In the Summer of 2022, God began speaking to our Lead Team about New Community preparing to find our place to call home. The sense was that God was inviting us to be planted and let our roots grow deep down so that we can continue to serve this community with greater impact and influence (Isaiah 61:4). It is our heart that as we take this next step, we do so keeping our community at the forefront of our dreaming
A GOD-SIZED VISION
Our dream is for a community-first, flex-use property for families, children, and the marketplace ministry that is accessible seven days a week. We are believing that a space like this can help repair a bridge of trust between our community and the church, and ultimately with God.
We see church offices that include a public coffee shop and co-op working space.
We see kids environments that allow for a preschool in the morning and kids activities and classes at night (like dance, sports, etc.).
We see outdoor spaces such as a public playground for families, a lawn for outdoor events and an amphitheater for concerts.
We see an incubator for non-profits and startups to propel entrepreneurs who have a dream to impact our community.
We see these kinds of ministries coming from the God-given dreams of the people of New Community.
THE DISCOVERY PHASE: +$250K
This God-sized vision will be a phased process, and our first step is the Discovery Phase. During this time, we hope to launch our initial feasibility studies by working with architects, real estate agents and contractors to put these dreams to paper and discover the path forward for New Community.
We praise God for His goodness and New Community's generosity. In December of 2022, over $250,000 was pledged above our normal tithes and offerings to cover these initial expenses and prepare us to move when God moves!
YOUR PART IN GOD'S DREAM
There is still an opportunity for YOU to give and be a part of what god is doing next at New Community!
