Update from Rejuvenate 190 - September 17, 2017
We are so delighted to be able to update everyone on our progress towards our goal of raising $190,000 by our 190th anniversary in April 2018. When we add the monies that were made available through our designated funds, we now have raised more than $178,000. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Your generosity is inspiring.
We are waiting to hear how our project may be impacted by the steeple fire but are confident that we will meet any goal set before us. Praise God, together we've almost reached our goal! Thanks again for your support.

Rejuvenate 190 Campaign St. Andrew's Guelph 2016 – 2018

In 2018, St. Andrew's Guelph will be celebrating its 190th year as a community of faith in the City of Guelph. As a part of our celebrations, we have launched a three-year campaign to raise $190,000 to restore our historic and picturesque sanctuary. If we exceed our goal, we will rejoice by sharing our good fortune with the wider community in some tangible way yet to be determined… so here's to raising more than we need to accomplish our goal!

What are we raising $190,000 for?

1. Replacing our Sanctuary Roof
|| This project has been completed under budget.

2. Steeple Repairs
|| Repairs are underway with completion in the Spring.

3. Plaster Repairs in the Sanctuary
|| Now that a new roof is in place, we have proceeded
|| with this project.

4. Upgrading the Sound System
|| Our sound system is showing its age and requires some
|| upgrades so that all can effectively hear the goings on at
|| St. Andrew's through the week and on Sunday mornings.

5. Replacement of the sanctuary flooring
|| The carpet has suffered from leaks, tears and wear over the
|| years.|It is time to replace the flooring for the sake of safety
|| and aesthetics. |

You can be a part of history in the making…

Your support of our campaign will ensure that our community will continue to have a special place to practice our faith for many years to come…

Your support will bring delight to families who come to St. Andrew's to mark significant occasions in their lives whether that be weddings, baptisms, or funerals…

Your support will mean that our City will have a beautiful and well cared for space to hold special events, concerts, gatherings to create memories that will last…

So join us in seeking to exceed our goal of $190,000… so that we can bless others in our community with the generosity of those who have supported our campaign.

As of mid-December 2017, we have raised more than $178,000. We are so grateful for the fantastic response to our campaign thus far. It won't be long until we exceed our expectations!

The Rejuvenate 190 Team are looking ahead…
with some exciting plans for FUN and fundraising… so keep an eye out for them.

One event that we are just beginning to plan for… and are really excited about is…
REUNION SUNDAY Open House in May of next year (2018).
We will be inviting 'friends of St. Andrew's' to this special occasion.
We hope to have a number of past members and special guests attend.
There will be FOOD, music, displays of our past, and a silent auction.
More details will be available in the Fall.

You can still contribute to the Campaign…
all donations are TAX RECEIPTABLE…

Contributions can be made:
• In person, to our Administrator during office hours…
• by joining us for worship on Sunday mornings at 10:30AM… and placing your gift in the offering plate…
• or by mail…
Please make cheques payable to St. Andrew's Guelph and write Rejuvenate 190 in the memo line.

Thanks again,
The Rejuvenate 190 Team
