The AFLC General Fund (Coordinating Committee) has purchased the adjoining property (1.2 acres) to the AFLC in Plymouth, MN with a purchase price of $650,000. In December, 2017 the General Fund acquired a loan of $315,000. God has been providing for the purchase of this property through many gifts from both individuals and congregations. Thanks to those gifts we have already been able to save over $47,800 in interest!! The balance due on the loan is roughly $222,000. Please keep this project in your prayers. If you would like to give a gift for this purchase, please designate "Charles Property Purchase" on your check. You may also donate online. For more information on the property please contact Development Director, Tonnes Pollestad ([email protected]).
