Imagine a new entrance standing proudly welcoming our community into our beloved church. This structure will be a place where new beginnings take shape, where lives are transformed, and where our mission flourishes.

  1. A New Prominent Entrance (Bridges into the Church)
    The new building project includes a magnificent entrance that will serve as a warm and inviting gateway to our church. This entrance will not only be aesthetically pleasing but will also symbolize the open and welcoming nature of our community.
  2. Collaborative Staff Offices (Bridges of Teamwork)
    Our dedicated staff members deserve a workspace that fosters collaboration and empowers them in their calling. The new building will incorporate modern, well-designed offices that will encourage teamwork, innovation, and a more streamlined approach to serving our community.
  3. Expanded Hospitality Area (Bridges in Fellowship)
    We believe that community building is an integral part of our church experience. To facilitate this, the new building project will feature a larger hospitality area where we can gather, enjoy a cup of coffee, and build relationships before and after worship services. This space will provide an opportunity for meaningful connections to flourish among our members.
  4. Family Check-In Area (Bridges to Families)
    We understand the importance of creating a secure and nurturing environment for our families. The new building will include a dedicated family check-in area designed to make parents feel at ease and children excited to embark on their faith-building journey. This space will ensure a seamless and safe experience for families as they participate in our various programs.


BUILDING BRIDGES is a building project that encompasses a new 3,000 sq. ft. office addition and a 1500 sq. ft. central corridor renovation to the campus of First Methodist Church.

How much is the building going to cost?
Currently the price of the project is 1.1 million dollars.

How is the church going to pay for it?
Currently we have received roughly half the amount from insurance payments when the building flooded. The other half will be paid for by previous building campaign funds.

Will the church have to borrow money?
There will not be any need to borrow money for the project. We have enough money from insurance and previous building fundraisers to pay for this addition. The money from previous building campaigns that were never spent must be used for new construction.

How long is the construction estimated to take?
The estimated time of construction is approximately 6 months.

When are we hoping to start construction?
We have been working diligently with our designer and general contractor.  Our hope is to break ground by Summer 2023.  Obviously there are a lot of variable factors when it comes to construction so we are taking it one step at a time.  We will keep you informed as things develop.
