CrossBridge New Building Capital Campaign
Phase 1- Initial Pledge Campaign and Down payment raised
-Made our first mortgage payment in April 2018 at $2900/month which is coming from the current 2018 general church budget from our tithes
Phase 2- 13% in Overruns – need additional $75,000 to complete the new building
-excavation- more peat than expected
-engineer changes to meet code requiring increase in materials i.e. firewall, framing, bracing
-weather- high winds and rain caused delays which caused increase rental time for crane and labor
-hurricane caused “supply and demand” economy which resulted in higher market prices of building materials and businesses were not able to live up to their pre-construction pricing promises or inventory
-Marquette County had many large commercial constructions which caused shortage of subcontracting for concrete and masonry to be paid out at higher pricing and delays.
-grateful for promised free/discounted labor costs projected for remaining drywall, painting, siding, ceiling, soffit and fascia (remember we have taken this savings into account, if these savings fall through we will need much more money again)
-projected occupancy of when we can begin using the new gymnasium is to be determined based on coding. Tentative plan is for a Grand Opening in the Fall 2018.
Phase 3- Finish Old Building and furnishings (Estimate of $14,000)
-Roughly $10,000 is budgeted to come out of our 2018 General church budget for materials
-Uncertain on any new code requirements causing increases in cost
Phase 4: Mortgage Payoff
Praise God! We praise God for His provision and leading! CrossBridge Church has been blessed as a church by members and others who have stepped up and given so generously toward our new sanctuary/gym building project. We have outgrown our current building and we will gain 5 classrooms, offices, a Sanctuary/Gym, storage, and a kitchen with this new addition. If anyone is interested in being a part of gifting toward the new building, they can go to upcrossbridge.com and contribute. Please memo gift as "building project." If interested in volunteering for the July workdays, there is a sign up sheet on the table. Thank you to all who have prayed for and supported CrossBridge Church over the last eight years.
