Business Name: TEMPLAR CHURCH  Business ID: 725359 Business Type: Domestic Nonprofit Corporation  Business Status: Good Standing  Date of Formation in Jurisdiction: 04/30/2015  Duration: Perpetual "To form a christian, non-denominational church for the worhip of and propagation of the Word of God and Gospel of Jesus Christ."

Historically, the Knights Templar were a Christian order of warrior monks founded about 900 years ago in 1118 A.D..  Named for the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, the Templars initially protected pilgrims traveling to Jerusalem.  Today we carry on that mission to protect Christians on their travels in life.  Our Templars are called to fulfill Psalms 82:3-4:
"Defend the weak and the fatherless; uphold the cause of the poor and the oppressed. Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked."

We would like to purchase Castle Church in Connecticut, as our National Headquarters & Christian Ministry Center.   All four buildings are included in our purchase: the beautiful stone sanctuary, Parish House (aka: 2 level fellowship hall), bell tower, &  office (wooden addition to the sanctuary). 

We have plans for several programs we'd like to run from this location so we can have a greater impact in helping the poor, lost, and all those who can't help themselves. We have plans for a food bank, homeless ministry, and of course weekly sermons at 10am by Father Robert Fredrickson to spread the love of Jesus Christ to the lost souls.

Purpose of a Headquarters/Retreat Center
--------------------------------------------------------
1) Open for service at 10 am every Sunday with Father Robert Fredrickson as Christ Covenant Church.

2) Retreat Center 2x year hosted at this location.

3) The Holiest part and core of our church, the Templar Relic Display, will be located at Castle Church for our members and the public. This will be located on the first floor of the Social Hall.  We strive today to re-collect the ancient Templar relics just as the ancient Knights Templar strived to collect the world's most famous Christian relics: The True Cross of Christ, the Spear of Destiny, the Crown of Thorns, the Shroud of Turin, the “Templecombe Head,” and the head of John the Baptist.  The ancient Templars took these relics into battle with them because they believed that they would bring the blessing of the Lord upon their battle.   These relics remain at the very center of the practice of our faith as the Knights Templar. 

4) This church will hold our annual Conclave two consecutive years and every third year Anual Conclave will move to other parts of the country.

5) Mailing address, legal address, Visitor center.

6) The Templar library will be usable by all members and where CAA's (new members) may come for an intensive week to challenge the courses to become Sergeants in a shorter amount of time. 

7) Father Robert Fredrickson will conduct services every Sunday at 10am as Christ Covenant Church, which is seperate from the Knights Templar.  Additionally we'll rent out this church to other churches for services, for weddings, parties, birthdays, and other functions.

8) Camp Grail Quest - One week each year Grand Commandant Timothy Woods will run a boys summer camp which will use the church's facilities as classroom space.  The camping accommodations are located offsite.
