Loan Payments: The End is Near!

Today is the 5th anniversary of the original commitment Sunday for the Compton Cares Campaign. This blog has existed to chronicle the beginning as well as the construction progress for accessibility in our building. And now there is exciting news as we realize that the payoff of our last accessibility loan is nearly here, some 10 to 11 months ahead of when we expected to do it. I have updated some figures in the sidebar, and if you want to review the posts from 2006, 2007 and 2008 to refresh you memory of the "before" and "after" now is a good time to do that. You also might want to revisit the list of donors and acknowledgements from the June 14,2008 dedication post.

When the celebration of the loan payoff is scheduled, I will update the blog once more, and it will remain up for about 6 months after that. But barring a new development, this blog will probably be taken down during the latter part of 2012, having served its purpose. The congregation is now utilizing an e-mailed electronic newsletter and a FaceBook page for the chronicle of its times, and a public blog no longer seems necessary. Just thought I'd let you know that if you want to save any of the photos or text from the account of the Compton Cares project, you might want to do it sooner rather than later.

What a wonderful summary Judi! God has been working in such powerful ways in and through this congregation. What moves me is that in this period of time, this congregation accomplished an amazing beginning to accessibility and making the building more hospitable, while recognizing that there is more to be done! We continued ministry in the community through Isaiah 58 Ministries, we began a children's program as little ones were added to the congregation, and we became a Global Mission church engaging in two mission trips and now sponsoring children. In this period the congregation has grown spiritually and has grown a bit in numbers. Compton Heights Christian Church has an amazing faith and sense of God's vision that a balanced and integrated life.

Thanks be to God!
