How will building help us reach our community for Christ?
A new preschool and kids facility will allow us to reach more kids and families within the 40,000 unchurched in the Cookeville area. With this project, it will also create more space for adults to engage in God’s word through Life Groups. An expanded foyer will help provide an inviting space to those new to Stevens Street.
How will we pay for this?
Our prayer is that through the Lord’s provision that borrowing money is not necessary due to the gifts from the church. Our plan is that if we do not have the funds on hand we will be prepared to borrow the least amount of money, at the lowest possible cost, for the shortest term possible and pay it back as quickly as possible. We believe that through God’s help, our sacrificial giving, and faith, He will lead the way for future generations.
