How will building help us reach our community for Christ? The I-54 Campaign will allow all of our ministries to grow! The renovation of our nursery and children’s ministry will make it warm, inviting and secure. This area will feature bright, bold and clear check in areas for parents to easily identify upon entering the building. The renovation of our fellowship hall will create an overflow room for our Sunday morning worship services while serving as a multi-purpose room for wedding receptions, baby showers, and Bible studies. We are adding five classrooms in our existing youth sanctuary to accommodate small group meeting areas for life groups and for Celebrate Recovery small groups. And the new construction of a spacious foyer and main entry will act as a “spine” connecting each of the previous additions together under one roof. It will allow us to expand south on our 20-acre campus as the need for a larger sanctuary would arise.
How will we pay for this? In total the new facilities and renovations will cost approximately $3.3 million. As a church family, we must ask if we are willing to sacrifice so others can experience the healing and transformation that only come through a relationship with Christ. It will require each of us to do our part in fulfilling the unique role God intends for us to play. If we all do our part, we are confident the Lord will amaze us with His provision and together we will make an eternal difference.
How can I help? First and foremost, please pray regularly for our I-54 Campaign. We are completely dependent upon the Lord for everything. We need both wisdom and provision. Make a commitment to learn as much as you can about the campaign and the investment it will make in our future. Lastly, give sacrificially. The vision God has granted us can only be achieved through faith and sacrifice. Our obedience opens the door to His supernatural breakthrough. If we do our part, He will do what only He can do.
