This phase is the most extensive of our project and brings our pastoral staff, worship team, family ministry and administrative staff together in one building, alongside our new preschool space. This phase includes a welcoming front door and gathering space, a new Community Room, new conference rooms and small group meeting spaces, and the external shell of a new Chapel. Our next phase of construction is planned to begin in 2020. Phase 2 of our One Church Transformation includes completion of the Chapel, resurfacing our main parking lot & replacing parking lot lights, completion of the landscaping and memorial garden, new Mission Outpost space, reorienting and renovating the Sanctuary, and the creation of music practice rooms. Timing of the remainder of our work will be dependent upon our ability to raise the needed funds, and the church calendar so that ministry continues as our renovation work is in process. We signed a broker agreement with CBRE Group, Inc., commercial real estate to market our Christian Life Center building. Mission Outpost will continue to operate in the CLC building while the building is being marketed. Proceeds from a sale of the CLC would be used towards the construction costs in the Worship Center. Some families have asked about beginning to contribute to the next capital campaign in 2019 for personal tax advantages this year or to lock in gains on a stock gift. Our next capital campaign will begin in the spring of 2020. If you’d like to give in advance, please note that your gift is for the next phase. If you have questions on gifting stocks or a qualified distribution from your IRA, please email Jane Victorey or call 952-898-9313, or click here for more information. Together, by God’s grace we are shaping ministry today and laying a foundation for generations to come. It is a great privilege to invest in the future of God’s work in the world through Prince of Peace, just as many saints invested their lives and resources to make our faith journey possible.
