What an exciting time to be a part of X Factor Church!
You may have noticed that over the past several weeks, we have been growing by leaps and bounds! We are seeing God move in very great and very specific ways. One of those ways is out new Tuesday Trax. This is a Tuesday night time where we are providing a dinner and Bible study options for the whole family. Honestly this was something that we had planned on launching in the Fall, but God had other plans. It has been nothing short of miraculous, the way that He has put every piece in its place. But this brings us to a really good problem.
For quite some time, the leadership has known that our current facility is far too small for what God is doing and the plans that we feel He has for us. While our worship area can facilitate a bit more growth, the major problem has been with educational space and office space. We simply do not have room to accommodate the classes that we need to. At this point, God has not yet provided the resources or the location for us to make a move. Our plans is to not abandon our current location but rather use it as a ministry hub. That being said, we have an imminent need for more space.
We have located a temporary solution that will give us an additional 1280 square feet of flexible space to use for classroom, hospitality and more. Better yet, it is portable so when and if we get an additional location, we can take it with us. As we are all aware, everything is becoming extremely expensive, and yet we have found a bargain! We can add this space within a couple of weeks of paying for it. It also is going to cost less than $40 per square foot. If you know anything about construction or buildings, you know that is an unbelievable deal.
We do not talk about money much at the X. We believe that your finances are between you and God. We teach stewardship and generosity, but eventually what you do with your money is up to you. That being said, we are asking the church to consider a very quick capital campaign. $50,000 sounds like a lot of money, and it is. But we feel that the additional space will allow us to continue on the growth curve that God has put us on. We know that we need more space and unless we get a few million dropped in our lap, we are going to have to continue to make the current location work as well as we can.
So we would ask you to pray about helping us reach this goal. We need to move quickly to get things rolling. Maybe you have some funds you didn’t even know that you would have. Maybe you know some people that might be interested in helping us. Maybe you can only contribute a little. Maybe you can just pay for the whole thing! No matter where you find yourself right now, please be praying about how God might be leading you in this.
If you would like to contribute, please make sure that you designate your gift for the building campaign. You can give online, but because of the fees that are involved, maybe consider a check or cash. If you need to make the donation with a card, then, by all means, use the online giving option.
We are so excited to see God moving and we are so glad that we all get to make an impact on the Kingdom of God together.
Please feel free to reach out with any questions.
