We exist to connect people with God’s love and help them live as committed followers of Christ. To do this faithfully, we have been a congregation on the move. In 93 years, we have grown into a community of 2,500 members with a building that sits on 32 acres in Plymouth, MN, our 5th home. We knew that the size of our church family would continue to grow…and once again it has! View our 2014 History Book for complete timeline. On Commitment Weekend April 30/May 1, 2016, we asked all members to make generous three-year financial pledges over and beyond their current giving. Thanks to you, we have exceeded our goal of $4.2 million.
Thank you for your pledges!
In May 2019 we celebrated the completion of our Kingdom Impact capital campaign. If you have not completed your pledges we encourage you to do so. We finished 2018 with over $4.2 million total money received, which is right on pace with our pledge forecasting. This month, we will make a lump sum payment of about $250,000 against the construction loan. Watch for information coming in the months ahead as together we prepare to finish Kingdom Impact strong. Thank you all for your gifts and prayers of support. Jim Holmlund firstname.lastname@example.org 763.550.1000

Over a year ago, the building committee received permission to work with an architect and look at our options for modifying our current facilities to meet our growing needs.
Build more classrooms: We have determined that adding 10 – 12 more classrooms would expand our Kingdom Impact and enable us to welcome new families with children and to grow for years to come. It would also free up more space for adult education. A new wing on the main floor with natural lighting and a secure entrance would create a dedicated Sunday School place for 1st through 5th-grade children.
Create a Child Development Center: A preschool is one of the greatest evangelism tools available to churches today. Families who would never dream of visiting a new church, walk through the doors—thinking they are looking for care for their children—and they end up finding Christ. Our part-time preschool would grow into a full-time Child Development Center, filling a pressing need for families who want a Christian environment for their children. It would make good use of classrooms that sit empty during the weekdays.
Build a fellowship and education hall: A new multi-purpose space near the kitchen would enable us to double our large group gathering capacity and welcome the many groups and people whose facility use requests we currently turn away. This would resolve our need for the large group Sunday School openings.
All drawings are preliminary. Actual design will be altered and refined based upon funding and congregational approval.
Build a columbarium: A columbarium is a structure for safekeeping cremated remains in “niches” or spaces that hold urns. With a columbarium, we can still have the sense that when we go to church, we’re there with the communion of saints who have gone before us.
Pay down debt: Because we desire to be good stewards of the resources God has entrusted to us, we would only pay for our building needs with funds that we raise, while devoting additional funds toward paying down our principal early.
On Commitment Weekend, April 30/May 1, we asked all members to make generous three-year financial pledges over and beyond their current giving. Thanks to you, we exceeded our goal of $4.2 million.
