CUMC Capital Campaign 2
Carlisle UMC built a new church in 2020. God has been faithful in hearing every prayer and taking every offering to make our new church at 333 South Spring Garden Street, Carlisle, PA possible.
Nine years ago we embarked in faith on a journey of mission and ministry together, and committed to living like Jesus. We prayed, dreamed and gave generously. God has been faithful in hearing every prayer and taking every offering to make our new church possible.
"Moving in Faith" is the theme of our second campaign led by Debbie & Rick Washinger. Moving in Faith is about:
- moving locations and into a new community/area of town with opportunities for ministry indoors and outdoors.
- moving in ministry, building upon our current ministry offerings and expanding ministries to meet new needs, serve new people, and raise up new disciples of Jesus.
- moving in faith, building on the successful first capital campaign as we seek to pay off the remaining $5.9 million owed on our new church building.
about our campaign
During the campaign in August-September 2020, many pieces were shared about the history, plans and excitement for our future ahead. The formal campaign kick-off was delayed from March 2020 due to COVID-19.
Pastor Jim (retired) & Pastor Mira kick off the campaign with a video sharing CUMC's history and their excitement for Moving in Faith. This was taped in winter 2020 prior to campaign delay due to COVID-19.
Devotional Book - CUMC members and friends share 21 devotions about God's moving in their lives and excitement for our new church. PDF version.
Detailed Brochure - shares the history of God's leading in and through this project; vision for the future; the needing funding; and FAQs. PDF version.
Creative Strategies - contains many ideas about giving - from reducing times you eat out to using RMDs as part of making a commitment to Moving in Faith and CUMC's ministry. PDF version.
Commitment Card - the culmination of 21 days of prayer, learning about the mission and vision of CUMC in our new church home, and listening to God speaking to your heart. The congregation gave their commitments on our first worship in the new church, September 20, 2020. As the CUMC family grows, or personal financial situations change, we continue to collect commitment cards for Moving in Faith. Printed cards or online commitments are always welcome to help CUMC Move in Faith today and into the future.
