WHAT IS HOPE ON HOLLY?

Hope On Holly is the campaign to rebuild our church on the corner of Holly St and 13th Street after the tornado of March 3, 2020. We are working together to plan and replace our historic church with a building that will have the feeling and atmosphere of the old, but the safety and accessibility of the new. Within this goal is the desire to provide a place of worship that will reflect the personality of our congregation, blend in with the historic East End Neighborhood, and respect the need for upgrades and improvements that were lacking in the past. 

CAMPAIGN INFORMATION

CAMPAIGN GOAL

The goal of the Hope On Holly campaign is to raise a minimum of $1,000,000.00 to go toward the funding of our building project.

 

-East End UMC's building project has an approximate total budget of $11,000,000.

-After the tornado East End UMC received approximately $4,900,000.

-East End UMC expects to receive substantial assistance from FEMA's Private NonProfit Assistance Program, which funds 75% of the gap between an insurance payout and the total cost of a rebuild project. This leaves EEUMC with need to raise and/or finance approximately $1,500,000 to fund the building project.

-A minimum of $1,000,000 will ensure that East End UMC funds the project without incurring substantial debt.

 

 

 

 

BUILDING PROJECT

East End UMC's Building Committee is currently working through a schematic design process led by EOA Architects.

 

This committee, which was elected by the East End UMC Administrative Council in August of 2020, will provide updates on proposed designs and budgets as soon as updates are able to be given. 

 

The Building Committee does not make decisions for the church, but works to make recommendations for the church to consider for approval.
