Our campaign focus is the renewal of the legacy of mission that has been the foundation of ministry at Fifth since the very early days. We know that as we continue to spread the word of Christ to our city, we need to have an inviting environment and better space for equipping disciples for ministry.
God's church is not a building - it's a body of believers acting as the hands and feet of Jesus Christ. But to do that, the church requires a central meeting place to hold worship, store resources, welcome guests, host small groups, share meals... the list goes on and on.
We are asking the congregation to partner with us by pledging gifts to reach the required $1.5 million dollars for our renovations. This is a three-year campaign running from Nov. 1, 2017 to Nov. 1, 2020. We've met with all of the current Consistory and staff to encourage 100% pledge participation, and all of those leaders have made financial commitments.
"All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make
disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son
and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to open everything I have commanded you.
And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."
Matthew 28: 18-20, NIV
