This past Monday morning, I was on my way to another meeting in the main building when I stopped by the Children’s Wing to check on the construction progress. I knew the large folding wall/partition had been installed last week, and as luck would have it Mister Mark was in the area showing another staff member the new space! I got to hear all about how the children will utilize the new rooms and the exciting ways they will be learning and exploring our favorite stories from the Bible.
To say that the expansion looks great is an understatement — and I can’t wait until Fall Academy begins to watch the children experience this new space and the amazing new classes already being planned. Through this brief tour, I am reminded of Why I Give. I highly value the Christian education that both of my children received, and I give so other families can have that same experience for their children. Thank you to the more than 550 families who have already made their 2016 commitment to our church. If you have not yet made your commitment, I hope you will take a few moments to think about what you are most grateful for and prayerfully consider honoring that blessing with your own commitment to supporting the ministries of our church for the coming year. It’s very exciting to see our expanding group of people who are embracing the spiritual side of giving with their own answers to “This is Why I Give.” I hope you will join us with your 2016 commitment.
