Today a group of congregants gathered in the Sanctuary for a Sanctuary Blessing led by Moriah Salzman, giving thanks for the many ways it has served this congregation in the past and the many ways it will serve us in the years ahead. Thanks to all who participated!
Today Rev. Mark Fisk led a meeting for congregants who wanted to learn more about the possibility of investing in Re-innovating Unity of Mesa by lending money to the Church. Rev. Mark discussed the lending terms the Church had received from banks and explained that individual investors would receive similar terms, with five-year promissory notes earning 3.5 - 4.0% interest secured by the Church property. Potential investors were given handouts to return to Rev. Mark, on which the potential investors can indicate their preferred lending terms. The Church wants to confirm that there are indications of interest totaling at least the $300,000 needed to complete our re-innovation projects. The Church is also consulting with a lawyer to identify and draft the appropriate legal documents.
For more information, see the Re-innovating Unity of Mesa brochure.
