Our strategic planning team has proposed that the next phase of our church expansion be to build a new children’s building and to remodel the preschool wing. If you missed the informational meetings, you can watch the video below. The vote to approve the plan occurred on November 12 and passed with a 97% approval.
On December 10th we launched our “I Love My Church” Offering. Everyone was encouraged to bring their best, one time gift to help start the funding for this NEXT STEP. We then committed to giving above and beyond our tithe a monthly offering for the next 12 months. This is a challenging step that will allow us to keep doing GREATER THINGS.
Over 200 families joined together to give their best gift above and beyond their tithe. As a result, we raised more than 10% of the project costs in one month’s time. We will now take the next 11 months to continue to give a gift above and beyond our tithe at whatever level you can.
Total raised as of February 2019: $736,026.21
DEAR CHURCH FAMILY,
In 1998 PCBC took a radical STEP of faith as we relocated to our new location at Rockwell and 112th. That STEP was Phase 1 STEP. The plan was to relocate to our current multipurpose building and then build additional ministry space for future growth.
In 2012 our church family adopted a Strategic Master Plan. We spent two years praying about maximizing our 31 acre campus for the glory of God. Our Master Plan identified 6 key phases addressing future growth. One of the phases was an expansion and renovation for children.
Over the past few years we have seen explosive growth in our Children and Preschool Ministries. Our Strategic Plan calls for a new Children’s Building and a remodel of our Preschool area. This STEP provides much needed space for our Awana program, Sunday morning ministries for children and a secure Preschool area. It will also allow us to reclaim over 3,500 sq. ft. for adult classroom space.
Our NEXT STEPS proposal consists of a new 12,500 sq. ft. Children’s Building, new entrance, and a 2,500 sq. ft. lobby. This addition would include controlled check-in space, a large multipurpose room, new classrooms, children’s restrooms, a food service area, and storage. The proposal also includes renovating the existing preschool area to increase security and building a brand new playground.
Our NEXT STEPS are a result of a God-sized vision to do GREATER THINGS for the glory of God as we help our community Know God, Become Family, and Impact the World. NEXT STEPS is not just an opportunity to STEP out in faith, but an opportunity to teach our children
- -to trust God as He leads
- -to embrace our responsibility to reach the next generation
- -to watch God provide
Our NEXT STEPS will require us to take this step together as one body with one purpose. We can only do this if we take these STEPS together. Please pray about your part as we take the NEXT STEP!
Seeking Him and His will,
Bill Hulse, Senior Pastor
