FAQ’s about the move to 16th & A

What is the timeline?

  1. Advent - No (But Christmas Eve service - Yes)
  2. Easter - Yes, full occupancy

How great is the need?This is a lot of money, is it necessary? 

  1. Evening services? Build New? Expand at our location? Another Facility?  This is the least expensive option – partly because of rental income we receive from both the daycare and the church taking occupancy at 40th and Sheridan. 
  2. Effective American churches tend to have facilities with a balance of three things: Worship space, education space, and parking. We can multiply worship space by multiplying services (which we currently do). Our parking situation, but this doesn’t change the other two? 
  3. Yes.  We couldn’t do nothing and remain faithful. 

Are there potential ways to lower costs?

  1. Yes, through sweat equity we have already done this.
  2. The selection of materials
  3. The scope of the project is really doing only what is really necessary. The majority of the cost is in the elevator, accessible bathrooms, and heating and cooling updates.

Does the purchase of a building mean that you’ve given up on church planting. 

  • No.  A mother church doesn’t shrink when it plants. It grows. That’s just the dynamics of the kingdom. We feel we need to care for who we’ve got, then turn our head to church planting.

What will happen to our current building?

  • 2 Pillars Church will rent the space. 

What is our relationship with Trinity Daycare

  • They are our tenants. We’re not taking over the ownership and operations of the daycare. Though I hope there will be opportunities for partnership, both in caring for their families and the neighborhood.

How do I stay informed? 

  1. We will have updates during our worship services monthly
  2. Sign up for the This Week at Grace Newsletter
  3. Follow us on instagram: @togetheratgrace

Are we going to do one service or two?

  1. We will go to 2 services: 8:30 & 11:00, which will address parking.
  2. Two services will also help us allow for volunteerism on Sundays.
