After the FMPC presented the expansion plans in Sunday School department meetings in 2012, the Capital Stewardship Committee (CSC) was formed to develop a plan to raise funds for the expansion project. The committee determined that Trinity would need approximately $7 million for the project ($5.8 million for the building and $1.2 million for related expenses), and arrived at the following Capital Campaign goals:
- Achieve a minimum of $4 million, pledged over a period of 4 years. This amount will allow Trinity to move forward with the current proposed building expansion while staying within our $3 million long-term debt ceiling.
- Achieve $7 million, pledged over a period of 4 years. This amount will allow Trinity to complete the current proposed build expansion without the need for long-term debt.
After reviewing and comparing statistics from Trinity’s 2002 Capital Campaign to current membership and budget figures, the CSC believes we could accomplish these campaign goals. In our previous campaign we received $2.86 million towards the Recreation and Outreach Center (ROC) based on 412 pledges including some non-pledge giving. Our congregation is larger now, and our giving has been increasing.
