We want to see every person flourish in our community.
We're building a movement for good in our community by envisioning a non-profit community center #forgreen #forakron and #foryou. We'd like to invite you to join us in building a community-center non-profit hub in Green. We're on a mission to do as much good as possible in our community.
We've been on quite a journey together since we decided almost a decade ago to move our congregation from downtown Akron to Green. And today, we’re emerging from all of the challenges as a strong, resilient group of people that wants to cultivate hope and love for all in our community.
Over these last 10 years, we’ve endured the trials and tribulations of selling a large, downtown Akron church building, completed a search that brought us a dynamic new pastor, worshipped in a couple of temporary spaces, and purchased over 9 acres of easily-accessible land on Arlington Rd., just north of Boettler in the Spring Hill development. In addition, we’ve already successfully completed an initial fundraising campaign to support the transition, which raised over 1 million dollars from a lot of very generous people with attachments to High Street (the old HSCC), Harmony Springs (the new HSCC), or both.
The final stage in our transition is now upon us. We simply need to raise the last $150,000 through our RE<>CONNECT<>ING Campaign to enable us to build our desired structure on our land this year, and bring our future within sight. As of Saturday, March 2, 2019, this campaign has already surpassed 2/3 of its fundraising goal, in only its first week.
This flexible, multi-purpose center with a capacity to hold 150+ people will begin to allow us to fulfill our ultimate objective to help everyone prosper in the community. We want people to utilize this beautiful and comfortable new space to hold events like baby showers, birthday parties, and weddings. We also plan to make it available for seminars, workshops, nonprofit meetings, and fundraisers. A brand new kitchen will also be in the facility, and could be used for community meals, fundraising dinners, and receptions.
Above all else, we simply envision this facility serving as a welcoming new hub for many types of gatherings of people, including spiritual worship, collaborative efforts, and anything else that contributes to the overall good of the community.
We've been dreaming about creating this kind of space for over a decade, and we'd like to invite you to join us in making this a fabulous new asset for the people of Green, and beyond. We're excited to say that we are now within thousands of dollars of reaching that finish line as a result of this most recent campaign. So, we kindly ask you to support this RE<>CONNECT<>ING Campaign to make this dream become a reality for our community this year. #forgreen #forakron and #foryou.
