UPDATE- Exciting Opportunity To Help Us Move!

UPDATE (please continue to read below)-

Within 2 hours we raised the money needed for earnest money!!!!! Praise God. Here’s the deal- That was raise by 6 people. I believe many, many more can give towards this important step for us as a church. So I am challenging all who did not give yet (or who were planning to and just hadn’t yet) to do so. We would love to raise over and above this $5,ooo, as all extra money raised will go towards the down payment of the building, paying off the principle of a loan, and/or fees or moving costs associated with the move. So be generous and obedient and give to this need we have as a church family. And please be in prayer that the other contingencies in this deal can be met- the securing of financing and a particular netted amount from the sale of our property. If those contingencies are not met, we will contact all who gave towards this to see if you’d like the donation you made to go towards a new building acquisition.

Dear friends and family of Fellowship Church,

We have recently made an accepted offer (with several contingencies in place) on a property, right off I-5, in South Salem that will be a perfect fit for our congregation- 7 acres with a nearly 10,000 square foot beautiful building, and an additional 1,000+ square foot modular building. The building will over double our kids space, over triple our bathroom space (yeah!), and double our sanctuary seating capacity. The property and building are absolutely beautiful and move-in ready with little remodeling needed. If all contingencies are successfully removed, the goal is to be meeting in the new building by late September- early October!

The earnest money required for the offer is $10,000. So far, God has graciously led someone to give $5,000 towards the earnest money needed, which will be deposited into escrow within the next few days. The remaining $5,000 must be deposited within 15 days.

As a church, we need to come together to raise the remaining $5,000 by August 18th. This is OUR church! We can do it!

After the full $10,000 is deposited into escrow, two contingencies will remain- securing financing, and having a certain amount of net proceeds available after the close of our property- we are currently working on both of these things. If the additional $5,000 is not raised by the 18th, our accepted offer will be terminated, and we will be out the $5,000 already deposited. But we do not believe that will happen! We are a generous church filled with contributors who want to see God receive glory and His Kingdom advance though the crucial ministries of Fellowship Church!

So would you consider giving sacrificially and generously towards this next step in the life of our church?

We are looking specifically for x3 individuals, families, businesses, or churches to give $1,000 each, x3 to give $500, and x5 to give $100. Any money raised above the $5,000 will be put towards the down payment of the building or the principle of the loan- After all, we’re believing there will be those who would like to, and are able to, give the full $5,000. If the other contingencies fall through, causing our earnest money in full to be returned, we will contact you to see if you would like your donation back, or would like to use it towards a new building acquisition.

You can give by using “text to give-” Simply text the dollar amount you’d like to give, plus the word “building” to 971-203-0085. You can give HERE by giving to “building.” You can mail a check to Fellowship Church at 4049 Market St NE. Salem, OR 97301- make sure to write “building” in your check’s memo. You can also give during one of our services- simply make sure to write “building” on your giving envelope.

If you are able to commit to this, but can’t do so until after the 18th, please let us know.

If you have any questions in regards to giving towards the earnest money needed or our new property acquisition, don’t hesitate to ask. Email us at info@fellowshipsalem.com or give us a call at 503-363-8622 and someone from our board or elders will contact you to answer answer any questions you may have.
