The Red Chair - Representing those for whom we are making room

"Sir," the servant said, "what you ordered has been done, but there is still room."  Then the master told his servant, "Go out to the roads and country lanes and compel them to come in, so that my house will be full."
Luke 14:22-23

Learn About the Project

A Pastor's Heart

Dear Church Family

Throughout our history, Spring Creek has greatly impacted our community by providing a place for people to find hope and peace through a relationship with Jesus.  As God continues to bring more people to us, we must make room.  It's time to love our neighbors by making more room for more of them to come.  

The hope of our city is the church and we have an incredible opportunity in front of us to invest in that hope.  You see, when you invest in that hope, you invest in people.  This is not a building project, its a people project.

The growth of Spring Creek Church is ultimately not about what we can do in our own power, it's about God's power and His choice to work through us.  We must refuse to settle for anything less than God's vision for our church.  It is hard.  It requires sacrifice.  It is risky.  I know the risk, but I will not run away from what I believe God is calling us to do.

Since my family came to Spring Creek in 1987, the people of this church have stepped up to the challenge of God's call for 3 previous church growth projects.  He faithfully provided the needed resources to expand our facilities to effectively minister to our community.  I believe we can do it again and will need every one of you to help make room.

Yours for more room,
Pastor Chip
Lead Pastor


Continuous Growth

Because God continues to bring more people to Spring Creek, capacity has become an issue.

The Children's ministry facility is over capacity with AWANA attendance over 300 and Sunday Kids Creek Attendance over 350.  Some classes have to meet in the foyer on Wednesdays because there are no available classrooms.

The Student Ministry is over capacity with high school running over 110 and middle school over 130.  Overcrowded rooms are difficult environments for effective Biblical education, discussion and fellowship.

Adult life group space is also limited which does not allow us to start new life groups and classes on Wednesday night and on Sundays at 9:30 which is when the full children's ministry is provided.

There is no room to accomidate our staff growth.  We curently have staff members using closets and workrooms as offices.


Our Commitment

We are blessed to have people trying to get into Spring Creek Church, and when they do, we can strengthen them, their marriages and their families by teaching God's truth.

Our limited spaces for Children, Middle School, High School, and Adult ministries are a barrier to effective ministry.  Those barriers limit the number of children, middle/highschool students, individuals and families to whom we can minister.  There is no more room.  

Our main barrier is not lack of people, but inadequate facilities - a barrier that can be removed.

Therefore, we are committing to remove the current limitations of our physical facility, to reconfigure our campus for ministry effectiveness, because as Jesus told us, "Love Makes Room."

The project will be funded through the giving of the people of Spring Creek Church, enabling the church to remain debt free.  Our goal is to expand our facilities to effectively minister to more people locally and continue generously giving to other local and worldwide ministries.

We will ask the people of Spring Creek to declare their intention to support the project over a 3-year period.


Strategy and Benefits

After input from building experts and hundreds of people of Spring Creek, we have developed a "creatively frugal" strategy to reconfigure our campus for maximum ministry effectiveness, providing adequate space for children, middle/high school students, individuals, and families.

The project will involve the following:
  • Build 30,000 sq. ft children's building
  • Expand Loft area upstairs for multi-putpose use for students, 20s, and Life Groups
  • Convert current children's wing rooms for High School & Middle School use
  • Recarpet existing offices
  • Reconfigure Room 138 into office space
  • Expansion of parking lot
  • Miscellaneous sanctuary upgrades.

Ministry Benefits of the Project
  • Double the capacity for Children's ministry
  • Double the capacity for Middle and High School ministries
  • Increased capacity for Adult Life Groups
  • Increased space for Spring Creek Staff
  • Increased parking lot capacity
