Organizing for Mission

          Reaching the City

                    Loving the World

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

LORD, we thank you for Fifth Church and for this season of growth and renewal. Father God, you have entrusted us with your Gospel and the sharing of this Hope with the world. Give us your wisdom to be careful and responsible managers of all the blessings you have given us. Guide us to glorify you. Ready us with grace and gratitude.
