We are happy to have our Hope and a Future campaign updates running on our new screen in the foyer. But more than that, we are thrilled to announce that we have raised $1.5 million since March 2015! (cue cheers and applause). The excitement about our new building continues to build, as we are on target to have visited all our returning VCS families by November 30th.
And, as we are well into the school year, it's time to announce our new milestone for 2015/16: We hope to raise an additional $2 million by March 31st, 2016. It's a bold prediction, but we are encouraged by all the prayer and giving that has brought us so far in such a short time. We likewise continue to move forward in our search for a temporary location, and in securing the financing for this project. Reaching this milestone will keep us on schedule for a new K - 12 VCS for January 2018.
Please continue to pray with us, and to consider what your pledge will be. Thank you to all those families who have already given to this campaign. Your gift is more than just a contribution to our new building; it is a meaningful connection to the families of the past, who gave sacrificially to build the VCS of today, and to the students VCS will serve in the future.
