HIGH LEVEL OVERVIEW
The church leaders have been working with designers over a year and a half, coming up with a design that would respect the work and hearts of those who worked so hard, meet the goal to preserve and modernize, while remaining fiscally conservative
As we worked with the builders, talked to the leadership and those who have been here for years, there were a few things that stood out in importance. With that in mind, we've planned to:
Paint the exterior, install ACM panels over the stained glass windows, install sun shades/awnings and install and backlit cross on the front of the building
Keep the original stonework. The stones were gathered and installed by the people who moved from Mill St. to the current location and a master craftsman. The stones represent their prayers, their love, and their sacrifice.
Keep the steeple. While we don’t have any artifacts from the original church on Mill Street, the steeple represents an artifact of church design for over 100 years. It reminds us of the beginning that God gave us on Mill St.
Keep the stained-glass windows. We will be covering the windows with ACM panels so that they are not visible from the outside. However, they will be backlit and visible from the inside.
OUR HISTORY - OUR FUTURE
The leadership and people of this church have always had a vision and desire to preach the truth, in love. They have also desired that people come to know God as their personal Lord and Savior, to be transformed and to follow Him with all their whole heart.
The Vision to move from Mill St to Eastman Avenue in 1969
The Vision for expansion to original facilities (1994 and 2010)
As we look to the future, the stewardship of what God has entrusted to us and the vision of what He is calling us to continues. We want to see people come to know Christ, to be transformed and to follow Him with their whole heart.
