FCBC Building Expansion Project
Expanding the church for the present and future of God’s Kingdom
Over the last 118 years, FCBC has sought to serve as a spiritual home where people meet Christ, worship God, grow in their faith, find support in times of need, serve God and the community, and raise future generations of Christ followers.
In 2012 the church recognized the need to start planning for future expansion. We have experienced an ongoing shortage of sanctuary seating, Sunday School classroom and office space. The current sanctuary is also aging and in need major repairs and updating. Even though we have been able to make do, we will need more space to grow into the future and to carry out God’s ministry. After many years of exploring various alternatives, we have focused on expanding our current facilities as the best solution.
Working with a local architect, we developed the following plans (download). This will involve demolishing the current sanctuary and office space and rebuilding in an expanded area. Sanctuary seating will increase to 240 seats and will add two classrooms and two expanded pastor’s offices. The current fellowship hall will stay the same with renovations to the kitchen and restrooms.
With a total project cost of $650,000, we will need to raise an additional $250,000 to our current savings for the entire project. Our goal is to complete fundraising within 2 years to start construction by 2021. We are inviting church members and friends of the church to prayerfully consider how they can be a part of this project.
