(A Dollar-for-Dollar Mortgage Payoff Plan)

Fort King Presbyterian Church has received bequests from two members who have recently passed away. In light of this, the Finance Ministry proposed to the Session that we undertake paying off our church mortgage. The mortgage balance is $41,306.74 as of April 30, 2106.

Paying off the mortgage at this time will ensure that we have additional funds to support our mission programs and that we continue to meet the other needs of our church. The Session voted to match “dollar-for-dollar” all contributions from the congregation that are designated as “mortgage payoff”.

The Matching $$$ Program begins May 1st and extends through June 30th. We ask that you prayerfully consider an additional gift, or gifts, designated for the “mortgage payoff” during our Matching $$$ Program. Any amount given to our Matching $$$ Program will be greatly appreciated. Remember, each $1 you give equals $2 for the payoff of the mortgage.

Specially marked envelopes are available each Sunday for cash and check contributions. Please make your checks payable to Fort King Presbyterian Church and indicate “Mortgage Payoff” or “M$P” on the check. Place the contribution envelopes in the offering plate or mail them to Fort King Presbyterian Church.

THANK YOU, in advance, of your support for the Matching $$$ Program.





Presbyterians trace their history to the 16th century and the Protestant Reformation. Our heritage, and much of what we believe, began with the French lawyer John Calvin (1509-1564), whose writings crystallized much of the Reformed thinking that came before him.

Calvin did much of his writing from Geneva, Switzerland. From there, the Reformed movement spread to other parts of Europe and the British Isles. Many of the early Presbyterians in America came from England, Scotland and Ireland. The first American Presbytery was organized at Philadelphia in 1706. The first General Assembly was held in the same city in 1789. The first Assembly was convened by the Rev. John Witherspoon, the only minister to sign the Declaration of Independence.
