In September, your Building Committee has made significant progress with the congregational needs assessment and other tasks.  This September update details our progress and anticipated next steps.

Architect Outreach

This team has reached out to previously identified churches with recent building experiences to visit and understand their best practices, including their experience with their architect.  These site visits were in September.  The churches visited are St Patrick’s, Epiphany, 2nd Presbyterian, St Paul’s in Decatur, and Bethel Morton.  Next steps after the visits would include identifying and interviewing potential architects.

Congregational Needs Assessment

The team has been focused on assessing and summarizing feedback from the Executive Ministry Staff and Board of Lay Ministers.  In late September, the team started working to gain insight and and hear directly from congregational members.  Small group members are targeted in late September through October.


This page is updated frequently to share our ideas, our status and timelines, our plans, and most importantly, to provide a feedback mechanism for your questions, suggestions, or other comments.  

You can also provide paper feedback using the building committee mailbox in the church office.

We value your feedback (online, paper, meetings, etc) and look forward to taking the opportunity to respond to your questions and ideas.

We look forward to sharing more information as we know it.  We would love for you to pray for God’s guidance as we continue on this journey together.

Yours in Christ,

Kirk Fuemmeler

Committee Chair
