It’s been six years since our first campaign, you might wonder if we are still even considering the development of our building. The answer is YES!
To everyone who has so faithfully supported our building campaigns over the past six years, we want to start by saying, THANK YOU.
We see owning 550 S. McCaslin as huge gift and we are still so excited and longing for the day when we have our permanent spaces in the building. We still have the vision and plan to work with a developer to create a space that they will be a magnet to community and… “oh yeah” there is a church there too.
This page exists to make sure you are up to date on all of what is happening around our future building project.
Update from November 2022
We continue to meet weekly and we really do feel like we are making progress to move forward on one our biggest hurdles. In the meantime, we are working with our developer to make sure we can take next steps. Feel free to email us to talk more about what's happening and how you can specifically be praying.
Update from Sept 2022
When sent out information in June 2022 - we have included that information on this page. We continue to meet weekly and we really do feel like we are making progress to move forward on one our biggest hurdles. In the meantime, we are actively having conversations to make sure we are ready to go when we get the green light.
Update from June 2022
We, as a building team, meet on a weekly basis to do what we can to continue to move the process forward. While it’s been painstakingly slow - running into red tape and issues with outside entities - we are taking baby steps and are confident that the project will move forward. We still have funding, city support and excitement around our vision for our property.
The Marshall Fire did not impact our ability to take steps forward in our development. Several people asked if the cleaning of our building came out of our Building Funds. The answer is: NO, insurance fully covered all the cleaning of our building and replacing the items that were damaged due to the ash and soot in our building.
So, even though there is not a lot to report we want to do the best job we can to keep you up to date.
Please join us in praying for this process, that the barriers to moving forward would be removed and that God would continue to make our next steps toward the renovation of our space clear.
Our Building Team consists of:
Jaime Miles, John Friedery, John Goad, Bob Bingham, Jim Candy, Erik Estrada and Beth Lillstrom
