The Graystone Christmas Offering is an incredible opportunity at the end of the year to be generous and give God our first and best Christmas gift. Each year through this special offering we are able to invest in projects over and above our general operating budget. The goal of the 2014 Christmas Offering is $200,000, and it will go toward 3 very special projects.
1. Student and Children's Building
We are building a brand new Student & Children’s Building at our Ozora Campus. The building will be approximately 10,000 square feet and is designed to meet the growing needs of our Student and Children’s Ministries. We are currently in the architectural design phase and hope to begin construction in the fall of 2015. The cost of the entire project is approximately $1.2 million.
2. Walton Campus Renovations
We are currently in the process of renovating our first permanent facility for our Graystone Walton Campus. The total cost of the renovation is $500,000. $250,000 is coming from a construction loan and the other $250,000 is being raised through our My Move Building Campaign. A portion of the 2014 Christmas Offering will go toward completing the building, so our Walton Campus can move in ASAP.
3. Van for the Dunn Family
Jim and Mary Jane Dunn are missionaries in Curitiba, Brazil. They have devoted their lives to sharing the gospel and ministering in the orphanages and slums. They are in desperate need of a vehicle to provide transportation for their family of 10 (3 biological and 5 adopted children). With the 2014 Christmas Offering, we would like to buy them a new 12-passenger van.
God has richly blessed us, and we want to be a blessing to others. Thank you so much for being a part of the Graystone Team and helping us know God and make God known in our community and around the world!
