God’s People, God’s House
A partnership between
Prairie Presbyterian Church and
Lighthouse Evangelical Arabic Church
All people, regardless of age or ethnicity, spend their life on a journey. We seek to help people find their way by pointing to the true light of life, Jesus Christ. It is only in journeying with Jesus that we can find our true home. Our common task, our common mission, is to follow Jesus together and help others do the same.
We are working together to build a new shared facility that will enable us to reach out in service with the love of Christ in even greater ways.
“The builder of all things is God. Christ is faithful as the Son in charge of God’s house. We are God’s house if we keep up our courage and our confidence in what we hope for.” - Hebrews 3:4,6
Who is the Building For?
The future building is for people who are not yet among us. Our hope is to pass on a legacy of faith, helping to grow healthy disciples in healthy congregations.
Primary uses of the building:
- Worship services
- a day care for ages 2 to 6.
- Recreation for all ages
- Concerts, coffee houses, etc.
- Meals for various groups (from small group dinners to banquet style)
- Small group meetings, committee meetings, etc.
Prairie and Lighthouse are full partners in this new facility. We will remain open to community partnerships and will work to provide space for community partnerships to develop.
Most space in the building is multi-use. The Sanctuary will be able to house worship services, concerts, and small scale recreation activities. All staging, chairs, equipment and instruments will be portable and can be stored.
Information Session on March 1st
We are excited that the first building drawings for are now available and can be views at our current space any time. On Sunday March 1st, following the worship service, our project manager, Ralph Friedenberger, and the building planning team will be providing more in depth information and more visuals of what the building could look like. At this time, the finances required and the plans for raising additional funds will also be discussed. This is your opportunity to give feedback about the drawings. We need your participation and feedback. You can also talk to members of the building planning team at anytime about the drawings.
Unless the building planning team sees the need for substantial changes to the drawings after hearing feedback on or before March 1st, we will be asking the congregation to vote on the drawings at the annual general meeting on March 15th.
