At the recent Congregational Meeting, after learning that we now owe less than $85,000 on our building mortgage, one member’s excited response: “We can pay this off by the end of this year if only 85 families give $1,000 each! My family will be happy to give a $1,000.” The Cedar Ridge elders thought it was a great idea and they all accepted her challenge.
Paying off the mortgage means that we can address other priorities that we have postponed while concentrating on paying off this debt. If your family would also like to accept her challenge and give a $1,000 gift, over and above your regular giving, just mark your check “Mortgage Pay-off Challenge”. If you are excited about helping zero out the debt, but are unable to give $1,000, please feel free to contribute any amount you can.
