Capital Campaign Update & Concept Site Plans

As of May 31, 2017 514 families have committed $4.75M to the One Church campaign! We’re well on our way!
Many families have not yet returned a commitment card. It is especially important to have the commitments in as soon as possible. Critical decisions on construction timing need to be made soon, and the level of financial support from the capital campaign will inform how much of the project can be tackled initially. Our leadership is committed to only taking on as much of this construction project as can be handled in a financially responsibly way. If you have not yet returned your commitment, please do so soon! You may make your commitment online at onechurch.popmn.org or find a commitment card in the back of the Sanctuary or at the welcome desk.

Land & Building Update
Our Land & Building team and key staff members provided more input on layout and building materials at the third schematic design meeting with our architects from Cuningham Group Architecture. We have agreement on general layout and building flow, the overall site plan and consensus on the direction for the exterior design and building materials. After our final meeting at the end of May, our general contractor will provide initial cost estimates based on this design work.

The addition to the east side of our Worship Center will provide new CDLC Preschool classrooms, a 300 seat chapel/alternative worship space, a large commons, and offices/family ministry space. Renovated areas of the current Worship Center will provide a larger Mission Outpost and Dental Clinic (in the current CDLC space), kitchen space, new child care area, additional administrative/family ministry spaces, and a renovated, reoriented Sanctuary with practice rooms, offices and new sacristy. The site plan includes a new CDLC playground, outdoor worship, and designated space for a columbarium.

The Board of Directors will review the proposed schematic design and associated cost estimates in early summer. The next phase of more detailed design will move forward upon Board approval.

Below are the latest graphics from the schematic design work. Please keep in mind that these are still concept plans and are not finalized. As always, please email onechurch@popmn.org with questions or leave a comment below.
