This year, the elders have been praying and inquiring of the Lord as to the timing of each phase of Grace Beyond. In April 2015, the elders divided the Grace Beyond master plan into phases and authorized moving forward with Phase One. Construction has begun with completion expected in early 2016.
In September 2015, the elders voted unanimously to proceed with Phase Two. As Phase Two includes major renovations to our Sanctuary, we will move our Sunday morning worship services to Calvin College from April to December 2016.
In early November, the elders voted unanimously to begin Phase Three in April 2016, concurrent with the start of Phase Two. Starting the phases together will save money, reduce the overall construction timeline and provide us with the ministry space we need. This construction plan still only requires us to worship at Calvin from April to December 2016.
Please be praying for the elders and ministry teams as they plan for the transition to Calvin.
