have been asked. We hope the answers will help to clarify where we are and we we’re headed in the near future.
Question #1: Why are we not involved in a major debt retirement campaign right now?
The process of raising funds, construction, and relocation was a huge and grueling process – rewarding but exhausting. Because of this, we have intentionally not, as yet, made any specific plans for a debt retirement program. Since so many gave sacrificially during our Building Bridges campaign, we felt that it might be wise to give everyone a little time to catch their breath. In addition, the present instability of the national/world economy is forcing us to be even more careful in planning the next official campaign.
Question #2: Even though we do not have an official debt retirement program going right now, can we continue to give toward Building Bridges?
Yes! In fact, some have continued to give toward Building Bridges since the campaign officially came to an end and this is much appreciated. These gifts have been held in the B.B. account and will eventually be used as “seed money” when we are ready to begin another fund raising campaign. If you want to give to this account, please feel free to do so and your additional gifts will be added to those already given.
Question #3: Do we have any long-range plans for retiring our debt?
Yes! Our long-range fund raising plans are beginning to take shape and we hope to unveil a strategy to reduce some, if not all, of our debt sometime soon. But, given the present instability of the national/world economy, we think it prudent to pursue a “wait and see” policy for a few months. We believe things will come into clearer focus and we will have a better “feel” for how we should move forward.
Even so, we do not want to focus on “what is seen” but want on “what is unseen.” As people of faith, we want to look for the possibilities and opportunities God places before us. We encourage our Trinity family to pray for clear vision and for spiritual alertness so that when God tells us to go, we will jump forward without hesitation. God promises in His Word to do “exceedingly, abundantly, above what we can ask or even think.” With confidence in this promise, we eagerly anticipate His marching orders.
