November 7, 2017 marks 13 years since we started the church. Since that day, we have been on an amazing journey, one that Melissa and I wouldn’t trade for anything in the world. While we are forever thankful for all that God has done over the years, we know that it doesn’t begin to compare to what He has in store! As we celebrate this anniversary of the church, we felt like it would be the perfect time to also introduce some exciting changes that will be taking place when we move to our new location. We would like to officially introduce to you today the future name of our church, Restore Church. We believe that Restore Church is a new name for a greater vision. Our current name describes where we are but our new name speaks to who we are. We are really excited about making this change! In addition to sharing with you the new church name, we also want to bring you up to speed on where we are with the Beyond Boundaries Project.
God’s grace has been abounding towards us and we have made great progress since our last update. When we first launched the project this past August, we set what we’ve called our 250 Seat Goal. At $3,200.00 per seat, the project will be paid in full. Our initial goal was to pay for 79 of the 250 seats in order to purchase the property and begin the building renovations. We’re excited to announce that since our last update, we have officially reached our first goal of 79 seats! As of today, 80 seats have been paid for, leaving only 170 seats to pay off the project. God is so good!!!
In addition to paying off the project, our goal now is to move things along as fast as possible. Thanks to some pretty amazing volunteers, the clean-up and demo work out at the property has been going well. We’re also working with an architect and a civil engineer to finalize the necessary plans for building renovations and parking lot construction. We do not have a definite timeline yet as to when we will be able to move onto the property but we will be sure to let you know just as soon as we have more information.
We especially want to thank all of you that have given and continue to give towards this project. You are helping us go beyond our boundaries as a church in order to impact this area with the gospel of Jesus! We are sincerely grateful for your support. Together, by God’s grace, we are taking the land!
Much love and blessings,
Jordan & Melissa Gash, Pastors
