We are starting to experience full rooms in Lakeshore Kids
On high attendance Sundays, some of our children’s classrooms are approaching full capacity. And as the church grows and more children attend, the problem becomes more critical to resolve sooner than later.
We will reach more children
We will have spacious and creatively themed rooms for children so that we send a clear message to parents and their children that they are valued by God and by us.
We don’t have the right space for Students
There is no appropriate large group space for our students to meet in so they currently meet in a smaller room that wasn’t intended for this purpose. This limits how we can connect with them and sends the wrong message about their importance in our church.
We will reach more students
We will have the right staffing, the right environments, and the right-sized rooms so that our current and future Middle and High Schoolers have every opportunity to learn about Jesus, grow in Him, and have fun.
Adults have no free rooms on Sundays creating a bottleneck
Currently, there are no rooms available for adults to meet in on Sunday mornings. This creates challenges for classes, groups and seminars that could reach more people if they were held during these times.
We will help more adults on Sundays and eliminate bottlenecks
With the addition of the Lakeshore Kids and Student rooms along with the addition of a ceiling-to-floor curtain in the gym, we will be able to hold adult classes during Sunday services in the newly freed up room 110.
We need funding to keep reaching our community
Over the past two years, we have helped people all around Rochester through the Making Waves Serve Initiative. We help groups like schools, organizations, sports leagues, and churches with a variety of projects they need help with and these projects require funding.
We will continue to reach Rochester outside our walls
We will strengthen our Making Waves Serve Initiatives all around Greece and Rochester so that we can reach people where they are. We will continue honoring God and communicating our love to people who may be open to the Good News of Jesus in tangible ways.
We need to support the poor and worldwide missions
Over the past five years, we have partnered with Feed My Starving Children and ORPHANetwork (in Nicaragua) and they need our financial support to accomplish all they do for the physically and spiritually needy in our world. And this support only comes from Making Waves 2020.
We will increase our support for the poor and global missions
We will maintain and strengthen our partnerships with Feed My Starving Children, ORPHANetwork, and other international missions partners so that we impact the poor and hungry beyond Rochester.
