Building the Vision

Building the Vision

On October 3, 2021, we launched a three-year capital campaign called "Building the Vision". We praise God for His sustaining grace for 11 years of Christ Redeemer Church's existence! Our "church" is not a building (it's the people!), but we believe a building can help facilitate our mission to make disciples through gospel-centered community on mission. 

Our Challenge

While we are thankful for God's provision of East Ridge High School, it has brought significant challenges, such as:

  • A building design that hinders our Sunday worship experience and is not accessible or welcoming.
  • Substantial setup and teardown, leading to significant volunteer fatigue.
  • Distractions and potentially unsafe conditions when sharing the facility with other groups.
  • Limited weekday access for disciple-making opportunities.
  • Lack of onsite office space.
  • Limited visibility in the community.
  • And more!

Our Need

Having our own building could address these challenges and greatly facilitate our mission by providing:

  • An accessible, inviting space for Sunday worship.
  • Ample, available space for childcare, children’s devotions, and classes.
  • Reduced setup and teardown.
  • 24/7 access for all ages, Life Groups, events, and/or community outreach.
  • Onsite office space.
  • Increased visibility in the community.
  • And more!

Our Plan

  • We are looking at Woodbury and surrounding areas for a facility best suited to our needs.
  • Financial consultants estimate our church could potentially raise $750,000 with a capital campaign.
  • However, we anticipate ultimately needing at least $1.25 million – and possibly more – for an adequate facility.

Our Call

You play a key role in helping us "build our vision" together! Please join us in praying for:

  • God’s providential leading and provision.
  • Wisdom in decisions that will need to be made, unity, and our church leaders.
  • How God would have you give to further our church’s mission to make disciples through gospel-centered community on mission.
