New Parking Lot: Priceless
You may remember the MasterCard commercials where we would be reminded of the cost of certain things in life, and then the last item would be dubbed “priceless” as it would reflect more value than the amount of money spent to attain it. Similarly, our parking lot reconstruction is far from “priceless” monetarily, yet the benefits and ministry value does far outweigh the cost.
Our campus was constructed twenty-three years ago.Through the years we have seen God work to use this facility for his glory. What is even more exciting is how the ministry here has expanded to include community-based groups who meet here weekly alongside our internal ministries. Our church calendar is filled with activity seven days a week most weeks of the year. We host groups Monday through Friday that bring in hundreds of people per day.
If you take a quick walk around our parking lot, the sinking asphalt and large amount of potholes tell the story of years of use day in and day out. Our property sits on a tricky soil that unfortunately has been increasingly showing the effects of a shifting foundation. By doing our due diligence to understand the foundation, the construction of a new parking lot will be laid in confidence of an even lengthier lifespan.
But why is this costly reconstruction “priceless?” By investing this money we are bettering nearly 50% of our campus. This
Increases property value
Most importantly, ministry can continue. We invest into our building and grounds to ensure that God’s work can go forth. We want people to feel safe as they walk into our building. We want our community to see that we value them and this place so many call home.
Perhaps the foundation to our parking lot has shifted over the years, however the ministries that emanate from our well-used campus continue to be built upon the firm foundation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
We have committed to paying cash for the parking lot. With your participation, that goal is very attainable!
