Current Builder's Call

Fall Builder's Call 2017







First United Methodist Church in Clarinda, Iowa is “Loving. Serving. More than just a building.”

Our Fall 2017 Builder’s Call is to assist Clarinda, First in financing the construction of their new handicapped accessible church that includes a welcome center, 200-seat sanctuary, several classrooms and a large ministry center/multi-purpose room that will give them an opportunity to open their doors to all in their community.

The old building was constructed in the 1880s and had become a burden because of mounting costs of repair and maintenance. The largest issue was that the old building was not handicapped accessible and was actually keeping people away and hindering their ability to make new disciples of Jesus Christ.

The Builder’s Call has played an important role in outreach and revitalization in the Iowa Annual Conference for years. Congregations and Builders from across Iowa are invited to contribute to these projects, which include additions to current churches, as well as the building needs of new faith communities.

Your generosity will be a great gift to Clarinda, First United Methodist Church.
