What is the One Wellshire campaign? The One Wellshire Capital Improvement Campaign is raising funds for a Narthex expansion and a Sanctuary renovation, as well as for missions by retiring debt accrued in the purchase of additional property and donating a percentage of receipts to a mission partner.
Why are we doing this? Wellshire exists for the purpose of glorifying and enjoying God! This campaign is designed to enhance our Christian fellowship, strengthen our worship, draw us closer together as ONE congregation, and make our seeker/visitor experience more positive.
When will construction take place? Hopefully and prayerfully, construction will start in the summer or fall of 2017. This schedule is contingent upon having adequate funding in place, the availability of our contractor, and the City of Denver permitting process. You will be well informed of any delays and the reason for them should they occur.
How much will this cost? The announced financial goal of the campaign is $3,275,000. This figure is based upon what we need for the project and traditional church capital campaign calculations. If we raise more or less than this total, the scope of the campaign may be adjusted.
How can I contribute to the One Wellshire Campaign? Pledge cards to the campaign will be made available beginning Sunday, October 9, and mailed to every home the following week. All are asked to return those pledges cards to Chuck Sparks, Director of Operations. If it is more convenient, you may contact Chuck at email@example.com, 303-758-2233, ext. 212, or – better! – drop by the Church Office and talk to him about your commitment to the One Wellshire Campaign.
How much should I contribute? The Bible says, “To whom much is given, much is expected,” and Jesus tells us that “a widow’s mite” given piously is of great value. Wellshire has not attempted a capital campaign since 2004, and another campaign of this magnitude is not planned. To maintain our vibrancy into the 21st century, members will need to give significantly – if not sacrificially.
How long do I have to pay my pledge? We have budgeted for a three-year pledging cycle, beginning in 2017. However, due to the rapid inflation in the cost of construction, early donations are valued! If you are able to make a gift by the end of 2016, it would be kindly appreciated.
Will pledges be made public? No. Your pledge will be known only by God and those who work in the Financial Office. On the other hand, if you wish to speak with one of the pastors or a member of the One Wellshire team about the appropriate size of your gift, they are happy to do so.
Am I legally obligated to pay my pledge? No. Should you move away or your circumstances change over the course of three years, you may raise or lower your pledge at any time. The only thing that we would ask is that you notify the church. However, we do hope you consider your pledge as a sacred oath.
Is there a deadline to pledge? No! We are pleased to receive your pledge at any time. Again, please contact Chuck Sparks, Director of Operations (firstname.lastname@example.org).
