We Are MovingWritten by admin on Jan 26, 2013 in - No Comments
Kevin and I wanted to send everyone a brief explanation regarding our announcement this past Sunday concerning our change in location and service time starting in February.
As most of you already know, the Palace 9 Theater changed ownership a few months ago, and the new owners raised our rent. For the last few months, we’ve been paying a significantly higher amount than what we anticipated paying for space. This change, along with the time constraint (3 hour Sunday rental), limitations with the children’s space, difficulty with coffee set-up, and storage complications, immediately led us to begin looking for a new temporary space to meet in on Sunday.
Finding rental space specifically zoned for “place of assembly” in the Burlington area is most difficult and rather expensive. After looking at the options available to us, it became clear to our leadership team that the most viable option was the one that allowed us to best accomplish our vision and goals for the coming year.
That being said, starting in February, we will be meeting at the First Baptist Church, located on 81 St. Paul street in Burlington @ 4PM. While this move is a temporary one, we realize that a change in location and service time can prove difficult for folks. And we understand that it may cause schedule complications for some within our community. Please know that we did not come to this decision easily. It is something we prayed about, considered, and talked through for many hours, days and weeks before making our decision.
Our hope, as a leadership team, is that this move will put our community in a much better place financially to step into a more permanent space in the near future. A space that allows us to serve God and others in a greater capacity than we’re currently able to do!
It is such a privilege to worship, serve and live alongside all of you! Thank you so much for your passion, commitment, investment and service. If you have any questions about the move, please feel free to contact one of us!
