On September 14th, 2018, after 8 years of renting, we purchased the Anita M. Stone Jewish Community Center in Flossmoor, Illinois. This is a huge God Story!
In the fall of 2017, the owners of the property accepted our $500k offer on the 24k square foot building that sits on almost nine acres of land. On April 1, 2018 our church began a 2-year capital campaign and we were able to raise over $200k in just 6 months - enough for the down payment and and much of the cost of a new roof.
Now that we have moved from renters to owners, we are dreaming about transforming the space into a warm and inviting place where people will want to come and stay. As we’ve engaged this process, we’ve been reminded of God’s faithfulness over the years and that His plans for us include doing what seems impossible, or as the Apostle Paul says in Ephesians 3:20, “more than we can ask or even imagine.”
The story and details for our remodeling plans and phases can be found in our Imagine Booklet. We want to make a significant investment in our largest physical asset, which also happens to be our primary tool for Kingdom ministry.
Join us in praying for a miraculous flow of financial resource and for continued favor as we lean in to what God has for us.
