New at Seminole Heights UMC: Restoring the Past, Building the Future Capital Campaign

Updated: Mar 25



THE VISION

Our Capital Campaign—Restoring the Past, Building the Future—honors and recognizes the rich history of our church while looking to the future of what we can build together. A campaign to replace the air conditioner that cools the Sanctuary and Allen Hall and replace the elevator will allow our church to continue to thrive and grow as we welcome all ages to experience the love of God.





FROM THE PASTOR

Seminole Heights UMC has been serving our community for over 100 years, inside and outside the walls of our historic building. By updating accessibility and comfort in our primary worship and meeting spaces, we will create a welcoming and enjoyable space for neighbors of all ages to gather, grow, and share in the love of God. As you pray alongside our Church Leadership Team and Campaign Leadership Team, be reminded of those who came before us and built this house to glorify God and our call to do the same for the beloved children of God who will come after us. — Pastor Tiffania


THE DETAILS

The costs of the elevator and air conditioner replacement are estimated around $250,000. A new elevator will allow older adults, those with mobility issues, and families with strollers to comfortably access our Sanctuary on Sundays. The air conditioner that cools the Sanctuary and Allen Hall has not worked at full capacity for many years, and a new replacement will ensure the comfort of those worshipping on Sundays and meeting in Allen Hall throughout the week for years to come. Any additional funds raised will be kept in a Building Fund and used for further repairs to our historic building.


WHAT CAN I DO?

Not an equal share, but an equal sacrifice.

The leadership of your church recognizes that giving any time, let alone giving during these challenging times, means making a sacrifice. Scripture calls us to sacrificial giving in our worship of God, and in our efforts to care for others. In fact, we're instructed to give with joy because of the love Jesus gave for all people in his life, death, and resurrection. That’s how Jesus gave Himself for the world. Still, we recognize that not everyone will be able to give the same amount.


IT ALL STARTS WITH PRAYER

As with all other things, it is appropriate to pray as you seek God’s wisdom for your gift over and above your regular support. Please start praying now. We will receive commitments in mid-May. Would you join us and pray the following prayer and then listen for how God would answer?

“God, what do You want to do through me?”
