From focus groups, to capacity studies, plan review groups, and multiple Campus Conversations we've been asking the questions. Searching for and sharing the answers remains an important part of the process.
Why are we doing this? Our classrooms are used 7 days each week and need to be renovated. Our church, and especially our youth group, is growing and we have run out of space. We need more room for our current mercy & justice ministries, as well as space for additional ministries and programs to serve the poor and the needy of our community. We believe that God desires his people and his church to be especially known for serving the poor and the needy (Matthew 25:31-46).
HOW MUCH SPACE?
How much space will the new building add? The usable square footage of our current office building will quadruple from 2,200 to 9,700 square feet, which is the maximum increase of usable square footage Sandy Springs’ ordinances will allow.
How much will the renovations and new building cost? The estimated costs currently stand at $1.9 million. Our goal is to secure the full amount over 3 years through this Capital Campaign so that construction loans will be fully paid off.
How long will the renovations and new building take? We anticipate that the renovation of our current facility will take 8 weeks during May-June 2018. Our target to begin construction on the new building is Spring 2019.
