Since Fall of 2016, Canton UMC has been raising money to repair its steeple. Through the "Steeple For the People" Campaign, it is our goal to raise enough money to make the completed repairs over the next four years.
This written appeal is for each of you to seek God’s will concerning your contribution towards this effort. We are asking that you sincerely pray, and be sensitive to God’s voice in hearing what amount you should give. If we all do that then we can promise you that every need will be met.
As we take on the extra expenses involved in the steeple repair, the church still has its regular expenses as well. We do not want to stop either our outreach or community programs. It is easy to forget we still have to pay the every day bills when it comes to maintaining a church.
There are 4 phases of repair, with half of the first phase completed, costing approximately $119,000. This is just a rough estimate of cost. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the church by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In effort to ensure that we do everything possible to complete our goals. The campaign committee is also pursuing possible grant funding, and community assistance to advance the steeple work. If the goals are not met the campaign committee will need to apply for a loan.
We would like to thank you for your everyday commitment, and by joining us to secure our steeple from further disrepair.
If you would like to send a financial donation, mail your chekc or money order to Canton United Methodist Church, 41 Court Street, Canton, NY 13617 and mark "Steeple" on the memo portion of your check. THANK YOU!
