 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.

This September: Finding spiritual directiono:p>

You’ve got your work life here. You’ve got your family and friends there. And then there’s something you call spirituality.

 Each of them are put neatly in separate boxes.

 Work’s important – you earn money and try to make a difference – maybe even fulfill your purpose in life.

 Family and friends are important – these are the relationships that give you worth.

 And spirituality? How important is it? And what does it mean, really? Is it for a good feeling? Is it for security?

 Or could spiritual life make a difference to all of your living?

 Could your spirituality really provide the map and compass you use to set your direction for all of life – work and relationships, both?

 This kind of map reading can be taught from childhood and last throughout life. You learn how to find the way God is calling you; and how to take the sometimes surprising roads where God’s voice leads.
