The "God Can" Campaign is an effort to raise funds for our new children's wing. This wing will provide spacious classrooms for preschoolers (infants through kindergarten). It contains an upstairs room around 2800 sq.ft for children's church. The wing also includes a commons area that connects this preschool space with our present worship space. The commons includes an inviting coffee bar with room for fellowship for people of all ages.
The building contains approximately 9500 square feet, the projected cost for the building itself is around $522,000. This equates to $55/square foot. The reason we have been able to construct this building at such an affordable rate is because of the contribution of countless hours by skilled volunteer workers, both from our church and from the Texas Baptist Men who spent two weeks on our sight, helping primarily with the interior framing.
This cost, however, does not include other priorities that we believe are very important for our church. In addition to the building, we have already made a $59,000 investment in a top of the line playground environment. Also the new wing will have an elevator and state of the art audio, visual, and lighting (AVL) capabilities for the upstairs worship space, the downstairs classrooms and the commons area. We estimate the cost of the elevator to be $45,000 and the cost of the AVL needs is $42,000. This brings our total fundraising needs to $687,000.
