Flame Alive

You can be a 2019 Flame Alive member—individuals who support the Eternal Flame Fund with an annual gift of $75 or more! One hundred percent of every gift supports the Eternal Flame Fund for the ongoing care of our church facility. Your gifts make a difference.

  • In 2018, your gifts of $1.2 million supported the restoration of the sanctuary stained glass windows.
  • In 2017, your gifts of $632,775.48 replaced our 35-year-old HVAC system.
  • In 2016, your gifts totaling $105,485.15 provided $90,550 to replace or repair 11 flat roofs; $5,547.15 for the installation of cameras in the third-floor youth area; $1,050 for LED lighting where fixtures had failed; $595 for an asbestos inspection; and $7,743 for asbestos abatement before the HVAC system was replaced.

There's a new way to give to support the Eternal Flame Fund. The DipJar is at the Welcome Center and you can take a dip to donate $75 to the Eternal Flame Fund. Every individual donating $75 or more is a member of the Flame Alive giving group.

Thank you for your generosity!

Sow righteousness for yourselves, reap the fruit of unfailing love, and break up your unplowed ground; for it is time to seek the Lord until He comes and showers His righteousness on you (Hosea 10:12).
