As a child, all I ever wanted to do is play sports. I use to think it was for my benefit but now I know it was to serve the next generation. I’m the pastor at Rock Church and our congregation heart’s desire is to make the City of Franklin and Southampton County a better place. I also had the privilege to be the varsity head coach in basketball and soccer, at Franklin High School, for the past 15 years. Rock Church has been serving this area for over 41 years. Now, we want to build a gymnasium for our community, school, and church.
There is such a need for a gym in our area because there is no access to gymnasiums unless you obtain a membership. And unfortunately, the Franklin Parks and Rec Gymnasium was shut down two years ago. We are excited about solving a major issue for our community and your support is key in solving this problem. While we already bought the land, and raised $150,000 for architect and engineering plans, we still need $1,500,000 to complete this project. We need your help to accomplish this goal of raising these funds and forever changing the lives of the next generation.
You can help build this gymnasium that will serve the community, school, and church with sports camps, sports leagues, an emergency shelter, food distribution center, meeting center, etc. The Rock Church has submitted the site work plans to the city. We are looking to break ground this June!!
Would you consider partnering with us and donating a one-time amount or jumping on board our monthly pledge initiative? Please review the Rock Church pledge card and see where you can partner with us. We believe, that with your help, we can raise $1,000,000 in the first year!
We thank you in advance for your support! Your tax-deductible donation is greatly appreciated and 100% of your gift will be used to build this gym. You can either donate online at www.buildthegym.com, or follow steps on your pledge card and use the pre-stamped envelope included in this packet.
With warm regards,
P.S. We can’t thank you enough for believing in us!!
