Build + Multiply Capital Appeal

  • Living Word launched a Capital Appeal in April of 2022 with the hopes of completing a major building project.
  • The main needs of the church include the below.
    • more classroom space,
    • additional gathering space,
    • a larger fellowship hall,
    • overall safety/efficiency, and
    • office/meeting space.
  • Three Informational Sessions and one Creative Giving Event were held to inform the congregation.
    • Video recordings of these events, as well as a video rendering of the finished product, can be found below.
    • Corresponding informational packets are in the church office.
    • A Digital Flipbook, which includes the floor plans can also be found below.
  • We will build only with money we have in-hand, and will not take on additional debt!  Here’s a look at the numbers…
    • Cost of Phase 1 (Remodeling Education Wing & Youth Room):
      • Original projection of $900,000 to $1M in January 2022.
      • Revised estimate (due to inflation and HVAC upgrades) was $2.1 to 2.4 M in August 2023.
      • After due diligence and many space walkthroughs, the contractor bid from Bladholm came in at $700,000!  
    • Status of Giving – Praise God!
      • Building Fund In-Hand: $506,626
      • Capital Appeal In-Hand: $1,268,918

      • August 2023 – Revised estimate due to inflation and HVAC upgrades was over $6 M.
      • Currently – Building Committee will again display due diligence to obtain more accurate estimate, which we anticipate will be lower than the August 2023 estimate.

So the church throughout all Judea and Galilee and Samaria had peace and was being built up. And walking in the fear of the Lord and in the comfort of the Holy Spirit, it multiplied.”
