Capital Campaign Updates Here!

logo-vectorMarch 6, 2017

Dear Friends of St. Paul’s, Ivy,

Thank you so much to everyone who has contributed to the Capital Campaign. To date, 107 households have contributed $840,945, 70% of our $1.2 million goal. While that is a great start, we still have a ways to go.

As our vestry and staff meet the challenges of the new year, it is incumbent upon us all to properly care for the facilities we are blessed with so that we can attract wonderful people to work, worship, and thrive at our church.  A connected and supportive parish speaks volumes to anyone looking for a church home.

If you have not already contributed, we hope that as the campaign winds down, you will prayerfully consider giving whatever amount is comfortable for you and your family. Just as important as reaching our ultimate campaign goal is having a100% participation from our parish so that we can all feel a part of this effort.

If you have questions about the campaign, please contact any of us or Rev. Eric Liles and we would be happy to meet with you in person or communicate via email or phone. Thank you again for your consideration and your support of St. Paul’s Ivy and for being a Part of Our Story.

Warm regards,

Carolyn Achenbach and Pam Edmonds, Co-Chairs, Capital Campaign Committee
David Cooke, II and Scott Gillespie, Solicitations
The Rev. Dr. Eric J. Liles, Rector


We truly enjoy the beauty of our church home and value what we do here. We understand the importance of a safe and well-maintained campus to support our faithful work. As we have carefully considered our way forward over the past year with studies, in-depth strategic planning, surveys and town hall meetings, our parish has overwhelmingly acknowledged the need to renovate and remodel Kirklea, improve the parking areas and address accessibility. To accomplish this work, our vestry has approved a capital campaign with a goal of 1.2 million. Thank you for being a part of our St. Paul’s story and for participating in all of the work has brought us to this point.

Our goal of $1.2 million will include:

Renovation of Kirklea
new roof
new siding shingles
new, more efficient HVAC system
new insulation
electrical and structural upgrades to meet code
improvements to bathrooms
insulated windows
improved layout
additional storage and work space
upgraded lighting
repaired masonry

Repair of Parking Lot

Improvements to Accessibility
Addition of elevator to existing shaft structure to provide access between church levels and to Kirklea
