Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” 2 Corinthians 9:7

Capital Campaign: Investing in Generations
Dear Holy and loving God, We lift up our hearts in prayer today recognizing you as the source of all good things. You created the world and everything in it. You bless us with the sun, rain and even snow, and we are grateful. We thank you for sending your son Jesus Christ to die upon the cross. Through belief in his death and resurrection we have eternal life with you. We come before you this day giving you thanks for our family called CROSSROADS. CROSSROADS CHURCH was built on a firm foundation of faith. We continue to build on that foundation as we look to the future. Give us strength and courage to share our faith with future generations. As we invest in future generations with our finances, may we in our love of you. Help us to continue to be faithful to our vision of being a biblically functioning community of believers.” Amen
What is the Capital Campaign’s purpose?
There are two purposes for the Investing in Generations Capital Campaign:
- Mortgage Reduction: The goal is to reduce and potentially eliminate our mortgage debt from our Lakeville Campus. This will free up available funds to support CROSSROAD CHURCH’S mission, ministries and outreach. The current mortgage is $1.4 million with monthly payments of $9,120.
- Property Improvements: We have several important building projects needing prompt attention. Here are the projects we hope to accomplish as campaign funds are received:
Lakeville Campus – Estimated Cost of $100,000
New carpet and paint in the front lobby and side hallways
Inver Grove Heights Campus – Building & Grounds Enhancements – Estimated Cost of $150,000
Sealing and repaving the parking lot
Replacement of windows
Installing a playground for CROSSROADS youth as well as a possible daycare
CROSSROADS CHURCH Leadership, based on amounts pledged, will finalize which projects require immediate replacement or repair and will prioritize others for attention.
What is the Capital Campaign’s fundraising goal, and how will the money be split between mortgage reduction and property improvements?
Minimum Goal = $1 million
This amount will enable CROSSROADS CHURCH to complete the necessary facility and grounds projects at the Lakeville and IGH Campus and continue making monthly payments on our mortgage.
Faith Goal = $1.5 million
With prayer and focus on our mission as a church, reaching our Faith Goal will assist in completing the proposed building and grounds projects and considerably decrease our mortgage principal.
Miracle Goal = $2 million
We believe that all things are possible through Christ. If we reach our Miracle Goal, CROSSROADS CHURCH can complete the proposed building enhancement projects, eliminate our debt and have money in a reserve fund for future building maintenance. Eliminating our debt will also free us from monthly mortgage payments and enable CROSSROADS CHURCH to spend that money on future ministries.
If we reach our minimum goal or more, all building projects will be completed and the remaining funds will be directed towards debt reduction.
In order to reach our goal we encourage donors to think creatively. Gifts can be made by check, stocks, bonds, retirement distribution, life insurance policies and personal property. There are tax advantages to giving assets that have appreciated in value. Please consult your financial and/or tax advisor for more information. Please feel free to fill out the pledge card below.
