Welcome! Thanks for checking out our “Campus Expansion” section of the Grace Fellowship website. The purpose of this section is to give more information and updates to our church family about the proposed next phase of campus expansion.
On April 15th, Grace Fellowship held a church-wide vote (the Specially-Called Church Conference). This vote revolved around the expansion of our Children’s Education Building, as we see the need to construct more space for more children and their families.
In preparing for this vote, church leadership determined that sufficient estimates of giving had been received via our capital campaign to construct a 28,000 square foot expansion to our existing Children’s Building. The church Conference vote was called at the unanimous recommendation of your Grace Fellowship Church Council, encouraging this expansion vote.
The vote to commence construction on the expansion of the Children’s Education Building was unanimous, and construction will commence by early May.
In keeping with our original commitment, and based upon estimates of giving, all planned work will be completed without any new long-term debt.
The construction project will necessitate relocation of grades 3 – 5 on Sunday morning from the Children’s Building over to the Mansion, and families with children in this age/grade range are being contacted by members of the Children’s Ministry team. The first Sunday that grades 3 – 5 will be on the second floor of the Mansion will be on May 6th.
