Facility Expansion Project

Addition and Remodeling Campaign

ppc_facility_expansion_exterior

In March of 2017 the Session at Providence Presbyterian Church asked the Strategic Planning Committee (SPC) to develop a plan to update our gathering place to serve our current congregational needs.

A major area of concern was the lack of adequate facilities to host church fellowship functions such as congregational dinners as well as space to conduct funeral, wedding and Presbytery receptions. The Session also wanted solutions to our lack of water and bathrooms for our nursery and toddler classes as well as our desire for additional storage and adult classroom space.

The Strategic Planning Committee developed an excellent plan to accomplish these objectives economically by renovating our current building and by adding a community center.

Solutions to current needs:
+ Facilities adequate for church fellowship, funerals, weddings & community activies
+ Access to water and bathroom facilities for our nursery and children
+ Storage of supplies for outreach ministries and Deacon supplies
+ Expanded classroom facilities for Christian Education and ESL

If you were unable to attend the June 10 presentation, you may view the PowerPoint presentation on-line by clicking on the link below. The Session exhorts and encourages you to support this project with your prayer and donations.

A special note from our Pastors:

Dear Providence Church Family,

Hey---I’ve just seen the work-up that the Strategic Planning Committee put together. All I can say is, “Hooray! Thanks So Much! Wow!” I can pull for it and promote it! What they are sharing is a building expansion plan that will serve the needs of people well into the future. They used to tell me in college that the Word of God and the souls of people: those two last. We have to have an environment that supports both extraordinarily well. We’ve been limping along on several fronts for quite some time. This proposal could make a big difference if you decided to make the extension of Christ’s Kingdom a major priority in your life. Go back over 2 Corinthians chapters 8 & 9 and ask yourself how you could sow into such a project. The local Church is a pivotal part of God’s plan in reaching the world, nurturing the saints, and growing the next generation for Jesus the Lord. Thank the folks that have been working on this---and thank the Lord for the opportunity at hand!

- Pastor Jason


     

Dear Providence Church Family,

The apostle Paul wrote in his letter to the Ephesians that Jesus upon his ascension gave gifts to the Church in order "to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ." (4:12) As we prayerfully consider the potential for building expansion at Providence, I am excited about the opportunities that would afford us for ministry expansion to our church body as well as our surrounding community! These facility additions would enhance our vital ministry to our children, meet the needs for much needed space for Christian Education ministry, foster greater church-wide fellowship, and create further venues for service to our community through things like ESL and mercy ministry endeavors. Join with me in the vision and joy of seeing our ministry broadened and deepened as more and more people are touched by the gospel of God's grace and ministered to in Jesus' Name! May God bless us and grant us His wisdom as we pray and consider these possibilities for building and ministry expansion!

With you in Service to Jesus,
- Pastor Adam
