On June 13, the Church Conference approved the preliminary architectural plans, cost estimate, and financial plan presented by the Building Study Committee. The Building Committee was authorized to proceed in the development of detailed plans and specifications for the building project. If you were unable to attend the Church Conference, we encourage you to visit www.firstcary.com/news to access all documents including the video of the conceptual plan.
During the first quarter of 2017 we will engage in a Capital Campaign in support of our building project. To give the Capital Campaign every opportunity to succeed, Church Council adopted a statement and position that there would be no competing fundraising during the time frame from February 9 through March 19, 2017. Commitment Sunday for the Capital Campaign is March 19, and our Celebration Sunday is April 2. We wanted to give you as much advance notice as possible so that you may plan your spring fund raising appropriately.
Thank you for your faithful support of First UMC Cary! We are grateful and blessed to launch the next phase of our legacy that will Share the Heart of Christ from the Heart of Cary for another 145 years.
Grace and peace to you,
Linda Miller, Church Council Chair
Mark Schneider, Lay Leader
