Large Payment Made on Loan
You may be aware that 2 or 3 times a year we are able to make extra payments on our loan for the 2010 Expansion that included the Auditorium and Children’s Wing. This month – in addition to our regular $14,000 payment – we are able to make an additional payment of $48,000 on the loan. The $48,000 comes from the “Laying Bricks for Jesus” envelopes, from the Mortgage Contingency Fund and from the Church Auction held last week.
The balance of the loan stood at $122,078 at the end of September. With a total of $62,000 paid on the loan in October, only $60,000 will remain on what began as a 1.3 million dollar loan. We are giving thanks to God for providing us with the funds to make these payments.
