We are excited to activate change by investing in our campus and worship experiences in 3 strategic ways.
1- First is our gym. Currently our gym serves as a gathering place for our student ministry. Unfortunately, this makes it difficult for us to use our gym for sports ministry as well as other church and community activities. With your help, we are committed to turning our gym back into a multipurpose space by adding a state-of-the-art stage for worship gatherings. By adding this stage we will once again be able to engage our community through sports ministry. Additionally, we will add an outdoor patio area to serve as an improved entry to the gym and increase handicap accessibility.
2- Second is our worship environments. We have not made a significant investment in our technical and worship infrastructure in over 15 years. We are looking forward to raising the bar across all our worship environments including the Hatfield, the Chapel, KidCity, FirstCity Students, Online, as well as among our Latino and Persian congregations. This will increase our opportunity to engage our community with technology that matches their lifestyle. This upgrade will feature a 24’ LED video wall, dedicated production space for our audio and video streaming, new presentation systems for our adult Connect Groups and upgraded infrastructure in audio, video, and lighting throughout our entire campus.
3- Lastly, is campus-wide accessibility and maintenance investments. The back alley leading up to our buildings has become a hazard during rain events. We are excited to add a new walkway to the back alley that will provide a safe entry to our back parking lot. Additionally, as financial stewards, we have the opportunity to ‘go green’ by upgrading aging mechanical systems and adding energy efficient lighting to create ongoing savings throughout our campus.
To make these improvements and increase our capacity for ministry, we have approved an investment of $1.5M. We are trusting the Lord that, as a community of Change Makers, we will accomplish this without incurring debt.
To do this, we are asking you ACTIVATE CHANGE by giving today.
