Front Door Shares: Why Buy?

After G2G and G2G2, the Columbia family is so close to reaching our pledge goal of $10.5 million in order to break ground.  To close the remaining gap of $1.1 million, we’re selling Front Door Shares.


Front Door Shares offer anyone affiliated with Columbia an opportunity to be part of opening our new front door. So why should you buy a share?

Columbia Is Your Temporary Church Home

Perhaps you and your family are only going to be at Columbia for a short time due to your job assignment. The Columbia community is blessed to have many State Department, Military or other families serving in the metro area for a short time. Buying shares to help open our new front door allows you to give but takes away the commitment of pledging over three years.

Columbia Was Your Church Home 

Are you a Columbian who has moved away for retirement or job relocation? If you remember Columbia fondly and would like to participate in G2G2, buying Front Door Shares is a great opportunity to give without pledging.

You Have Been Blessed In A Special Way

Year-end bonus? Tax return? Unexpected income? If you feel God has blessed you in a special way, please consider buying a Front Door Share.

You Would Like To Buy A Special Gift For Someone

Want to bless someone special in your life? Need a gift idea for the person who doesn’t need or want anything? A Front Door Share might be the perfect gift for Christmas, birthday, graduation, retirement, or other milestone occasion!
