Dotting the "i's" and Crossing the "t's"

Another important milestone in the life of the Williams Center has been achieved…we are now closed on our construction/permanent financing through First Citizens Bank. As of this 11:00 morning, September 23, 2013, all the documents have been signed, recorded at the Mecklenburg County Register of Deeds and all the copies distributed accordingly.  Now we can breathe a great sigh of relief and move forward with the construction process know that we can pay our contractor on time and within the terms of our contract with them.

Any of you who have bought a home before can identify with the many hurdles that have to be jumped in order to get to the closing table, and our process was no different, just more strenuous due to the size of the loan. We began the document delivery process about three months ago and went through several long and detailed lists to get everything required to the bank. Even as late as last week, we were still dotting all the “i’s” and crossing the “t’s” both the bank and attorneys required so that everyone’s interests were represented and protected. It was quite the education that’s for sure.  

But it’s done and Now Is The Time… to build…the new Williams Center where we will serve, love and meet the needs of our family of faith and the communities around us! The many challenges were many no doubt, but God has and will continue to bless the work before us. His hands are upon us, leading and guiding the way.

Please keep our committee and the work in your prayers. We need them more than you know.
