Praise Report: Burning the Mortgage at Church of the Savior
Church of the Savior - mortgage burning
Diocesan Commu… Thursday, February 23, 2023 - 3:00pm

On February 12, Church of the Savior in Ambridge, PA, held a ceremony to burn their now-paid-off mortgage papers in the alley behind their church. This financial feat was made possible by a capital campaign initiated in 2017, which raised over $350,000 in just five years—45% coming from Church of the Savior’s members and the remainder from outside donors—enough to fund much-needed upgrades to the building and to pay off the remainder of their $404,000 mortgage years earlier than expected.
