The goal of Project 2019 is to install a fire sprinkler system throughout our main building on Centre Avenue.
According to a recent update of the National Fire Code, every room in our facility requires a certain level of fire protection. Renovation Church was able to install much of our fire protection system as part of Project 2018, which included beacons, pull stations, and system monitoring. Now, all that remains is the building-wide sprinkler system. This is the primary focus of Project 2019.
We want to make sure that Renovation Church is safe, protected, and up to code . In order to meet federal and local fire requirements, we must have the sprinkler system installed and functional by July 1, 2019.
Current cost projection is $105,000 for the sprinkler system and $45,000 for affected building updates and contingency. Our project goal is to raise $150,000 by December, 2019.
WHAT CAN I DO RIGHT NOW?
Pray that we are able to quickly reach our financial goal, that it doesn’t add strain to our budget, and that the project goes off without any unexpected and expensive discoveries along the way. Pray that this doesn’t become a distraction but rather a time where the glory and generosity of God is miraculously apparent, which will only testify to His goodness and grace. Pray that more people will find, follow, and be like Jesus through something as peculiar as a fire prevention system, remembering that God works in mysterious ways.
How is God moving your heart to be part of Project 2019? Are there ways that, in response to God’s generosity, you might be able to respond to this important and timely need? Any money that is raised before the job begins in early 2019 will help ease potential financial pressure and will help us reach our goal as we work together.
Watch the Lord work as we continue this journey in becoming a multisite church. Watch for opportunities to proclaim the faithfulness of God as you trust Him more. Watch for a bunch of sprinkler heads to show up in places you’ve never even noticed before!
