Dear Friends and Neighbors,
The kids are getting out of school soon in anticipation of a glorious summer break. As the members of the Fryeburg New Church ends another year of worship, Sunday school and community outreach, we are reflecting on our 137 years of service to Fryeburg and surrounding communities. It is important to remember the reasons the Fryeburg New Church has opened its building, pocket books, kitchen and programs to help local residents and nearby towns. Love, Wisdom and Charity are cornerstones of our belief.
Our founding members used these cornerstones and combined them with Action to build the church and, more importantly, the community that we worship in today. Their strong foundation lives on today as a wonderful family of friends and neighbors who work together and give their time and talents to a greater good. We live in a very giving community and benefit from our fundraising at the Fryeburg Fair, which allows us to give back generously. While this keeps us thriving, we need your support to continue to build and to grow. Your help plays a large part in our ability to make a difference in the lives of many in our community.
Past Capital Funds have allowed us to complete a number of projects—a new furnace and chimney for the church, new carpeting for the chapel and foyer,new windows in the Parsonage, a beautiful new tile floor in the church kitchen and dining room, the elevator, a renovation to the church bathroom to make it handicap accessible, and a new furnace for our Parsonage. We are also in the process of making structural repairs to the belfry and roof. A Capital Campaign is a separate fund from our daily operations and provides a source of funds to preserve our historic buildings for generations to come.
While our foundation is strong, our list of expenses continues to grow. We will need approximately $25,000 to continue to cover these necessary projects.
What will you give to help maintain and grow your Church? Please consider deeply what a donation to this campaign will do for you, our church, and our surrounding community - now and in the future.
