Honoring Our Past – Ensuring Our Future Capital Campaign

Honoring Our Past – Ensuring Our Future is East Heights’ capital campaign launched in 2016 for facility enhancements. The theme communicates our intention to celebrate East Heights’ history and improve the church facilities to make sure we can continue to grow and serve our members and the community for generations to come.

The mission of East Heights is to love God and our neighbor, trusting that Jesus Christ will use our efforts to transform the world.

To accomplish that mission, we need to strengthen our “foundation” by completing vitally needed building improvements:

  • The heating, ventilation and air-conditioning system will be replaced along with paying for the new boiler for the sanctuary that was recently installed.
  • The stage in Hedrick Hall will be replaced to allow easy stowage so that the floor can be cleared to regain the use of the hall for recreational or other congregational and community events.
  • The lighting controls in the sanctuary need to be replaced. The controls no longer function fully and cannot be repaired because of age.
  • The worship spaces will receive visual media capabilities and enhancements. Technology has advanced to make this feasible for all worship spaces and styles.
  • Accessibility to chancel spaces and seating will be improved.

The total cost is approximately $1.4 million. Our goal is to raise enough to cover all projects. Throughout the next few months, more detail will be provided regarding each project.

We ask that you pray for God’s guidance throughout this process as well as for the campaign volunteers and our entire faith community. This is an important moment in our church’s history and we thank you for your interest.
