Space for Grace grows and equips our campus as God builds His church. Our efforts focus on adding classroom space for children on Sunday mornings, youth on Sunday night and adults on Sunday, as well other activities during the week. We are optimizing the office so that the Grace staff and volunteers have room to work and interact with the community. The increased growth impacts the available parking which is also part of our expansion program.
- Children’s space is at capacity during the second service.
- Special needs individuals on Sunday need increased space to provide quiet spaces when needed, which we do not have today during both services.
- Adult space for adult ministries has been affected in more subtle ways. We are no longer able to offer an adult LifeGroup during second service.
- Parking is also an issue, as our parking lot fills up every Sunday and requires a lot of parking in a dirt lot behind the main campus. With this proposal, we would nearly double the parking spots into this lot, as well as provide solar covered parking to generate power for the campus and be more environmentally friendly.
- During the week the variety of ministries has expanded. Our ability to offer space for community groups or new ministries is decreasing. Grace is a beehive of activity, every day of the week! Here are examples of ministries that currently share our limited number of classrooms:
- Youth & Children: Young Life, Confirmation course and The Blender;
- Getting Connected: Alpha, Joyful Seniors, Grace Undercover Book Club;
- Adults: Men’s and Women's Bible Studies, HopeSpring, GriefShare, DivorceCare, Friday Night Life;
- Service Opportunities: Open Prayer, Prayer Shawl Group, Grace Quilts and Catalysts for Freedom;
- Special Events: Youth Mark520, Easter week and Vacation Bible School.
