THE BIG PICTURE
We know that the church is made of people, not buildings. But for people to gather and thrive in community, facilities can be dynamic tools for God’s glory. Each of Woodmen’s campuses has a unique need and opportunity ahead. At Woodmen Heights, the challenge is expanding and updating our spaces to enable us to better live out Woodmen’s four values: Gather, Connect, Grow and Contribute.
Kids and Community
As our leaders and elders prayerfully considered the future of Woodmen Heights, we unanimously agreed that now is the time to reimagine our campus in a way that will serve the needs of our community for the future. Two key priorities emerged:
Kids – As we reach more young families, we want to create a fun, secure, kid-friendly space in the lower level for boys and girls to experience the love of Jesus.
Community – Christ calls the church to care about people and relationships, so we want to make a spot for people to connect in a relaxed setting. What if we had a first-rate coffee shop that not only served amazing espressos, but also became a destination for to know each other and to grow in their faith? What if the audio-visual equipment in our auditorium made it look and sound less like a gym and more like a worship center?
We’ll see these ideas come to life through the Partners in the Gospel initiative. We believe that these changes will set us up to reach northeast Colorado Springs for years to come. Let’s have a look at how this project will enable us to better fulfill our commitment, as individuals and as a church, to Gather, Connect, Grow and Contribute.
