WHAT IS INVISIBLE TO INDISPENSABLE?
As our theme verse suggests, our mandate and calling is for impact in our world. God’s Kingdom come is about action: a partnership with God to reach people in His world. We must not hide in the shadows, or blend into the landscape. We must be visible and engaged, and our building and services need to become an indispensable part of our engagement with our city.
WHY ARE WE DOING A CAPITAL CAMPAIGN?
New Hope’s streetscape is dramatically improving. The city of Rochester is investing nearly 40 million dollars in renovations and improvements right outside our front door. In response, our building needs to be repaired and upgraded, otherwise we will stand out for the wrong reasons. It is important to be visible and invested in our city. We want our building to reflect the intentionality of our heart and commitment to serve our community. This requires upgrades and renovations inside and out.
WHAT’S THE END GOAL?
While we want a building that attracts positive attention and serves as a welcome sight in our neighborhood, it is more than bricks and mortar. Our building should be a destination. The end goal is that people will be reached with the good news of Jesus Christ and His radical love for the community will be known to all. We want to be an instrument for life and community transformation.
