BEYOND THE BUILDING UPDATE
THANK YOU to every parishioner, visitor, friend, family member, and well-wisher for your support of this Capital Campaign! Without your help and enthusiasm, the Parish Life Complex would not now be a reality!
We have entered our final year of the Beyond the Building campaign! LET’S REACH OUR GOAL TOGETHER!
To the many wonderful parishioners and givers who have pledged to the Beyond the Building Campaign: we are nearing the finish line. We ask that you please continue to fulfill your pledged gifts as we draw nearer to our goal. We want to extend an enormous thank you to all who have pledged funds to our Beyond the Building campaign so far. We have a total of $2,960,622.00 pledged to be donated to the Beyond the Building Fund. We currently have received over $2.7 million of those pledged funds! This is an INCREDIBLE accomplishment! But, to maintain our financial stability it is vital that those who have pledged continue to fulfill their pledges. We can do this! As we continue to trust God and remain faithful in our commitment, our vision will be achieved!
For anyone who has not already made a pledge or who wishes to increase their pledge, donations can be made online or in person. Building Fund Envelopes can be found in the Literature Rack in the main entrances to the Church. You can turn in all envelopes and checks to Cheryl Harper, Finance Administrative Assistant, at the Parish Office or in the collection baskets during Mass (MEMO: Building Fund). You can also contact Cheryl at 502-425-3940, ext. 107 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Construction Began on October 9, 2017 and the Dedication occurred on September 16, 2018!

THREE BUILDINGS: ONE PLACE TO GATHER, LEARN & SERVE
The Parish Life Complex
The Parish Life Complex consists of three buildings: Hendricks Hall, Willett Gym, and a new hospitality space called the Conference Center. Integrated into a single facility, the Parish Life Complex has a shared entrance and architecture that complements our campus identity. Renovated spaces in Hendricks Hall include the Lower Level meeting rooms which have been upgraded to include multiple improvements to flooring and added sound paneling on the walls. A brand new Preschool Classroom was also built on the main level of Hendricks Hall. In Willett Gym a brand new wood floor was installed as well as retractable bleachers, a new indoor/outdoor concession stand, new sprinkler system, and new sound paneling. Additionally, the second floor of Willett Gym was updated with all new lighting, flooring, and furniture. The Vikings Room, a multipurpose meeting space, was outfitted with AV equipment as well for successful meetings. The Youth Room transformed into an open and modern space for our youth to meet. Renovating existing resources is cost effective, good for the environment and expedites the building process thus allowing physical construction to be completed in less than 12 months. Construction began in October 2017 and our dedication was held September 2018!
The Conference Center, the brand new portion of the Complex, includes a loft space and large lobby called the Mezzanine and Welcome Center respectively. Additionally a large conference room which can be divided into a number of configurations for multipurpose useage allows the community to gather to learn, grow, and have fun! A large storage space, restrooms, and a completely outfitted Warming Kitchen round out this amazing space.
Our new Parish Life Complex provides needed space and updated facilities for parishioners of all ages and will continue to do so for future generations!
