Respond & Build

God has shown us that He has amazing plans for His church, and we want to be a part of it by Honoring the Past, Responding to the Father, and Leaving a Legacy. On this page, we have outlined more details about what this means.

Honor the Past

We have been honored to have many faithful servants invest in the kingdom of God through our church. We want to honor those that have given of their time and resources to build a solid foundation for our church to continue to build upon for years to come.

“And the Lord answered me: ’Write the vision make it plain on tablets so he may run who reads it For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end—it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay.’”
Habakkuk 2:2-3

Honor the Past

We don't want to forget all the hard work that God's people have put into our church over the past decades. Part of our campaign is to ensure we honor the past and those who have faithfully served God by preserving their memory, their hard work and incorporating it into the future of our church wherever possible.
