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.

Scripture repeatedly states that at the end of days there will be great spiritual revival that will be energized by the restoration of the Jewish people to their Messiah. The apostle Paul prophesied, “For if their rejection [of the Messiah] is the reconciliation of the world, what will their acceptance be, but life from the dead?” Rom 11:15

Jewish people who come to faith in Messiah, but don’t abandon their calling to honor the covenants God made with Abraham, Moses, and David, fulfill this promise, and bring “life from the dead” to all the world!  Other scriptures about this are Jeremiah 50:4-5; Ezekiel 39:28-29; Joel 2:28-29; Zechariah 12:10.  This is of course a literal understanding of “Israel” as the physical descendants of Abraham.  Paul emphasizes in Romans 11.28-31 they are loved for the Patriarchs' sake, for God's free gifts and his calling are irrevocable. Just as you yourselves were disobedient to God before but have received mercy now because of Isra'el's disobedience; so also Isra'el has been disobedient now, so that by your showing them the same mercy that God has shown you, they too may now receive God's mercy.

For those who’ve not visited our current facility, right now our outreach is hindered by the building we are renting. Its steep and narrow stairs are difficult for those with limited walking ability to get up to the sanctuary, and the bathrooms are back down those stairs.  Classroom space is inadequate, as is the oneg/fellowship room. The aging building also has continuing maintenance challenges and associated expenses.  As tenants, it’s onerous for us to bear the repairs.  The aesthetics don’t make an attractive Jewish presentation.

If it’s not too forward to quote a relevant but forceful scripture, please note this appeal is further motivated by the thoughts of the Apostle Paul, when he was taking an offering for the Jews in Jerusalem.  He said to the Roman Gentile Christians, “For if the Gentiles have shared in the Jews' spiritual blessings, they owe it to the Jews to share with them their material blessings” (Rom. 15:27 NIV).
