2016-18 Capital Campaign
Preserving, Proclaiming, Preparing
Since its founding in 1908, First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), Montgomery, has built a legacy of inclusiveness, welcoming all to the Lord’s Table and to the love-filled worship in God’s kingdom through Jesus Christ. The 2012 Capital Campaign seeks to PRESERVE the church’s memories and legacy; PROCLAIM God’s joyful, unconditional love through ministry and mission; and PREPARE for the church’s future in this space and location, serving and welcoming all to the redeeming and grace-filled power in God’s unconditional love.
We Paved the Way!
The 2009-2012 Capital Campaign, Paving the Way, was a great success. A second mortgage allowed FCC to improve access and parking to our facility, making it possible to serve more people in more ways than ever before. That debt has been retired, and we are ready to move forward. The 2012-15 Capital Campaign: Preserving, Proclaiming, and Preparing, lifts up our current facilities for much-needed improvements as we discern God’s call for our future. The campaign goal of $275,000 is earmarked for debt reduction and for these improvements:
First Christian Church’s legacy began with those who founded our church in 1908. These humble pioneers preserved the ministry and carried it forward through tent revivals and by meeting in members’ homes and, eventually, in our downtown church. The legacy continued as members made the visionary decision to buy property on Taylor Road. Today, we stand on the shoulders of those who carved pathways of love for this ministry, enabling us to reach others, proclaim God’s grace, and grow. By preserving our space, we honor those who made it possible to be in this space, and we work toward facilitating future growth and service to others.
Through ministry and mission, we proclaim God’s joyful, unconditional love to our church family members, to our visitors, and to all who are touched by the mission and outreach programs of First Christian Church. Since beginning the 2009 Paving the Way Capital Campaign, the ministry and mission of FCC have grown in these ways:
We are poised for a future of growth, of building, and most importantly, of serving. The Preserving, Proclaiming, and Preparing Capital Campaign will allow us to prepare our building for ministry, mission, members, and friends to come in the next generation, while preserving our past and proclaiming God’s love to all.
Our church’s future depends on us! Please prayerfully consider your campaign pledge.
