Our New Synagogue?
Building Purchase Update:
After a complete inspection of the property at 8800 Summit and much prayer and a consultation meeting Sunday April 20th 2015, the leadership decided to make a counter offer of less than the asking price for the property at 8800 Summit with the contingency that we fund-raise enough to purchase for cash.
The seller responded that he is firm on the price of $425,000 regardless of extensive repair findings, and did not accept our offer. However, when the seller went on to their next prospective buyers, they discovered that they were unable to make an offer at this time. So the seller came back to us and said that if we were still interested we should make a reasonable offer.
At this point we feel that we should call for a 3-day fasting and prayer time and wait on Adoni for His wisdom, direction and on giving us unity in our decision making. We will have a congregational meeting on Wednesday May 20th to further discuss the purchase and disclose new information that we have discovered.
We are excited that we may have found a building that seems just right for us to have a wonderful Messianic Jewish synagogue home and outreach base!
The sanctuary is rated for 283, with room to dance, and the oneg room is rated for 383. There are 7 classroom, as opposed to our current 2, and it’s totally handicap accessible. Click here for more pictures of 8800 Summit.
It can be “messianized” aesthetically pretty easily. It’s a little north of the core of our demographic, but not much, and in a nice neighborhood with 2.5 acres! The asking price is $425,000, plus we’ll need about $150,000 for immediate upgrades and remodeling. As of April 12, 2015 there is $133,000 in our building fund. We are believing that G-d will help us raise the whole amount CASH within 90 days!! At a minimum we need to pay $200,000 for closing, tentatively May 5th.
