Construction Update

Here’s the Latest

We are so thankful for how the Lord has provided, through His people, as we begin construction on the metal building on the hill! We have been given over $1,700,000, which has allowed us to complete Phase 1 We will continue to ask and pray that the Lord will provide the remaining $900,000 in order to start the remaining phases of the building.

Phase 1 – We have completed the east side of the building which provides staff offices, pastoral care rooms and small gathering spaces. We are grateful to the Lord and His people for the provision of this space for our staff.

Phase 2 – Will be a large gathering space on the west side of the building, which will be used for middle school and high school ministry, membership class, and other mid-week ministries. We will also complete the exterior of the building, including paint, covered outdoor seating, and final touches. This phase will start when the funds become available. As of April 1, 2021, we have received 25% of the necessary funds to begin Phase 2.

How will the large gathering space be utilized?

The gathering space at the hill (Phase 2) will allow our Middle School ministry and New Member class to have a permanent home on Sunday. By moving these two ministries, this will open up much needed space in the children’s wing during each service. In addition, we will utilize this space during the week for additional Equipping classes, High School Ministry and Training Day classes.
