The Vision Campaign is about serving our vision to be a church of growing disciples, who are growing disciples and helping other Churches do the same. As a church we want to be constantly reaching out to people in our community who have never had a church community or have fallen away from their faith. Our current facility is filled to capacity – so much so that it is nearly impossible for our members to comfortably invite friends and family to Church. We have undertaken the Vision Campaign to build a new sanctuary so that we have available seats at optimal times for visitors and guests to be warmly welcomed and to hear the Good News of Jesus Christ.

Nativity is under construction! So much has happened over the past few months, and many exciting things are coming up. Here are some of the highlights:

In early June, we moved ductwork and started interior demolition to prepare for the demolition of the chapel. We officially received our Grading and Storm Water Management permits on June 13!

As you've seen, construction requires some internal changes! There were several partitions placed throughout the building: one inside the sanctuary (where the stairs to the new narthex will be), a partition near the Information Desk (a new hallway linking the front of our current building to the new one), and a partition in All Stars 4 (a link between current and new in the back of the building).

As a result of the construction we removed the pews closest to the old chapel wall. The pews will go back, hopefully by kickoff weekend. Towards the end of the project, we will lose those pews permanently as that space will become a stairwell to get to the new narthex.

Due to construction we also moved our handicapped parking. It is temporarily located near the Vista Lane entrance, close to the entrance to the Café.

FUN FACTS:

  • Who is the Architect? Levin Brown
  • Who is building the building? Lewis Contractors
  • How long will the project take? Complete by Fall 2017
  • Will the pews have kneelers? YES!
  • How many trucks haul dirt each day? 150!

We will keep you updated with construction on a monthly basis. If you have any questions, please email vision@churchnativity.tv.
