June 2018 – Did you miss the architects’ presentation of a Master Plan for Peace?
Or if you heard it, would you like to see it again in a small group setting?
Three presentations are scheduled with the original power point and Ambassadors as facilitators. Ambassadors are those who met three times with the architects to develop the plan.
- Thursday, June 14th, 11:30 am in the fellowship hall
- Friday, June 22nd, 6:30 pm — with the added bonus that it will be a potluck supper.
Each presentation will be approximately 45 minutes, discussion is encouraged.
May 2018 – What We Will Learn at the May 20th meeting!
Peace Lutheran Church is developing a long-range facilities master plan that charts a path for the future to support our congregation’s goals and vision. MTFA Architecture and representatives from our church will present the process and the master plan on May 20th.
The presentation will summarize findings of a weekend Visioning Workshop and two other evenings where twenty-five representatives of Peace ministries met with the architects. These meetings helped us prioritize values and needs. Together, we explored facilities that align with the ministry goals of the church as it seeks to live out its mission to share God’s love, grow in faith and create community. As Peace Lutheran looks to respond to our needs and those of our neighbors, the master plan
- embodies a welcoming spirit in the physical campus
- improves the quality and flow of space
- creates program space for all ages
- serves as an example of sustainable design.
- conveys an informal refuge for the immediate and worldwide community.
The strengths and limitations of the current facility were analyzed and are transformed in an efficient, sustainable and inclusive hub in our community. The master plan has five construction phases that creates the greatest impact to the life of the church while maintaining a manageable timeline for budgeting and fundraising. It is an inspiring plan for our congregation!
April 2018 – Reviewing Plans
The Peace Ambassadors have met three times with architects to put bones around our vision. Here they are, reviewing the draft master plan. The Ambassadors are twenty-five people representing the major ministries and communities within Peace. The congregation will have a chance to review and give feedback on May 20.
April 2018 – Community Engagement
Peace is mobilizing a team of neighborhood churches around refugee settlement. On April 7, we hosted a film, Salam Neighbor, panel discussion and dinner to raise awareness. Our campaign funds a part-time Community Outreach Coordinator, Nadia Fitzcharles, who is coordinating this effort.
April 2018 – New Piano!
Thanks to a generous donor to the capital campaign, as well some money from the music fund, we were able to get a truly beautiful instrument that will last generations. Our Yamaha Baby Grand came on April 18! Look for it’s dedication sometime in June.
