Monument Celebration Service


In our journey toward a permanent church home for Woodmen Monument, it’s time to celebrate what God has done and to look forward with anticipation to what’s on the horizon. Join us from the comfort of your home to watch this special Monument Campus online celebration service.

Pastor Josh will share an inspiring vision for our new campus. Pastor Doug and Ed Houle will be on hand to update us on progress so far (The land purchase is complete and work is beginning on the property)! We’ll hear more about the financial need and the opportunity to give generously to this project that will become a hub of community and an outpost of hope in Monument for generations to come. We’ll give thanks to the Lord and dedicate this land to His purposes. Woodmen worship will lead us in songs of praise. That’s a lot to accomplish in less than an hour, so round up your family, get cozy on the couch, get ready to receive what God has for you and press play on the video above.


It’s exciting to see a dream coming to reality. And that’s exactly where we, Monument Campus, find ourselves at this point. Since our beginning in December 2015, Monument Campus has continued to expand and grow leading us to campaign for a permanent church home. Our first challenge was to raise $1.45M to purchase land – which became a reality on June 25, 2020, when we purchased 5.45 prime acres of land west of I-25 and north of Baptist Rd. We now press on to raise funds to cover our preconstruction phase to complete everything necessary to begin preparing the land for the building our future church home.



Goal: $3,500,000
$48,507 Raised

THE LATEST AND GREATEST

Land ––Thanks to donations from the congregation, a 5.45-acre premier site in the Conexus Business Park has been purchased and paid in full.

Site Plan ––The site plan has been fully approved.

Scope of Project ––The project includes a two-story building. Both stories will be completed simultaneously.

Facility Design ––Final construction drawings have been completed and submitted to the General Contractor for final bidding.

Construction Timeline ––The timeline for the entire construction project has been finalized. The project timeline is estimated to be 12-13 months with occupancy projected to be late Fall 2021.

Construction Update ––The first step in the overall construction plan is the grading of the land and other preconstruction items. This phase is scheduled to begin the first week in November. Presently the construction site has been fenced off and construction trailers should be delivered in early November.

Construction Line-of-Credit (LOC) –– We are presently finalizing the Line of Credit. The Line of Credit will be used to supplement funds that are needed to complete the building prior to the fulfillment of the congregation’s three-year pledge commitment.

Partners in the Gospel (PITG) –– The title of our fundraising campaign is Partners in the Gospel (PITG). It is based on Philippians 1:3-5 “I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy, because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now.”

Pledge Campaign –– A pledge drive is a standard tool utilized during capital campaigns to help project what funding may be expected to be received throughout a three-year pledge period. Although a non-binding commitment, it provides financial data which is critical in determining a cash flow projection to meet construction costs.

The Gospel

It’s the true story of God’s rescuing love—the life-changing good news of Jesus. God calls us to be partners in the gospel, inviting us to live in ways that welcome others to join us in the gospel story. 

We commit to gather in worship, to connect and grow in caring community, and to contribute through serving and giving sacrificially. As we follow Christ’s lead, our priorities shift and our horizons expand. When each of us lives this way, imagine what we can accomplish together for God’s glory! 

“I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy, because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now.”– Philippians 1:3-5

THE BIG PICTURE

In just four short years, God has grown our Monument Campus to more than 1,000 people gathering each weekend. To His glory, more than 2,300 friends and neighbors joined us to celebrate the risen Christ in Easter services this year! 

We believe He has even greater things in store.

The next three years will be pivotal for our church community and for the Tri-Lakes region. Homes are being built all around our campus, and that means thousands of new families and friends moving into the area—people who desperately need the hope that only Christ brings.

Since our campus began, our elders and leaders have been praying, dreaming and seeking the Holy Spirit’s guidance for a new, permanent church home for Woodmen Monument. We believe now is the time, through God’s provision, to take the next step! God is calling us to catch hold of this new vision for a church home and to see it come to life through our prayers and financial gifts.
Together, through God’s grace, we can create a home base for Woodmen Monument—for you and me—to be a transformative presence for Christ in the Tri-Lakes region. Because we want to invite every person and every family in our Monument Campus to participate, we’re calling this initiative Partners in the Gospel.

Location Location LOCATION

We believe the Lord planted us here to be a light for the people of the Tri-Lakes region, and now He’s led us to a parcel of land that’s located in a strategic spot for us to be a catalyst for the flourishing of our community. 

The 5.45 acre parcel is located just west of I-25, with freeway visibility and easy access from both the Baptist Road and Highway 105 exits. Recent short-term growth estimates show 2,700 new homes being built within a seven-minute drive of this location.

Our future site is located in a business park with easy access and no residential neighbors who will be troubled by the additional weekend traffic and parking that a church brings. Add in stunning, west-facing mountain views, and we’ve got an ideal location for our new building!

This future Monument church home will be a hub that allows us, as a congregation, to better reach the Tri-Lakes region for years to come as we live out Woodmen’s values: Gather, Connect, Grow and Contribute. Let’s have a look at how the Partners in the Gospel initiative will help us bring these four commitments to life.

OUR VALUES IN ACTION


20180121-WH-00031-web-400.jpg

GATHER

Imagine a gathering place—not just a school that we rent for a few hours on weekends, but a permanent church home that’s alive with activity and hope seven days a week.

How might God multiply our impact in our community through ministry spaces that are bursting at the seams with kids on Wednesday night, moms growing their faith on Tuesday, men meeting the sunrise on Thursday to start the day off studying God’s word, and weddings on a summer Saturday?

Our new building will include a state-of-the-art auditorium, with comfortable seating for more than 500 people to gather in worship. With three services each weekend, when you add kids classes into the mix, this facility could be home to a church of 1,800!

CONNECT

Our new atrium will provide plenty of room to connect with old friends and meet new ones before and after services and throughout the week. This space will include a coffee bar where neighbors can connect over scripture, and friendly baristas will serve families hot chocolates topped with swirls of fresh whipped cream.

Our multi-use community spaces will also host Bible studies and other ministry events throughout the week. We believe God can use this atmosphere to help Woodmen feel like home for you and for guests on the verge of finding a church.

GROW

The gospels make it clear that children hold a special place in the heart of Jesus, so we want to be a church that welcomes little ones to experience God’s love and helps moms and dads feel at home.

As we reach more families, our new church building will be home to fun, secure spaces for boys and girls to grow. We’ll triple the size of our current kids area!

There’ll be a large-group space where boys and girls can express their joy in energetic ways, as well as smaller classrooms for children to make crafts, learn, pray, and get to know the heart of Jesus.

CONTRIBUTE

As people who seek to contribute to the work of God’s Kingdom, we find ways to serve in our church, our city and beyond. We aspire to contribute in every aspect of our lives, whether that’s showing kindness to neighbors on our street or flying across the world to share God’s love.

We also look to make a Kingdom impact with the way we steward our finances. Our upcoming Monument Partners in the Gospel building initiative offers each of us a unique opportunity to invest financially in a way that will continue to change lives in our community for decades to come.
