Mortgage Reduction Opportunity:

In God’s providence, our church has been presented with a fortuitous offer from the holder of our mortgage loan note. He is willing to reduce the amount we owe by $100,000 if we pay him the remaining balance by February 21, 2018. The OPC Loan Fund has graciously agreed to loan us the money, with excellent terms, so we can take advantage of this offer. We are currently anticipating a closing date of February 15th. If anyone feels moved to give a donation to go specifically towards reducing our mortgage loan amount, the placement of this new loan presents the perfect opportunity to do so. Any funds given for this purpose means less debt for our church. This means more of our financial resources will go towards our ministry goals like evangelism, men’s and women’s ministry, youth ministry, internships, church planting, etc. We are confident that God has great things in store for our church, and reducing our debt is a true blessing from the Lord!

Donation Request:

Our Church kitchen has a need for a second refrigerator. If you are interested in donating one in good condition, please contact Terressa Duggan by phone at 904-687-4726 or by email at terressaduggan@bellsouth.net.
