Woodmen Heights Initiative
Each Woodmen campus faces a unique facilities need and opportunity in the coming months. The Rockrimmon campus will work on renovation and Gleneagle will begin to explore development. Those of us who call Woodmen Heights home will have the chance to give to create more space for up-and-coming generations. Together these three projects, one for each campus, make up our Partners in the Gospel initiative.
An average weekend at the Heights sees more than 300 children squeezed in all over our campus to experience God's love. The gospels make it clear that kids are a big deal to Jesus, and we want to be a church that reflects His heart for little ones. As we reach more and more families, our current facilities are bursting at the seems. Some of our kids ministry happens in portable structures. City regulators are anxious to see us move to a permanent solution and lets be honest, the portables just aren't an awesome ministry home for our boys and girls. We just don’t have enough room.
To meet this need, our elders and key staff are in the early design stages of a master building plan that will provide the space we need to effectively minister to students and children for years to come. We envision safe and fun environments that invite our younger generations to explore life with Jesus. We’ll also look to add a little more room in our worship services and improve acoustics.
Early in 2017, we’ll share a progress report with you. By late spring, we hope to be ready to lay out a compelling vision for the future of facilities at Woodmen Heights. At that time we’ll invite you to join in funding this project as we move toward the future God is calling us to build together. In the mean time, we hope you’ll join us in praying for the Lord's guidance and our obedience as we work and plan.
Although we are just in the planning phase, we have established a secure, designated fund for this Woodmen Heights project. If God is leading you to make a financial contribution you can click HERE for giving info. If you have questions, please contact our Woodmen Heights Campus Pastor, Rich Griffith.
Our neighborhoods are full of people who desperately need the Lord, and we’re confident that He has uniquely positioned us to reach our community with the gospel. We’re grateful to you, and to God, for your partnership as together we love well and change lives through Christ.
