Salt Church Building Bulletin No.6

News

A very big THANK YOU to everyone who is helping to paint our lovely new Church x

Pastor's Wife's Piece!

I hope you are finding this weekly bulletin helpful and informative.

It was suggested we produce one as several people were asking about the building work and fund-raising progress.

If you have any suggestions relating to the Church building that might be included in this Bulletin please let Jacqui or myself know by email.

Dios te bendiga (God bless you).

Building Update!

  • We are so blessed! God has given us a building that week by week is being transformed from a dusty old warehouse into a beautiful Church which we pray will glorify Jesus!!

  • The ‘Restroom’ areas are taking on personality and interest.

  • The creche and stationery office have doors and windows and more areas around the building have being painted by some of our own folk, such as the entrance ceiling and the railings leading upstairs from the office entrance lobby.

  • Kids Church beautifully painted with brightly coloured bean bags (above).

A very big THANK YOU to everyone who is helping to paint our lovely new Church x

Pastor's Piece

When a project like this is undertaken the challenges and strains are many and varied for all concerned.

I appreciate so much all those who have ‘put their backs’ into working hard to make this a reality. You know who you are! Without members of Salt Church being involved, this project would not be finished.

We still have a way to go and more help will be needed with painting etc. soon! Watch this space!
God bless,  Chris

Building Update!

  • The toilet facilities are progressing well with floor tiles laid and additional ‘sit down’ cubicle walls now built!

  • The walls for a Creche and a photocopier/stationery storeroom are going up as you can see in the photo above. 

  • Initially we thought this work would be done after we moved in as part of phase 2.  On reflection it was decided that in order to minimise further mess and disruption it should start now.

Our EGM on 13th July voted in our new name as SALT CHURCH with 73.3% in agreement. I have written a separate detailed congregational letter sent to everyone on our e-mail list.

This marks another milestone in our journey to a new location, a new building, a new vision and now a new name.

We want to impact the whole region for Jesus, to be the SALT of the earth to those around us and call them to join the body of Christ His CHURCH……SALT CHURCH!  Amen.  Chris

Philippians 3:13-14 …one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead. I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

Pastor's Piece

Vision is the received revelation of God.

It’s usually a journey, not just a destination.

Vision requires faith and trust in God. We do not know the future BUT He does. I believe we can perceive it and receive it spiritually and act on it in the here and now. This is what we are doing. It’s exciting. Keep moving forward.
Chris

Vision (noun)

1. the faculty or state of being able to see.Power of seeing, observation, perception, visual perception

2. the ability to think about or plan the future with imagination or wisdom.

Imagination, creativity, inspiration, perception, breadth of view, foresight, discernment, far-sightedness.

Financial Story

THE FINANCIAL REASONS WHY WE ARE DOING WHAT WE ARE DOING

Staying in our current building means a monthly rent (including IVA Tax) from June 2019 of €4,840 pcm increasing by 5% per annum means that over the next 10 years we will have to pay €730,523 in Rent.

God is good and we are partnering with Him in this venture

WE HAVE A MORTGAGE OFFER

Our bank has offered 60% over a 12-year term. We had hoped for a 70% mortgage over 15 years so our initial estimate of needing €208,000 has now risen.

WHAT THIS MEANS?

 

Budget:

€480,000 to buy

+ €14,400 costs

+ €50,000 initial renovation

We will completely own our new building

…totalling €544,400, paid off in 12 years.

Kingdom Story

THE KINGDOM REASONS WHY WE ARE DOING WHAT WE ARE DOING

The church is not a building made with bricks and concrete … it is of people united in Jesus Christ in the power of Holy Spirit building God’s kingdom.

Over one third of our congregation have become Christians in their later years proving that there is a harvest field among the Multi-national, English-speaking ex-pat community on the Costa Blanca South whom we serve.

Jesus said “The field is white unto harvest” (John 4:35) and TCF is well placed to bring the good news of Jesus Christ to a wide area surrounding Torrevieja.

A larger population from the key English-speaking areas can access the new building location quicker and easier than at present.
TCF will be a Strategic Bible Believing Evangelical Christian Centre for the whole region. We will impact the area with the Gospel.

We will completely own our new building

…totalling €544,400 in 12 years.

Final Countdown … The Last Hurdle

NEW BUILDING UPDATE!

To all the amazing and wonderful people of TCF and to all those associated with TCF we are excited because buying our own building is now within our grasp.
