Expansion Project

Narthex Building Project FAQ


At the October 22nd congregational meeting, the proposed building renovation, construction and parking lot additions were approved.


What is next?  In accordance with the resolution we are seeking to raise 1/3 of the total cost for the building. 


How much do we need to raise?  

  • The total cost of the project is in the range of $450,000 to $470,000.
  • 1/3 would then be approximately $155,000.
  • These monies need to be over and above your giving for our annual budget!


It would be a great blessing to pay all of the project eliminating any debt at all!


If I pledge money, do I need to pay it immediately? 

No, pledges may be paid over a period of time.  But the more on hand, the less we will need to borrow.


How do I give to this project?  We will have a specific pledging process, but any gifts given to the Capital Improvement Fund will be included.


When are the pledges due?  We targeted March 22, 2018 as the date on which to evaluate where we stand.  If the full amount is pledged and given early, we will move ahead on a quicker time schedule.


Will I see progress on the building site soon?  No, while behind the scenes planning will continue, no demolition or construction will occur before the pledges and monies are received.


How else can I help?

  • Prayers to the Lord for the project will be necessary for its completion.
  • We will need volunteers to serve on the building committee who will then supervise the process.
  • From time to time, we will use volunteers to do parts of the work to lower the cost.(Things like painting or landscaping)
