Shine On | FAQs
When will construction start? How long will it take?
We’re hoping to begin construction in August 2018. If everything goes according to plan, we will have an enclosed second floor by Winter 2019 and be able to celebrate the grand opening in Fall 2019.
Will any parts of the building be unusable during construction?
Church activities on Sundays and weekday nights should not be affected by the construction at all - we’re working with our construction team to ensure that our these activities are not affected. This means that Sunday morning and evening services, youth events on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday nights, and most other events should go on as usual. During the workday, especially early on, we will have a crane on site some days, and the Kids areas will not be usable on these days. We do not anticipate this causing any major scheduling conflicts, but will keep our website and social media updated if anything does arise!
Why are we planning to build a second floor? Do we really need one?
When we were designing our new church building, which was completed in 2014, we originally planned for it to include a second floor, but were unable to build it due to a shortfall in our giving campaign. Fast forward to now, and we feel we are in a good place to do this financially. Additionally, our rapid growth has meant that we are now in desperate need of classrooms for adults, as well as more space for our Kids' Ministry. The second floor will also allow us to move our staff out of spaces on the first floor that were originally designed as ministry areas, which will enable us to utilize our facility more effectively.
Will my pledge amount be kept confidential?
Yes. Only our church's financial staff will be aware of your pledge amount. You will receive a receipt at the end of the year detailing your yearly giving for tax purposes and record-keeping.
How do I decide how much to give?
This decision is between you, your family, and God. That said, the Shine On brochure lists the financial information of the campaign, and offers some advice about things to consider and pray through in making this choice. You can check out the brochure by clicking this link!
Will there be any informational meetings?
Yes. We’re planning on hosting two informational meetings in the coming months. The first will be on Sunday, May 6th, at 1 PM, and the second will be held Wednesday, May 9th, at 7 PM. Both meetings will take place in the Gathering Room. These meetings are the perfect opportunity to learn the details of the plan, ask any questions you may have, and give us feedback.
Should I give the money I normally give to other Black Rock ministry funds (Missions, Deacons, etc.) to the Building Fund during this campaign?
No. We ask that your giving to the Shine On campaign be above and beyond your usual giving. We will still need to keep our existing ministries up and running during the building campaign. Because of this, if you simply redirect your usual giving to the Building Fund, we will not be able to accomplish this project.
How will parking be handled during construction?
Creatively! We’re still working out the details, but we will utilize all parking spaces available to us during construction, use our shuttle service from the Hi-Ho Hotel, and encourage carpooling during this period in order to accommodate as many people as possible on Sunday mornings during this project.
