We are the Anglican Church of Pentecost here in Houston, Texas. We are reaching out to you our community, to initiate a fundraiser for the benefit of building a new church facility which is needed for our growing church membership and the future services we would like to provide. Earlier this year we were victims of a swindling, dishonest contractor. We previously raised $98,000 amongst our members but that money was stolen by the previous contractor who was in charge of our building project. This church means a lot to many Anglican followers especially here in Houston, because this is where we get a sense of our culture, tradition and a sense of our community. We are trying to pass on our religious traditions and culture to the younger generation and a new church is needed to do that. This means so much to us, due to the simple fact that this will allow us to continue to help spread the religious teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ. Our mission is very simple: to spread the love of Jesus Christ in our community and its surrounding areas. It is our desire to touch the hearts of the broken, and to empower the community at large by becoming a place for change, growth, purpose, comfort, and refuge.
As a church of purpose, it is our desire to empower people both spiritually and naturally through community initiatives, while focusing strategically in three (3) areas: God, Family, and Community.
ABOUT THIS CAMPAIGN:
The objective of this Church Building Fund Campaign is to recoup the funds stolen by a swindling contractor in order to build a church where Christ is preached, and in turn, the community and God can meet together. Also, by establishing a concrete position in the community, we will be able to reach and serve more effectively.
THE BENEFITS OF THIS PROJECT:
At the completion of this project, the church and community will benefit from the following, but not be limited to: · A sanctuary that will accommodate up to 250+ parishioners · Family enrichment and the cultivation of healthy social living · An increase in membership and giving · The development of a community center, food pantry, after school program · Classrooms for meetings and youth education · Outdoor summer camps and activities for the youth
