For the last 4 and half years God has miraculously made a way for the old Century 16 theaters to be our home. This building has been an incredible tool for ministry, not only on Sundays, but in significant ways throughout the week!
With our lease agreement ending this September, the leadership at Mission has been exploring options for several months to discern where God is leading us. And God has done it again! We are so excited to be able to extend our lease and stay in the building for 3 more years!! It really is amazing how God has made a way for this to happen!
With this being the new (and exciting) reality, we have the opportunity to use more of the building to make space for more people to find and follow Christ. And that's what it's all about!
Through a few providential relationships, Mission will be able to expand the use of our building at a fraction of the cost, which is awesome!
For a total of $350,000, we will be able to make more seats available for adults on Sunday morning as well as create a new Mission Kids space using 4 additional theaters that are currently not in use!! These are things that we must do if we want to continue to extend hope for everyone and have open doors to our community.
As you may know, during the optimal times on Sunday morning for someone to attend church (10 & 11:30), we are out of space and while that is exciting, it's not ok. We always want to be a church that communicates, "you are welcome here" and not "we don't have room for you".
So, we are joining in together to make space for people. Between now and Nov 1st, we will together give toward the $350,000. This is going to take all of us being generous with what God has given us to make space for someone who has not even walked through the doors yet or encountered Jesus Christ. Those kind of investments are always worth it!
