Building Project Update (January 13)

Thank you for your ongoing support and prayer for this project! Please see this month’s construction and capital campaign update below. We hope this information is helpful.


Exciting work continues in the Lower Level of our facility. Here are some of the things that have happened this past month as the Connecting Generations Building Project continues.

Progress this Past Month

  • Mold remediation and painting of ceiling is complete.
  • Plumbing rough-ins are completed and concrete has been poured around rough-ins.
  • New metal partition walls have been made – thanks to many volunteers over the holidays.
  • Most of the metal partition walls have been put up by ES Construction!
  • Steel beams and support posts with footings have been installed for new wider doors and corridors.
  • Exterior foundation walls have been supported with steel beams to prevent further bowing in the walls. Foundation walls also have been framed in with steel studs.
  • HVAC ducts have been delivered and installed in Fellowship Hall and north side of Children’s area.
  • Three additional furnaces (no longer in use) have been donated to New Beginnings Ministries of Peoria

Progress Happening Soon

  • Electrical work to be completed soon.
  • Cabling for networking and tech will be installed
  • Drywall and insulation installation in walls (this is an upcoming volunteer opportunity).
  • HVAC work will continue.

See a Video walk through of progress so far as of January 12th.


Here are some new pictures of the ongoing progress.



Thanks for your ongoing support! Your generosity is making it possible for us to accomplish this renovation with God’s help. We truly believe that this project will prepare a strong foundation for our ministry to connect people to God’s love in Peoria for years to come.

Please see the slides below from Ken Roat’s (capital campaign chair) presentation in our monthly update. We have reached 61% of our fundraising goal of $600,000. Please pray with us this year as we seek to close the gap toward completing our goal. If you have questions about making a pledge, adjusting a pledge, or about giving toward the campaign please contact our treasurer, Steve Vance.
