The following are the Church’s goals for the Master Plan:

The SGCC/CS campus is not our legacy but should reflect our core conviction that everything we do is to make the glory of God known. 

The buildings should be beautiful, simple, clean and inviting. 

There should be as much green space incorporated into the design as possible.  It should be the most calm, beautiful, inviting place in the community to visit.

Signs should clearly direct visitors where to go.  They need to be flexible enough to be clear during the week for school families, during the week for special church activities, and for those coming on a Sunday morning.

Everything on the campus should have a home and should be in its home. 

We should find an appropriate way to display appropriate art that when seen moves the heart toward worship, serves as reminders of God’s character and points people to the glory of the gospel and the grace of good on display in the gifts he has granted to those he has created. 

Interior Spaces

Create adult ground level and elevator accessible space that is specifically designed to meet the needs of the Bible Institute and Adult SS classes. This would include things such as sound, projection, food prep (snacks and coffee) areas, storage, adjustable lighting for video projection, etc.  Should also be easily accessible for future community outreach activities such as ESL classes.

Create office space that meets the needs of the entire ministry.  More pastoral offices and more space for interns. 

We need designated children’s ministry space to accommodate children from birth – 6th grade.  In general it needs to be safe, clean, welcoming and designed for children.

A space that is a designated “lounge”.  A place where you could meet and welcome church visitors, host small receptions, have a small group meeting, etc.  – inviting, comfortable.

Exterior Space

The Courtyard should be a creative green space that is designed with some flexibility to accommodate smaller groups (parents meeting, parent/teacher conf., teacher lunches, small group lunches for youth, SS lunches, a place to bring your coffee up from the café, etc).  It should also be flexible enough to provide a venue for larger gatherings such as wedding receptions or post-school graduation events.

A place where SS classes / small groups, school classes could gather for various kinds of meetings…shaded, good seating…versatile.
