First Congregational’s plans includes being good stewards of their building and transforming the spaces surrounding their sanctuary to be more open, secure, and inviting; to make their building as welcoming as its membership. Due to the extensive nature of this vision, they will implement it in phases. Phase I includes the sanctuary wall restoration, creation of an atrium, and many additional main level enhancements. Phase II will allow for other renovations and ministry enhancements.

Helping Churches Reach New Heights in their Capital Campaigns
Our mission is to be great stewards, to live up to the Parable of Talents and to bring out the best in those we serve. Our consistent and proven-to-be-successful approach to directing church capital campaigns helps assure this. We just work with churches, only do capital campaigns and ground them in prayer, scripture and sound stewardship teachings. Then we combine this with practical, proven-to-be-most-productive operating methods. This not only assures you of getting the best results and best return on your capital campaign investment financially, but also, that your church will grow spiritually and in community and will be more equipped and excited than ever about doing God’s will through the works of your church.
