The approved school improvement project plan includes the renovation of the present school facility represented in the white areas above.  The area in green is the proposed new entry, elevator, pre-kindergarten and pre-kindergarten day-care that would be finished.  The blue areas are the shelled-in but unfinished proposed gym and new locker rooms. This area would be finished as funds are available.

Lower Level Plan

 

The approved school improvement project plan includes the renovation of the present school facility represented in the white areas above (except for the large area on the left which is the proposed unfinished gym area).  Note that some of the areas may be used for different purposes than at present.  Bathrooms would be upgraded to include handicap restrooms. The heating system would include air-conditioning.   The area in green is the proposed new entry and elevator that would be finished.  The blue areas are the shelled-in but unfinished proposed gym and new locker rooms. This area would be finished as funds are available.

Upper Level Plan

 

Plan Approved for Campaign Use

 On September 21st our congregation approved a conceptual plan for fund-raising purposes.  This includes everything in the proposed floor plan, but only finishing the green-shaded areas. The interior of the blue-shaded areas would not be finished (shelled). Block and masonry construction would be used for all parts of the building.  The estimated cost with the shell-in areas is $5.35 million.  Totally finished, the project at today’s prices would be $6.7 million.

In respect to funding this project, the church council is proposing that we borrow no more than the $1.5 million the Board of Finance has recommended at this time.

We can expect that the educational phase of a capital campaign for this project will begin in January; the general gifting phase, in April; and the alumni phase, in June.

At this point, the time for beginning construction is uncertain. Also before construction begins, our council and congregation must give approval.

Keep this project in your prayers.  Consider how you may support it with your gifts.

We trust that God

will bless us with gifts

through his generous people.
