Temple Finalization (Hayward, CA)

$1,836 of $8,000 goal

Raised by 23 people in 43 months
"Give, and you will receive" Luke 6:38. This is one of the 1000's of messages that are spread through God's Word every single day. Please help the Word of God continue by supporting a very important church building project in the SF Bay Area.

Hi. My name is Ozzie Maynard, and I've been a member of the Hayward Spanish SDA Church for most of my life. God has helped the Hayward Spanish SDA Church and I serve the community of Hayward, CA for over 12 years through services like the Pathfinders and Adventurers Club, Adventist Community Services, Bible studies, and more. Families have been fed, the naked have been clothed and lives have been changed, including mine!

The church sanctuary has been literally overflowing with members and visitors for years, and we've been standing, praying, struggling, and waiting humbly for our new temple to be finished. Unexpected costs have put us in a $20,000 budget deficit and we need your help.

The Hayward Spanish Seventh-Day Adventist Church is currently in need of special donations to fund the purchase of church pews and A/V (Audio-Visual) equipment. Funding is at a deficit of approximately $20,000, which is necessary to fulfill our goal of having our new temple inauguration, open to the community on May 2nd, 2015. The goal is to raise $8,000 dollars for A/V equipment on gofundme.com. The remaining $12,000 dollars needed to complete the purchase and installation of church pews will be fundraised through the hard work and dedication of our 250+ loving church members. Any dollar amount is appreciated in this time of need! We know God will provide because He always does and He always has!

We are currently in need of purchasing the following A/V equipment to complete our A/V booth and better spread the Word of God:

2 Computer Systems = $1700
3 24-inch Monitors = $410 total
Camera Broadcaster/Recorder = $300
Camera Production Switcher = $950
Canon XA25 Camcorder = $2600
Tripod and Tripod Head = $540
Mini HD Cameras ($450 each) = $900 total
Cabling, Hardware, and Accessories = $600

Total Cost: $8000

With your help, the community of Hayward and tens of thousands of others will be able to hear the Word of God. We are CALLED to spread the news, and I PRAY that you are called to do the same. Please donate today.

Please spread the word. Sharing truly is caring.

Praise God! Thanks to nearly 20 generous donors, we have reached approximately 20% of our goal of raising $8000. We are 1/5th of the way there!

There are only a couple of weeks left before the church begins purchasing and installing equipment, so we urge you to make a donation soon. Donations will continue to be accepted until we reach our $8000 goal. Any amount you choose ($5 or even $5,555) can be donated securely directly through this website:


"Give, and you will receive" Luke 6:38.
Please continue to urge your friends and neighbors to donate however much they can. God bless.

Praise God that we've reached 11% of our goal as of Wednesday, March 11th 2015 (Only two nights!). To God be the glory! We are on schedule to reach our goal of raising $8000 (or more) by April 1st, but only if we continue to work together.

It is really easy to donate. In my experience, it only takes one minute or less. Any chosen amount from $11 to $11M will be completely appreciated and accepted. I forgot to make it clear that 100% of donations made through this page are going straight to Hayward Spanish SDA treasury to purchase urgently needed audio-visual equipment.

"Sharing is caring"

Whether you have money or not, PLEASE just share this link with a message to your closest friends and those you consider family via Facebook, email, and even text message. I would like to thank everyone who's shared and donated so far, and if you plan to donate, I thank you in advance and I will thank you again because I cannot thank you enough!
