NCG - Rental Assistance Update
This past Sunday, I was at St. Christopher’s Catholic Church with Nevadans for the Common Good (NCG) This church is in a low-income area in North Las Vegas and we were there to talk about rental assistance. There are 6 Masses, 4 in Spanish and 2 in English. At the end of the mass the congregation was informed that we were outside and were available for help. Also, on this Sunday, the church was having a rummage sale, a food festival of authentic food from Mexico and the Philippines (I bought both) and music.
There were some concerns of course, but what I saw was people with hope. Pastor Mary has been talking to us about hope and there is nothing more powerful than to see God’s people living out this hope.
NCG will continue to meet with Clark County staff and the County Commissioners to keep this issue in their sight.
Please continue to pray.

Refinance of the Church Mortgage:
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
I kindly ask you place our church in your prayers over the next several weeks. We are in the process of refinancing our mortgage and although it looks good, until the process is completed nothing is for certain. To give you an update of how beneficial the refinance is to our finances.
**We currently owe for an additional 18 years. With the refinance it will drop to 15 years.
**We will save more than $5,000 per month in payment which equates to $60,000+ annually.
**We currently pay an additional Interest Swap fee every quarter; new loan - no fee.
Savings of thousands annually.
**Interest rate will be cut in half.
**This loan is amortized over 15 years and payable over 15 years.
**We won't be in the position to have to redo the loan every 10 years.
We are applying thru Christian Community Credit Union and they specialize in church loans. Our loan officer has given us the thumbs up, now we just have to get to the other side. If you have any questions kindly call your Church Treasurer, Wanda Shumar at 702-525-1734 or email her at email@example.com
Thank you and God Bless GVUMC!
