Building Plans

UPDATE 10/8/17

Process Update

  • Pastor Tom and Pastor Danny met with the architects this week, and we can report that the building plans are 60% complete. The next meeting will take place at the end of this month.
  • We have formed an Advisory Board to assist Pastor Tom in this process. One of our elders, Dean Jenks, is Chair of the Board. Dean has a college degree and extensive experience in Construction Management.
  • Our entire staff is moving to our Downtown location! We will be closing the Ministry Center as of Friday, October 13th.  Business hours will continue to be the same: Tues-Fri. 9am-5pm. Our phone number will also remain the same at 360-597-4015.

Prayer Requests

  • Please be praying for favor with our lenders in our financing process!
  • Currently, we do not have sprinklers in our building, but we may need to put them in during our remodel. This cost could exceed $100,000. We ask that you please pray for God’s will and provision in this area.
  • We also ask for prayers for favor with the City of Vancouver as we prepare to submit plans for permitting.

Commitment Card Totals

UPDATE 9/1/17

We are blessed and excited to share that after all the commitment cards were sorted and gifts were counted that our church family raised $117,046 in one time gifts, and $10,000 in monthly commitments! Because of the outpouring of your generosity we are well on our way to achieving our goal of $250,000 by the end of the year. We are still collecting commitment cards in the offerings on Sundays, or if you would like to make a donation you can do so at the bottom of this page!
