"Your Oasis On The Journey"
"To oversee the design and construction of a new home for Palmas Community Church that will provide for the needs of the entire church community including Worship, Fellowship, Outreach Ministries, Pastoral Care, Christian Education, and a Sanctuary for those in need."
The new church facility will be a two-story structure located on the property we own next to the PHA building. It will consist of two levels of 6,000 square feet. The main level will be our worship and fellowship center, and the lower level will house rooms for Christian education, study, small groups. The lower level will also have a nursery, offices, kitchen, food pantry, and emergency services support.CLICK HERE TO SEE THE PLANS
The committee will create a bid package once the final drawings are complete and approved. The committee will submit that bid package to potential contractors in late November, assuming no delays. We should have a fixed project amount in January and will create a capital campaign.
The committee is committed to design and build a facility that is as energy-efficient and environmentally friendly as possible. Solar panels, LED lighting, water-saving fixtures, etc. One of our committee members is LEED certified. LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is an internationally recognized green building certification system, providing third-party verification that a building or community was designed and built using strategies aimed at improving performance across all the metrics that matter most: energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality, and stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impacts.
Because construction costs have skyrocketed in 2021, we estimate the new facility will require $2.7 million to be raised.
The architectural review board and PHA will require that a significant amount of the funds needed to complete the project be secured before construction begins.
PCC has signed a long-term lease at the Yacht Club. Our new location will provide dedicated space for Worship, Fellowship, Christian Education (Youth-Adult), Sunday School, Nursery, Small Groups, and offices.
