Capital Campaign Kicks Off

Our faith. Our future. Our time.

On Sunday, May 14th we joyfully kicked off the public phase of a new capital campaign to raise funds for much-needed improvements to our buildings, energy conservation, and landscaping. The vision behind these improvements, in a nutshell, is to no longer be one of Marin’s best-kept secrets. We want our light to shine in a world where people seek refuge, for mooring, for grounding in something hopeful and something bigger than themselves. We want to welcome people more warmly, hospitably, and safely whether they come to worship or to one of the many other ministries we offer here because we have been blessed with these buildings.

More details can be found here. Look for packets in your mailbox this week, or pick up extra materials in the narthex in the coming Sundays.

During the initial phase of our 2017-2020 campaign, we encourage you to make an outright financial gift, or a pledge that can be paid off over a three-year period. Our Facilities Planning Team led by Dave Jones has worked tirelessly to assess our facilities for safety, accessibility, comfort, environmental concerns and other criteria. They’ve come up with a host of plans, including replacement of the education wing and preschool roof, modernization of bathrooms, installation of double-paned windows and more solar panels, and better access for people with disabilities, to name a few. Our Capital Campaign Leadership Team has also been busy – developing campaign materials and a video, plus reaching out to our church officers and other members for leadership gifts.

Questions? Ideas? Contact any member of the campaign leadership team – Dave Jones and Margaret Melsh, co-chairs, Laurie Buntain, Erica Heath, Ernie Hubbard, Martha Olsen Joyce, Marita Mayer and Joanne Whitt.
