After months of prayer and preparation, the Building Committee presented the Building Plan Proposal to the church on Sunday, November 23, 2008 and approved by the church on December 14, 2008. The plan focuses on providing education space for adults, children, and youth, as well as a gymnasium for recreation and fellowship space, and a large commercial kitchen. In light of the scope and size of the plan, the committee has divided it into two phases based on urgency of need. Both phases are important and are part of a comprehensive long-term plan. Altogether, the two phases are about 36,000 square feet.
Phase 1 is focused on providing much-needed space for our children's and youth ministries through the construction of a two story building on the north side of our current building. The ground floor of the building will house the children's ministry center that will include six classrooms, a resource room, a welcome/check-in center, restrooms and a large activity room. The top floor will be the new home for our Student Ministry Center. It will include a lounge area, game room, classrooms, a control center/snack bar and a worship center for 200. Phase 1 also includes the renovation of the Fellowship Hall with very nice, floor to ceiling folding panel partition walls to better accommodate adult classes.
Phase 2 includes the gym, commercial kitchen, walking track, additional classrooms, large amounts of storage, a workout room and some rooms that could be used in a variety of ways such as a media center, coffee shop or craft room.
EXTENDING THE LEGACY
What is Extending the Legacy?
Extending the Legacy is the plan to raise the necessary financial resources to build Phase 1 of the new building plan. Our goal is to rekindle our church's rich legacy of faith, vision and generosity to provide the much-needed new space for children and youth ministry. Like the "great cloud of witnesses" that has gone before us, we will pass on our proud legacy to upcoming generations that will greatly impact the world for Christ.

What we have heard and known,
what our fathers have told us.
We will not hide them from their children;
we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD,
his power, and the wonders he has done…
...so the next generation would know them, even the children yet to be born,
and they in turn would tell their children,
then they would put their trust in God.
- Psalm 78:3-7
