For almost two years, the church’s leaders have been studying building needs and ministry possibilities. In concept meetings, we developed a list of values and priorities.
At the 2016 Annual Meeting, the church approved a fundraising campaign. Based on campaign results, we will work with an architect to develop a proposal that makes best use of pledged funds.
Visionary We want to go beyond ‘new and improved’ to look to the future. How can we convey the new, bold spirit in this place? What big ideas will equip us for the next stage in our ministry? What technology shifts do we need to consider?
Faith-Filled We want our facilities and our ministry to be faith-filled. We hope for an enriching environment that helps the congregation and the community grow in faith.
Community-Building Our ministry is for the congregation and for the community. We hope to build community within the church and with our neighbors. The project should help us reach out and reach in, in ways that are fully inclusive. We want to create a place for conversations.
Functional Whatever we create should be versatile and flexible. We are an informal congregation. This implies special attention to creating inviting spaces to be at ease, materials that are child-friendly and mess-friendly, and adequate, well-organized
With multiple generations at the core of our ministry, we need an environment that is both accessible and safe. We want spaces that are well-lit, acoustically and visually pleasing, but also designed to be used.
