What’s Next for Grace Beyond
- What is next for Grace Beyond?
The next step in the Grace Beyond building project is the pledge process. Giving brochures and pledge cards will be available beginning February 15, 2015. Prior to that date, the elders are asking the congregation to spend time prayerfully considering what the Lord is asking each person to give toward Grace Beyond. If you would like a pledge card now or would like to meet with a member of the Grace Beyond finance team to discuss your gift, please contact Ron Haas at 890-4414.
- How long will the pledge process last?
Pledge cards will be due Sunday, March 29, which is Palm Sunday. The church will begin Holy Week with our pledges to continue the work of Christ and His kingdom that was inaugurated as the result of His journey to the cross.
- If we receive pledges totaling $25 million, what happens next?
The architect and construction manager recommend that we completely vacate the sanctuary and east wing of the building for the initial six months of construction. The leadership hopes that construction can begin in June 2015.
- Where will we worship for six months?
The church leadership is currently exploring options in Grand Rapids that will allow us not only to worship but also provide additional meeting facilities. As soon as we have more details, we will inform the congregation.
