For this weeks Pastor’s Corner, I wanted to first remind you all of our Leader Summit this Sunday, September 24th. Lunch will start at 12:30 p.m. sharp and we will break out into our sessions at 1:30 p.m. I cannot express how important is that those of you who serve are present.
Our theme is “So we are clear.” We will be spending our time in the specific areas of Children’s ministry, Youth Ministry, Praise and Worship, AVL, Prayer ministry, and hospitality (this will include all who serve in ushers/greeters, deacons, TGIF, and other ministries related to hospitality.
In addition to our Leader Summit I wanted you all to be aware of a real estate transaction. A couple of months ago, we were gifted the Pizza Hut in Fairplay, Colorado. It was a total divine appointment. I love how God creates these appointments and granted us favor. In light of this recent acquisition we were approached by the creator of “Gold Rush” a reality television show on the Discovery Channel, about purchasing the facility. We are currently in negotiations with them to sell them the property.
Our constitution requires that a purchase or sale of property exceeding $75,000.00 must be voted on by the church membership. If the Discovery Channel extends their season one more year they would like to purchase our property in Fairplay. There are a couple of things that we can be praying about if the contract is extended. First, that they would make a cash offer. The offer would be to purchase the property and after the final season gift us back the property. That’s right. They would purchase it from us and then give it back. Second, if the new season is not renewed they would like to lease it from us for one year to finish out their current contract. With that said, we will need to have a business meeting surrounding this sale. Please be in prayer about this. More information will be given as we get closer.
