Dear Family of Faith at Cross,

It is with great excitement, and a few nerves, that we embark on this Capital Campaign together! This is an exciting moment because it is another chapter in a 136 year legacy of seeing God at work and responding to His call here at Cross. There is some nervousness because it means change and it s a big goal that will require our trust and dependence on God!

For the last 6 years, the Governance Board, the Facility Alignment Team and the Ministry Feasibility Team have been praying, seeking and discerning God s will for our vision and facilities. In that time, we have seen our ministry grow, impacting everyone and nurturing our young families! We have also identified a desperate need in our culture to develop Christian leaders to serve in our hurting and divided world.

The calling that God has placed upon Cross is to make disciples that Walk with God, Grow in Faith Together and Love our Neighbor. The facility plan that we have presented to you aligns with this vision. These spaces have been designed with the needs of both a mature believer and a new believer in mind. The areas intended for worship, instruction, faith formation and missional connection are all designed to support the mission and allow our congregation to grow both in size and spiritual maturity.

As a member of the family of faith at Cross, you are being asked to consider your role in this mission. In Romans 12 we are called to present our entire bodies to God as a living sacrifice; this is our spiritual act of worship. The true heart of worship is to put trust in God above all else. Cross leadership, and the many volunteer teams that have been working on this closely, are excited about the Spiritual growth that an effort like this can bring to each of us at Cross as we trust in Him.

As you consider your financial commitment to this campaign and to the general offering, do not miss the spiritual formation that God desires for you. In other words, allow the time of consideration to be one of contemplation and ensure your pledge requires faith and trust in God to provide. When we allow God to refine our hearts, He blesses our faithfulness.

It is and has been my prayer that this effort would bring Glory to God alone; and, that as a family of disciples, we would grow in faithfulness and effectiveness because of what He is doing in us, and through us.

In Him,

Erik Gauss, Senior Pastor
