Your Support Needed to Cross the Finish Line

We are pleased to announce the new Mpls Campus James Avenue addition is substantially complete. Furnish-ings have been moved in, and choir rehearsals are beginning. A grand opening celebration will be held in the spring.

The West Campus also has undergone a big transformation — the old administration building was removed, a beautiful new parking lot with 97 new stalls emerged, and major grading prepared the site for construction of the new addition to begin in May.

Your support is needed to cross the finish line. If you have given or pledged – thank you so much! If you have not supported yet, please contact Mari Carlson 612.821.3150 Gifts of all sizes are needed and appreciated. You are blessed to be a blessing. Thank you!
