Inviting Environment Our Mission Center is an attractive, permanent setting that will inspire our members to confidently invite others to join our faith community. It is also designed to be an environment that attracts young families.

 

Our Mission Center Project flows from our vision. This vision has four key elements—inspirational worship, spiritual growth and loving service in an inviting environment—equipping us to accomplish our mission: to be transformed as we follow Jesus daily, leading others to do the same.

About the Project

 

• Project Schedule

Depending on how God blesses our campaign through each of us, the project is divided into three major phases.  Phase I is the interior renovation and exterior landscaping improvements (complete).  Phase II is the tower structure and north entry renovation (Summer 2016), Phase III is the south entry courtyard and site development plan (Summer 2017 - January 2018).

 

•Project Cost

The renovation project is estimated to cost approximately $800K, with an additional $200K set aside from existing building funds for site preparation, initial operating costs and loan servicing during the renovation. Donated labor could reduce these costs.

 

•Funding the Project

The project will be funded through our initial offerings and pledge commitments. Based on the results of our campaign we may initiated additional short-term borrowing as needed to complete the project in a timely manner.

 

•On-going Operating Costs

The combined interest-only loan payment and monthly operating costs are expected to be about $5,700 which is approximately $800/month less than our current monthly facility expense.

 

•Site Visibility and Street Entrance

Our architects are considering several possible design elements including improved signage, a decorative wall to hide some of the utility structures, driveway lighting and entrance curb widening and landscaping.

 

•Disability Access Considerations

The facility renovation plan will be designed to exceed the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Acts (ADA). We are also utilizing input from a disabled member who has graciously volunteered to review these plans to help ensure this goal is achieved.

 

•Future Site Development

The site features approximately 2.5 acres of vacant useable land to the rear of the property. Along with 1.5 acres of currently developed land, this would allow us to double the size of the present building to 16K square feet and accommodate up to 250 parking spaces. It also leaves space for outdoor activities and events.
