“How can we interest more of the community to attend church with us?” Fairview’s first answer was to pray and make sure the reasons for inviting more people to their church were God’s reasons. When their spirit was right, their minds and bodies went into action.
Fairview not only broke ground for a new, brick-and-mortar structure, they also established a positive future for their church—a future filled with sharing God’s love and His Word with those in the Fairview Community.
Pastor Sharon Taylor of Fairview UMC shared, “Some of the pluses were that the closing costs would be minimal, and the current loan rates were comparable to other lending institutions. The defining reason, however, for choosing the Loan Fund was that United Methodists would be handling our loan so we felt confident that our best interests would always be in good hands.”
The Loan Fund was permitted to minister to the needs of this wonderful congregation by implementing the combined support of hundreds of United Methodist investors. We thank God that this congregation builds on yesterday to break ground for tomorrow!
