history, Great Commission Church
of God has obediently
responded to God’s leading.
In this present
season of ministry, we are again poised
to respond to His
voice, as we begin a new building
fund campaign. We believe that God is opening the
necessary doors to
accomplish this effort. With the
success of this
building fund campaign and ultimately
the construction of
our new sanctuary project, the
body of Christ will
be strengthened, our community will be more effectively reached in the name of Jesus
Christ, and the
Kingdom of God will be increased for His glory.
It takes more than just buildings to make a church – it takes people who have fellowship with one another
and, more importantly, with God. Buildings, however, do serve to give us consistency and stability in our
ministry efforts. With the new sanctuary, we will be able to more adequately minister to our community both
now and in the generations to come.
Why now? This is the question you may ask. While we have not outgrown our current church and
it is still
well maintained, it is no longer meets our ministry needs. Last year, Young Men, Inc. Youth Ministry served
more than 100 young men in the fellowship hall, but we continue to struggle with adequate space to
accomplish all the needs of the participants, staff, and program storage. Also, our church has grown beyond
the capacity that the fellowship hall can be used for. In 2015 we hosted our second Making Better Choices
Conference for the community and we continue to struggle with adequate breakout space and the logistics,
along with layout challenges of rooms. This made it difficult again to conduct a quality conference. Since it our
desire to get more involved in similar community efforts, a new facility would better meets these needs.
Therefore, a committee has been formed and we are currently in the process of choosing a
consultant, and fundraising and giving campaigns are well underway. All these things are being
so that we can count the cost and eventually meet the budget it will take to complete the new
building which we hope to include: 200 - 300 seat sanctuary, multiple conference rooms/classrooms,
pastoral offices, administrative offices,
computer lab, gymatorium, and a special area for
youth ministry to meet in. We pray that you will be every one of you will be supportive of this effort and that you would be consistent in your tithing and giving, and perhaps even increase as the Lord gives
you favor and increase.
Continue to pray that God blesses this
effort and that His guidance accompanies us every
step of the way. Luke 24:27-29 says "Suppose one of you wants to build a tower. What is the
first thing you will do? Won’t you sit down and figure out how much
it will cost and if you
have enough money
to pay for it? Otherwise, you will start building the tower, but not be
able to finish. Then everyone who sees what
is happening will laugh at you."
The Step It Up Campaign
raised of $1,700+
Our monthly goal of $500
toward the building fund has exceeded each month as of March,2017
In December, 2017, we received a matching grant from Center for Congregations to complete Phase 2 of
our project. In 2018, we were blessed to raise more than $30,000.00 to secure the drawings and first model of the new facility.
