" The Giving Tree "
You may or may not know that the original plans for starting Sloan Canyon Free Will Baptist
Church called for a debt free beginning. Rising construction cost while the project was
delayed made that dream unattainable and we had to secure a loan from the Church
Extension Loan Fund (CELF) to finish the building. The loan was for $500,000 and we owe a
balance as of September 2007 of $440,000. We have a beautiful building that we are very
thankful for and we remain committed to filling it by winning people in our community to Christ.
We do the very best we can but a $3590 payment is still a difficult challenge for a mission
church. Several years ago we placed a “Giving Tree” in the foyer of our church. We
encouraged ourselves and others to give at that time in order to purchase things like
furnishing for the building and sound equipment. People in our church and all across the
country responded. We know it’s a tall order but we’re now praying that God will lay it upon
the hearts of individuals and churches to respond once again and help us retire this debt.
Think about it this way, it could be done if...
...7 churches or individuals purchased a $5000 Rock to go under the tree = $35,000
...15 churches or individuals purchased a $2000 Acorn for the tree = $30,000
...250 churches or individuals purchased a $500 Gold Leaf for the tree = $125,000
...500 churches or individuals purchased a $250 Silver Leaf for the tree = $125,000
...1000 churches or individuals purchased a $125 Bronze Leaf for the tree = $125,000
If God does and churches and individuals respond we’ll be able to go self-supporting and we
look forward to telling you we are rather than telling you why we are not!
