UPDATE APRIL 28, 2019
The congregation came together for a called Church Conference after services on Sunday, April 28th to receive a report and the status of our building project. After presentations and a time of questions, the membership present was asked to vote on whether or not to proceed with the project. A written ballot was passed out and the vote taken. The congregation overwhelmingly approved the continuation of this vital project.
As more news on progress becomes available we will post it here.

GREAT NEWS FROM GROWING TOGETHER WITH GOD BUILDING CAMPAIGN
February 12, 2019
I have exciting news to share! During worship on Sunday, the people of Point Washington UMC had the opportunity to step forward in faith and offer their estimate of giving cards. I am excited to share that after only one Sunday, we have already received over $900,000 in pledges! When combined with our Building Fund, we celebrate reaching over $1.25 million in cash and pledges! Look what God is doing in our midst! A special thank you to everyone that offered a card for our Growing Together with God campaign.
I invite anyone who has not offered an estimate of giving card to either mail it in, bring it to worship this Sunday or submit your estimate of giving through this confidential link: http://bit.ly/CAMPAIGNPLEDGE. Our goal is to raise $1.75 million in cash and pledges which will enable us to complete our renovations and new building with no long term debt. We can do this! We are already so close after only one Sunday!
With these facility improvements, every ministry of our church will be able to grow and offer more ways for others to know Christ. I am humbled by the faith in God our congregation has shown by offering these estimates of giving that will allow us to touch more lives with the love of Christ. Even now, our building committee is moving ahead with final drawings and the research necessary for engineers and others to make all of these dreams a reality. Indeed, the power of God at work in us is able to do far beyond all that we could ask for or imagine! (Ephesians 3:20).
A special thank you to our visioning committee, building study committee, building committee, capital campaign committee and everyone who helped with the campaign and prayed during the prayer vigil. I am amazed by what God has done in and through the Body of Christ here at Point Washington UMC, and I am looking forward to all that God will continue to do through us as we work together to fulfill our mission To Know Christ, To Love Christ, To Make the Love of Christ Known!
Grace and Peace,
