Sharing meals is a fundamental means of caring for and including one another in fellowship and in the formation of community.  The table is often at the heart of our giving thanks and is a reminder of the Lord’s table. Cedarkirk’s future growth is hindered by the physical capacity and arrangement of the existing dining hall. The dining hall limits the number of guests and the manner in which they can be served, which constrains the ministry of hospitality that has been enjoyed at Cedarkirk for the last 45 years.  To address these challenges and better minister to those we serve, we are excited to embark on this capital campaign.


WHY ARE WE BUILDING?

  • The current dining hall (Cedar Lodge) presents challenging access for persons with mobility issues.
  • Existing dining facilities can no longer accommodate increasing demand.
  • Meeting space is extremely limited for programmatic and guest use.

WHAT ARE WE BUILDING?

  • New single-level dining hall (with 250 seat capacity).
  • Centralized office and administrative space.
  • Renovations to Cedar Lodge for enhanced meeting space.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

With an eye towards sustainability in the future, this 4 million dollare capital campaign focuses on improving the accessibility of our buildings and expanding our facilities so that we may better minister to those we serve. We are so grateful for the privilege of being a blessing in the lives of so many children, youth, and adults. We invite you to consider partnering with Cedarkirk in our effort to strengthen this unique ministry. This campaign includes the opportunity to give at many levels. You may give a one-time contribution, but you may also consider making a financial commitment over three years. Such a pledge allows one to spread out a gift over several years of support. In addition to cash gifts, Cedarkirk can also receive some non-cash assets such as stock, investments, etc. In addition to your consideration of a financial gift, please let us know if there are fellow friends of Cedarkirk who might be interested in learning more about this opportunity. As always, thank you for your support and prayers for Cedarkirk’s ministry. For more information about Cedarkirk’s Capital Campaign, please contact Rev. John Reiter, Executive Director, at john@cedarkirk.org or Julie Poulin, Capital Campaign Director, at campaign@cedarkirk.org.
