2019 Church Capital Campaign

“Imagine What We Can Do Together”

On January 27, 2019, the Capital Campaign Committee kicked off a parish-wide three-year initiative with a minimum $500,000 target to fund major improvements to the church buildings.

On December 9, 2018, the Capital Campaign Committee held a preliminary event, the Pacesetter Phase Reception and Luncheon, to build and encourage support from major potential donors.

As of April 16, 2019, the Capital Campaign has received pledges or gifts totaling $443,690.00 (includes 61 pledges = $400,950, and other grants and contributions).

The Capital Campaign Committee is headed by co-chairs Mark Hammaker and The Reverend Kim Guiser. Honorary co-chairs are Peter & Elizabeth Fifer, Philip & Pat Howse, Michael & Erica Logar, and Gary & Carroll Russell. Other Committee members are:  Iris Blanche, Katie Druckenmiller, Vernon Feather, Judi Hans, Gary Russell, and Retta Sparano. The Committee is guided by our Rector, The Reverend Dr. Koshy Mathews.

The main improvements planned are:

    • Electric lift between the church front vestibule and the Smith Fellowship Hall downstairs.
    • Accessible bathroom in the Smith Fellowship Hall near the new lift.
    • Air conditioning in the Smith Fellowship Hall.
    • Accessible ramp from the parking lot to the main offices.
    • Prospect Street entrance revitalization, including Cloister window repairs.
    • Other repairs, including boiler, electrical and lighting, St. Margaret’s Hall, and ground preparation for a Columbarium.
