Church Expansion Donation

"My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations.”(Isaiah 56:7b)

Dear coworkers in Christ Jesus,

Twenty years ago we dedicated our current church building by God’s grace to be used as a “House of Prayer for All Nations.” Since then, God has faithfully used Washington UBF to serve the gospel both locally and globally. Our humble church has been growing at home with our new Baby Bible Fellowship (BBF) and student team meetings while also responding to the Great Commission by sending short-term and long-term missionaries to spread the good news of Jesus to the ends of the earth. From the University of Maryland, to campuses up and down the mid-Atlantic region, to Belize, Mexico, China, Germany, Mongolia, South Africa, and Taiwan, we are seeing how God has used us to positively influence our communities by teaching the Bible, training young church leaders, and sharing God’s love with others.

As the diversity of our ministry has increased, the need for more space to support these ministries has comparably grown. Although our core mission of college evangelism remains unchanged and stronger than ever, we recognize the growing needs of young mothers and babies, the importance of providing room for our youth, and the benefit of fellowship space for all of our members. We pray that especially our students will come to view the church as more than just a Sunday destination, but will view it as a place of community where they can come daily to pray, study, and fellowship with brothers and sisters.

To accomplish these goals, we have begun the process of expanding our church and need your support to make it happen. Currently, in addition to prayer, as part of our year-long fundraising campaign, we are asking for your financial contribution to our Building Fund with the goal of raising $200,000. We began to receive contributions from July 2012 and so far God blessed Washington coworkers to contribute $100,000. God moved our hearts when one student contributed $5000 out of her poor pocket. It is the work of 5 loaves and 2 fish. "Here is a boy with five small barley loaves and two small fish, but how far will they go among so many?" (John 6:9) We know God will bless your contributions like 5 loaves and 2 fish to bless 40,000 University of Maryland students. We can build it brick by brick with your help. When completed, we will have 5000 sq feet spaces and 40 more parking lots. We need to raise additional $100,000 as the cost of parking lot doubled unexpectedly beyond estimates. Your tax-deductible contribution will further our church’s ability to serve future missionaries and leaders, and continue for generations as a “house of prayer for all nations”.
