153 Days Left%2F%2FBlog PostThere are only 153 days until Hope City publicly opens its doors for the first time!

It is so exciting!  153 days may seem like a lot of time to you, but January 22nd will be here before you know it, and we’ve got a lot of work left to do!

We have been hard at work with an incredible launch team.  You would be so proud of this group of people–I know I AM!  This team is focused on what is ahead, not where we’ve been.  They have a heart to see the city of Sarasota changed by the gospel of Jesus, and I am so proud of them!

But we can’t do this alone!

This would be impossible without you!  We need your prayers and your financial help.  Our launch team is giving sacrificially and together with your help we have received almost $130,000.  This means that we have a gap of $70,000 left before we accomplish our goal.

Will you consider making a financial gift to help support Hope City today?  As Pastor Bill Hybels says, “Maybe God has afflicted you with affluence”,  would you consider how you can help make that $70,000 gap shrink?  Every dollar matters… and will be used in the mission of reaching people here in our city, because every person matters.  Our launch fund is exclusively used for purchasing equipment, but that equipment is used exclusively to see more people hear the word of God. It is all about people.

In the next few weeks we will be starting to secure the resources that we will use for church every week; computers, screens, projectors, kids equipment–everything we need for our kids environments, our main auditorium, and for our lobby.
