The building project is well on it’s way and it’s exciting to watch the progress as the work on the metal roof has begun. At Sunday’s meeting, members voted unanimously in support of redoing the flat roof in addition to the work that had been approved in March. With additional funds coming from our savings, we will be able to complete the full project with a revised fundraising goal of $295,000. We are excited that our donations/pledges total over $252,000 and we are well on our way to this goal. If you wish to make a donation please use the link below. A huge thanks to the Facilities team for all the hard work they have been putting into this project.

Fundraising Progress as of July 22, 2021.

Rachel Loewen is available to help answer any questions you might have about giving methods. Call her at the office at (204) 325-8322 or by email at rachel@winklermb.com.

What if I cannot give right now?

We totally understand that not everyone has the financial margin to give “over and above” or “extra” funds. We have always upheld the freedom to say “not at this time” or “no thank you” to any giving opportunities.

Should I reduce my regular giving to support the campaign?

Please do not. Our church has a ministry-focused general fund budget that depends on the faithful financial support of our congregation. Capital campaign giving is “over and above” giving.

How will financial progress be reported to the congregation?

We will communicate updates at our worship services, through WMBC News, and on our website throughout the campaign.
