Funding & costs

Town Hall Q&A

Where are the funds coming from?

That’s a big price tag! Remember back in 2019 when we sold the previous Ministry Center property? At that time, a commitment was made by the church to relocate the existing ministries to a new space. The funds from that sale will be used to pay for the construction project. No funds will be borrowed. 

To the right you will find a breakdown of current funds.
