God has led UMM to the city of Williamsport, PA, to start another school and partner with an existing congregation, Newberry Christian Fellowship. NCF was started by East District Mennonite Church. UMM plans to first begin a preschool and daycare and later add an elementary school. There is a prime building located in Newberry, which Newberry Christian Fellowship currently owns. Their desire is to sell the property to UMM, and an agreement is in place for that. We are asking that you pray about how God would lead you to be involved in this exciting new work. Our goal is to raise $260,000 by March 15, 2020, which will allow UMM to purchase the building and make improvements for the start of the school year in September, 2020. Originally, the board set the deadline for January 31, 2020 for these funds, but NCF has recently agreed to extend that to March 15, 2020. We currently have a matching fund in place where business owners have graciously pledged $130,000. This will double anything you give up to $130,000. We trust that God will provide the funds through His people and that this project will bring Jesus’ love to many families in Williamsport for His honor and glory. Thank you for your prayers and support!
