Together Campaign


Money committed to the Building Renovation.

Donate online now!

On May 31st, 2021, a resounding 76% of the voting members voted in favor of taking out a loan so that we can build the first two phases of the renovation at the same time.  We are now working with the architect to make these goals a reality:

  • the building will better reflect God's mission
  • people of all abilities will be together in the building, this includes an elevator and new accessible bathrooms
  • the band led worship service and choir led worship will be together in a more flexible Sanctuary
  • more space for comfort-giving ministries
