“Though the fig tree doesn’t bloom, and there’s no produce on the vine… I will rejoice in the God of my deliverance.” - Habakkuk 3:17-18

Our journey through Advent and Christmas joins Bible passages that reflects the world into which God came in human flesh. Like our own time, this world seemed unlikely, even a hostile place for this fragile incarnation of peace and hope. This season we will proclaim the entrance “into this world” again of the light for which we still so desperately yearn. Then, what are we called to bring into this world?

A RE-NEWED BUILDING FOR A NEW VISION

 Our New Wave Plan being made concrete

A plan has been in the works to renew our church building, to accommodate our New Wave plan for worship, outreach spiritual growth, and fellowship.

We’ve got an architect refining our plan and need to know how much we can successfully complete. So, we had a feasibility study.

The study was completed and formally presented to an all-church gathering on Wednesday, September 3. About 40 were in attendance.

In summary, our consultant conservatively estimated that the congregation is able to support a capital fund program of $650,000-850,000. Add to that, the proceeds of property sales estimated at $1.3 million; so he believes the congregation could sustain a project of $1.95 million to $2.15 million over three years. He believes that the congregation should undertake a renovation; but cautions that it should not start until the properties are sold.
