Building Fund Update
We read in Exodus that when Moses received the Ten Commandments and the rest of the Law, there were directions on building the Tabernacle, its contents and the priestly garments. In Exodus 35, Moses asked the people of a generous heart to contribute to the building fund with supplies and skilled labour.
20 Then all the congregation of the people of Israel departed from the presence of Moses. 21 And they came, everyone whose heart stirred him, and everyone whose spirit moved him, and brought the Lord's contribution to be used for the tent of meeting, and for all its service, and for the holy garments. (Exodus 35:20-21)
The people gave generously to the point that there were more than enough resources to get the work completed. In Exodus 36:6 Moses had to tell the people to stop giving.
6 So Moses gave command, and word was proclaimed throughout the camp, “Let no man or woman do anything more for the contribution for the sanctuary.” So the people were restrained from bringing, 7 for the material they had was sufficient to do all the work, and more. (Exodus 36:6-7)
As treasurer, I want to thank the congregation for your contributions to the Building Fund. We currently have more than enough to handle the necessary repairs/renovations. You will still be seeing improvements continuing over the next few months.
