LBC Property Purchase Update

photo

At our recent Partner Dinner, the LifeBridge partners took a huge step together to purchase our current meeting space along with the entire 22,000 sq. ft. building, 5 acre complex. We believe that this is a significant step to bridge the gap for more people in the Acworth/Kennesaw community from where they are to where God wants them to be.

We have signed a contract and the sale is in process. We are now accepting donations to our Building Fund to help cover $60,000 for bank required savings and closing costs.

Here is a Quick Property Purchase Q&A:

Q. What does the purchase include?

A. 22,434 sq. ft. building and 5.156 acres of land located at 3102 Loring Rd Kennesaw, GA

Q. What is the purchase price?

A. $1,930,000

Q. What are the advantages of Purchasing vs. Renting?

A. If we decide to purchase we could secure the property for future growth/expansion. We could not duplicate a similar facility in a similar location for the purchase price. The other tenants rent will help to offset part of the monthly carrying costs.

Q. What is the property value?

A. The property is valued at $2.2MM according to the Cobb County Tax Assessors office.

Q. What are the loan terms?

A. 6 year term with a 20 year amortization @ 5.5% with an estimated payment of $13,300 per month.

Q. What is the down payment to close?

A. Normally a lender will require 20% or more down payment. Our lender is counting the funds we have already put into the building as our equity. The only funds we will need to cover will be closing costs (approx. $20,000) and 3 months of payments in a dedicated savings account (approx. $40,000).

If you have further questions regarding the property purchase or how to give to the Building Fund, email our Financial Secretary, Tedi at tpetito@mylifebridgechurch.com.

4 Ways to Fight Temptation

4 ways to fight leaderblogbut each person is tempted when they are dragged away by their own evil desire and enticed. Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death. – James 1:14-15

 

James is laying out a “roadmap” for how we fall into sin. Sin doesn’t just happen by accident.

New Series: Step Up // Aug 3

The will of God is not an insurance plan. It’s a daring plan. The complete surrender of your life to the cause of Christ isn’t radical. It’s normal. It’s time to quit living as if the purpose of life is to arrive safely at death. It’s time to Step Up and experience the great privilege of sacrifice for the one who sacrificed everything for us. It’s time to Step Up, laying it all on the line to become the community of Christ followers God desires us to be.
