Phase 1 Future Development

The Future Development Team is excited to provide an update on the Education Centre – and to provide a vision for how the project will roll out over the next few months.

We currently have 1.9 million raised towards our $2 million goal. This 1.9 million consists of $1,726,998 cash on hand, $95,000 gifts in kind & $84,070 expenses.

Kick Off to our Pledge Campaign
Our goal is to secure commitments for this next 3-year pledge drive by the end of June, so we can go into the summer building season with a clear sense of our financial situation. This table represents what we think our church is capable of committing to, given the current giving patterns and previous pledges:

phase1-pledgechart-2019

In the past 2 years we have raised over $700,000 per year – so this goal is not unreasonable. If we are successful in meeting the goals set out in this chart, after 3 years we will be close to paying for most of the anticipated expenses of this project. This means reduced or no debt.

Construction Update
Over the summer months we’ll be working on underground services, and you’ll see disruption to our parking lot. As such, a development permit application has been submitted to the city and we are gathering bids for the proposed work.

We encourage you to continue to pray and consider your own pledge commitment to reach our community and be the “Home Church of Spruce Grove”.
