We want to be a church that is always looking for ways to better welcome our community and neighbors. Our elders and leaders have identified three facility projects which we believe will significantly help us move forward with this goal. Take a look at each of them - what we are doing, why we think it will help us grow and how you can be a part of making it happen:
We are fencing in an area behind our building and adding a playscape. Over time, we will add more play stations and sensory equipment. This not only helps us become more friendly for families in our community with young kids, but it also opens up the opportunity for more interaction times and meals after services. (Giving the kids a place to play while the parents converse.)
The playground will cost $10,000. We have a donor who will match funds up to $5,000 for any gifts given by Easter. You can click here to give online (select playground fund). Or write "playground" on any check you put in the offering.
One of our best opportunities to let the community know we exist is our Bagdad road frontage. In fact traffic on that road has been steadily growing and is predicted to climb over the next several years as new neighborhoods are added north of us. However, the city code requires that all temporary signs be removed. We would like to take advantage of this great frontage by constructing a large sign which fits the aesthetic of our buildings and catches the attention of our community.
A large, stone sign on Bagdad will cost $20,000. We have a donor who will match funds up to $10,000 for any gifts given toward this by Easter. You can click here to give online (select sign fund). Or write "sign" on any check you put in the offering.
Our second building is ready to be finished-out. The exterior is mostly complete and even the landscaping is in place. Now it is time to create a large youth space, a small office, a kitchenette, and some much-needed storage. We have already started raising funds for this building and we are doing well - but we still need your participation to finish it off!
We are well along the way to raising the $64,000 needed to finish out the second building. You can help us make that a reality by giving toward the building fund. Click here to give online (select building fund). Or write "building" on any check you put in the offering.
