Do Something Expansion Campaign

 
Where Are We Now?
 
FCC’s campus expansion project has been estimated at a total cost of $2,000,000. We needed $250,000 to begin Phase One, which includes putting a new roof on the existing main building, and adding a porte-cochere to help our elderly, handicapped, and families with small children to load/unload from their vehicles in inclement weather. Phase One also includes adding a new office entrance for our future office space. We currently have received donations totaling $548,246.96 and are working toward beginning construction on Phase One.
 
Our engineers almost have the bid packages completed. Phase One will be bid in three separate bid packages – – the roof, the Porte-cochere, and the site work. The roofing material that is being proposed will be a GAF long-life, 50 year shingle. This will not only save money on the materials and labor but will allow us to keep the current gutter and facia. We have decided to scale back on the Porte-cochere and only have one lane of traffic and to use a truss system rather than the park timbers. The more conventional approach will save money. Some of the beams and post can be wrapped in cedar to maintain the desired appearance. The underside will have a T and G wooden ceiling. This should look very nice. The site work on the west end parking remodel is 95 percent complete. We are really close to finding out the price for all of Phase One. The planning sometimes takes longer than the construction but the planning is so critical to the integrity of the project!
 
Continue to pray for the project as it moves forward.

Missionary Update from Justin & Steffani

 
Kingdom Business is under the focused area of ministry (FAM) that we refer to as Community Development. Being part of community development means caring about all parts of development, including our GO school!
 
We’re launching our own version of the bigger Close the Gap Campaign and would love to get you involved. To give you an idea, this fundraiser has 100 boxes of different amounts to give. 120 – 150 of you normally open this email. Don’t fall for the trap of thinking that, “Oh, someone else will give. They surely don’t need my help.”
 
Read it again, 100 boxes, 120 – 150 people open this email, that means WE NEED YOU to participate! It’d be a great honor and privilege to partner with you to support 55 families with 3 months of tuition for their son or daughter to attend our school while they’ve been out of work and unable to afford their part of the tuition.
 
As mentioned in the video, the rest of the money will go to other exciting projects like building our Leadership Development Complex as well as helping us out as a couple. We can’t do what we do without your support. We have seen God provide for us as a couple in ministry since 2015 and are continually awed at how He uses His Church to fulfill His mission!
 
Will you be a part of His mission in regards to this? It may seem like a lot, because it is, but we can do this together Church! We thank God we get to partner with all of you and love coming alongside and developing relationships with you.
 
May you be blessed in this time of great need both here and abroad. May you turn to Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, when anxiety wants to pull you down. May you realize that often times God uses us to answer one another’s prayers.

Praises:
  • Finished the theory part of the kingdom business classes with church planters who want to start a chicken processing plant. Had a few technology glitches but overall it went great!
  • See video for a HUGE praise  😉
  • Got to visit Stef’s parents in TN and now my parents in IL for some downtime, don’t you love seeing your own parents love on your kid???
Prayers:
  • Chicken processing plant to move forward. We’re currently waiting on permission to open up the plant in the area where we want to open up and we seem to be running into a bit of ‘island time’
  • For a healthy rest of the….well, watch the video to find out!  😉
  • Grow closer to God and each other as we navigate parenting a toddler. He’s such a wonderful and happy 2 year old but if you’re a parent you know that’s also accompanied by some trying times and testing of boundaries. Like my dad said, “If he wasn’t testing his boundaries I’d be concerned!”

Missionary Update from the Sudsberry Family

This picture is Ryan recording a video for a campaign to empower our church planting staff. You can watch the series of 3 videos HERE which highlight our growing local Dominican staff. (You can even support one!) 🙂

So many things happening in 2020

Like you we have tried to navigate all of the things happening this year. We started off with some amazing support and even kicked off the launch of a church planting building in Santiago, DR with a Gala in Louisville that went amazing.
 
We then had several churches join us to see what is happening with us in the DR and now around the world. We held a Global Church Planting Conference with a few hundred leaders, had an assessment for new church planters, and were very involved in starting new churches in prisons.
 
Then…things changed.
 
Here we are a few months later trying to navigate the new landscape like you in both the US as well as the world we are serving. We are hiring several new key staff members who are trying to fundraise in the middle of this, keep our family support going through you, our partners, and continue to empower and train leaders to serve and love well in their countries around the world.
 
As a family we continue to love and empower local leaders, as a family we are navigating college recruiting and applications for our oldest, as a family we try to make decisions that are wise and beneficial to the world around us.
 
During this time we have also been able to worship with our friends in Scotland, the Dominican, and the US…the online church has its benefits. 🙂
 
We are grateful for you and your continued support. Praying for you daily.
