Board Unanimously Recommends Worship Center Transformation

On November 1, the Prince of Peace Board of Directors unanimously recommended construction of an addition to the Worship Center building and extensive remodel of the current space.

We have been evaluating our facilities and long term ministry needs over the last several years, and in June hired Cuningham Group Architecture to help us evaluate options and provide alternatives.

Our top priorities are:

  • Bring all ministries under one roof
  • Provide a completely new face and welcoming front entrance
  • Create easy wayfinding to the sanctuary and greater building accessibility for all ages
  • Design more effective space for Mission Outpost
  • Construct flexible space that meets current and long term ministry needs
  • Design large open multifunctional space for greater hospitality and community
  • Ensure long term stewardship of resources, extending the life of our Worship Center
  • Invest in energy efficiency for care of God’s creation

The construction project recommended by the Board of Directors will add approximately 25,000 SF to our Worship Center and completely renovate the original 60,000 SF of space. When complete, all ministries would move from the Christian Life Center Building, which could then be leased to help finance construction costs.

This recommendation will come before the Congregation for a vote during worship services the weekend of December 17-18. Voting is limited to confirmed members of Prince of Peace who are at least 18 years old. There is no proxy voting allowed by our Constitution and Bylaws. If you are unsure if you are in our records as a confirmed member please email Sandy Bradee at sbradee@popmn.org.

Please join us for the announcement in Worship on November 5-6.
