The contemporary styling of the 15,000 square foot phase 1 facility captures your attention.
The covered awning calls you into an inviting, welcoming lobby. It is the perfect place to connect and hang out with a cup of coffee from the café.
The gathering space for adult worship seats 300, allowing us to double our size in three services. It also serves as a multi-purpose room, providing opportunities for church and community to meet all week long.
There is a “cry room” and adult meeting space off the worship area, and a couple of small meeting rooms and administrative offices will meet basic staffing needs.
Most significantly, the safe, state-of-the art, wow-factor kids wing attracts and impact families for Christ. It also functions a top-rated, professionally managed, non-denominational Christian early learning center throughout the week. This helps us connect with more families and provides significant economic sustainability.
Because God’s heart is always to reach and restore more people, we will eventually need a larger worship space to accommodate them, but we don’t ever want to lose the connected, family-feel of LifeSpring. Phase 2 includes a 500 seat multi-purpose room with supporting rooms, new adult classrooms and full administrative offices. The Phase 1 workshop area becomes a much larger connection space, which significantly increases our ability to build community.
Philosophically, we’d rather send people out to plant churches and missional communities rather than become a huge, industrial mega-monstrosity, so Phase 3 does not include a massive auditorium for worship services. Rather, it expands the number of children’s youth, and adult meeting space. It also provides flexibility to repurpose the administrative offices as God leads perhaps as counseling and prayer rooms. Most significantly, it provides a recreation space with a full-size basketball court and locker rooms for community use and outreach.
