Rockrimmon Campus Initiative

SEPTEMBER 2017: Phase One Opens

Our new spaces for coffee and community opened on September 16! We're thanking God for his faithfulness and provision; We're fully funded and phase one of the project came in on-time and on-budget. We'll spend the next month or so training our coffee shop staff, so the next several weeks will be sort of a sneak peak, with limited menu and hours. We appreciate your patience as we gear up for a grand opening of the coffee shop later this fall.

We're also grateful to you for your generous gifts and heartfelt prayers. We're trusting God will use these spaces as tools to see ministry happen and lives changed for His glory. Phase two of the project includes amazing and fun spaces for little kids to discover the love of Jesus. Watch for more info about timelines and funding for phase two in the months ahead. Also, if you're excited about coffee and community, email Pastor Matt about joining the coffee shop team. 

To look back on some of the milestones along the way, have a look at the videos below.


MAY 2017

We received a special Rockrimmon only offering during the April 29 and 30th weekend services to reach our initial goal to begin construction on the lower level of the Rockrimmon Worship Center. Heading into the weekend, we were just $66,000 away from the $1,040,000 needed to start work.

See the latest on how God provided through the generosity of His people. We’re now one step closer to seeing a flood zone transformed into space for community and relationships, and we’re celebrating God’s faithfulness today. Thank you for joining us in rejoicing, in praying and in giving to see this Partners in the Gospel initiative come to life. Watch for phase one of the lower level to open in the fall. The second phase of the project will create awesome spaces for kids, and we’ll share more with you about what’s ahead for that part of the initiative in the months ahead.

#DEMODAY IS WITHIN REACH! 

WE'RE CLOSING IN ON OUR FIRST GOAL FOR THE ROCKRIMMON LOWER LEVEL RENOVATION. IF WE CAN REACH 80% OF THE PHASE ONE CONSTRUCTION COST BY THE END OF APRIL, WE'LL STAY ON TRACK TO BEGIN CONSTRUCTION IN MAY. THIS MEANS WE'LL HAVE AWESOME SPACES FOR COMMUNITY AND RELATIONSHIP-BUILDING READY TO GO BY FALL 2017. SO IN WEEKEND WORSHIP SERVICES AT ROCKRIMMON ON APRIL 29 AND 30, WE'LL RECEIVE A SPECIAL OFFERING TO MEET THIS GOAL. AS WE PRAY AND GIVE, WE'RE TRUSTING GOD TO MOVE THROUGH THE GENEROSITY OF HIS PEOPLE. WILL YOU PARTNER WITH US BY ASKING THE LORD ABOUT HOW HE MIGHT USE YOU IN SEEING THIS PROJECT COME TO LIFE?



 

Update on Partners in the gospel Rockrimmon

by Pastor matt Ferrell on march 19, 2017

We know that the church is made of people, not buildings. But for people to gather and thrive in community, facilities can be dynamic tools for God’s glory. Each of Woodmen’s campuses has a unique need and opportunity ahead.

The opportunity at our Rockrimmon campus was born of adversity. In 2015, a water main burst in our Worship Center, leaving the lower level flooded with 19 inches of standing water. In the aftermath, we were presented with an unexpected opening: Since the lower level now requires extensive renovation, why not rethink the best use of this space?

As our leaders and elders prayerfully considered the best course, we unanimously agreed that now is the time to reimagine the lower level in a way that will better serve the needs of our community for the future. Two key priorities emerged:

Kids – As Woodmen reaches more young families, we want to create a fun, secure, kid-friendly space in the lower level for birth through five-year-olds to experience the love of Jesus in a spot that makes life easier for new parents.

Community – Christ calls the church to care about people and relationships, but at Rockrimmon we currently have no place for people to connect in a relaxed setting.  What if we had gathering spaces for people to get to know each other and to grow in their faith? What if we had a first-rate coffee shop that not only served amazing espressos, but also became a destination for community and belonging?

We’ll see all of these spaces come to life through the Partners in the Gospel initiative. We believe this is the work God is calling us to in this season, and that these changes will set us up to reach northwest Colorado Springs for years to come.

Our long-term strategic plan also includes improved spaces for older kids and students, which will mean future updates to the Stone Chapel, Noah’s Ark and the Community Center. But we trust God will lead us when the time is right to move on these projects in the years to come.
