SENT is our future-forward vision for God, for People, for a Change. We are saving funds for the construction of a permanent church home on 52nd Ave here in Allendale. We don't want to just be a bunch of saved people; we want to be a bunch of sent people. Over the next number of weeks you'll see some teasers about the vision. In February we'll kick off the next big step in the journey which will get us to 52nd Ave and a new chapter in our church!
Imagine a place and a movement where all people discover they belong and are loved by God. This is what worship is all about.
Imagine a place and a movement where all people discover their story matters to God and one another. This is what community is all about.
Imagine a place and a movement where all people discover the practical love of Jesus and that they can make a difference for God. This is what mission and serving is all about.
A place of Christ’s grace and hope. A building is not the focus of ministry. A building is just a tool for ministry and a place of grace for that vision to grow and have a face. There should always be more room at the table of God’s love. In our current leased facility that can be a challenge, especially in our kids space and with the 27 babies who have been born in the last year and a half! A church home will help us widen and deepen the table so that more people can have a seat to be SENT from. You don’t have a seat to sit in, you have a seat to be SENT from!
We're glad you asked!
Our new address will be just a few miles down the road from where we are now, and
just steps away from the campus of Grand Valley State University!
Here's some concept photos for the new building! (Colors and other small details are subject to change)
