In November of 2014 we launched into a bold campaign to go above and beyond our normal church giving to raise $2,000,000. Our desire was to completely repay our debt of $1.42 million for facility improvements… AND… raise the necessary capital to renovate our Chapel (in our Education Building) to prepare for the launching of a new (video venue) worship service in the future.
As of the end of 2016, God has helped us reach our goal thanks to your generosity! In fact, as of the end of January 2017, we have exceeded our $2 million goal by $55,276. (Apparently God knew that we would need a little more than we planned!)
- PHASE 1 (of Double Our Impact) – Raise the money to start a new worship service in the Chapel
- PHASE 2 – Make the necessary preparations to launch a new worship service in the Chapel
Scott Hallman, our new Pastor of Worship & Arts is arriving in Elk Grove on February 1. Among his many responsibilities, Scott Hallman will be heading up a team to pull together our plans to convert the Chapel into the kind of environment that will help us reach young families in Elk Grove. He will also be helping us prepare various teams of volunteers (i.e., worship team, coffee baristas, hospitality/greetings, promotion, etc.) to help make this video venue worship service a reality. We hope to have all this work done in 2017.
- PHASE 3 – Launch a new (video venue) worship service in the Chapel
Lord willing, our dream is to launch our next worship service in January of 2018. We’ll keep you posted as our plans develop. In the meantime, be encouraged that God is on the move at Creekside Christian Church and we would very much appreciate your prayers as we pursue this vision.
Thanks for being a vital part of what God is doing through Creekside Christian Church!
Pastor Scott Hansen
