THANK YOU for your support of our new church home! Now that construction is in full swing, we are sharing monthly updates on our progress, prayer requests and fundraising.
Current Completion Date: September 15, 2021
We cannot believe we are just a few short months away from meeting together in our permanent church home! While there can be many unexpected surprises near the end of a project, the current date for completion is September 15th and we are hopeful to move-in quickly thereafter. We will share any changes to our Sunday location when we are 100% certain. Our staff team recently got to visit the space to begin making a number of choices for furnishings and other elements that will help make the building feel welcoming and hospitable. The second floor that will house elementary, youth, offices, classrooms and balcony seating is nearly complete. The first floor that will be home to our worship auditorium, cafe and early childhood has the concrete floor sealed, walls and supporting structures painted, lighting being installed and bathrooms finished. Our biggest concern continues to be a necessary underground water permit. Everything has been submitted and paid for, we simply need approval. We saw some movement on this last week and need work to be approved as soon as possible to not face delays.
PRAY for continued favor with the city and all the inspections and permits necessary.
We have successfully passed all except for the underground water permit.
PRAY the subcontractors continue to perform quality work and stay on schedule for a September move-in.
PRAY for the safety of our construction site and all those working on the job. This month please specifically pray for John Parry. He is a Flood member with extensive background in construction and has been providing much counsel and support. Please pray for continued wisdom.
PRAY for the remaining provision necessary to complete our church home.
We are so grateful for the many gifts and pledges we have received so far. Every dollar counts and will help us meet our goal of using this space for Kingdom impact! We need to raise the remaining $1,138,657 by our expected move-in date this fall. As the project comes to a close, our greatest need is cash on hand so that we can minimize the use of our construction loan. We welcome any advancements of pledged giving if you are able, as well as, new one-time gifts.
Includes conversion of two-story warehouse to a multi-use space that will include worship auditorium, classrooms, offices and cafe.
Funds Received: $2,599,438.76
Remaining Pledges: $502,083.88
Remaining Need: $1,138,657*
*At our recent Flood Family Meeting, we shared an increase in our remaining need due to change orders and significant cost increases of construction materials. We have an obligated construction contract, but have many choices still to make in order for the building to feel like home. Furniture, skylights, equipment, design elements and more will turn the space into a sacred one and we need your continued support to make this all possible. We need to incur little to no new debt in order for our budget to balance. The contract and items mentioned above are currently included in the total for our remaining need.
