As we head into August, we are excited to report that we are well over halfway to our goal of $30 million for the Enduring Hope capital campaign. We began the campaign in 2022 with this mission: Compelled by God’s call, Westminster’s enduring hope is for a sustainable future for our church, and justice in our city and beyond.
Since the campaign began, we have focused on three areas: paying off debt, supporting mission, and renovating the chapel. In December, Westminster paid off early a Thrivent loan incurred to fund the building expansion project. In January, we began the chapel renovation project, which was completed this spring. Over the past year, the campaign’s Mission Component team has discerned how best to direct gifts, so they have the greatest impact. They recommended supporting 13 organizations that focus on advancing racial and social justice.
However, there is more money to be raised to meet our goal. Before Senior Pastor Tim Hart-Andersen retires, we will celebrate the campaign’s progress in October. We would love to reach our goal by then. Please consider giving your first gift or increasing your pledge to the Enduring Hope campaign to help us meet our goal this fall. Donate to the campaign today through Realm. If you are interested in increas-ing your existing pledge to the campaign, contact Kelsey Crouch-Dodson.
