In 2016 our church was given the opportunity to buy land and build a new building in the new Midtown area (Yale and Airport) of Chilliwack. We decided that this was a tremendous chance to continue our desire to minister to the people of Chilliwack and to do something different and new. With that in mind we decided to build a gym complex that would serve our needs as a church as well as serve the needs of the adjacent Cascade Christian School. By erecting a structure that could serve the school on week days and serve our needs on the weekend, we felt we were maximizing our stewardship of resources at our disposal.
With prayer and thankfulness to God we put our building on Charles and First up for sale in 2017 and promptly sold it to the Heritage Christian Reformed Church of Chilliwack. The sale will close on Dec.30 2018 and we will hopefully have our own building ready to move into.
We know this project will cost us between 2.5 and 3.2 million dollars of which we have about half from the sale of our church. The challenge is to raise another $600,000, of which, we will need $200,000 by the end of 2017 to pay all our startup and development costs.
We have included on this website the plans for the new building as well as a page that will update our building fund and how we are doing raising money for our new project. Please have a look around and see what is being done.
We ask you to pray for our Building Committee and to join with us in grabbing hold of the future that God has directed us towards. Please give generously and please pray regularly as we take this bold step together.
