Love God. Love People. Serve Our World.
In the Summer of 2014 we opened our newly expanded and renovated church building. Since moving into this church home we have seen a near doubling of our church family. We continue to see more and more guests come, seeking to grow in their faith. In May 2018 we launched the SHINE ON Project to help us continue to grow as we add a 16,500-square-foot second floor.
This new level will include five new rooms for ownership classes, community groups, and youth ministry. Our Kids and Student Ministries will expand with additional space for 3rd and 4th graders on Sunday and Monday nights, as well as for 5th and 6th graders on Wednesday nights. We will also have a larger dedicated space for our special needs program both on Sundays and through the week.

The Second Floor
This church building was originally designed to have a second floor, but we could not construct this much-needed space in 2014 due to a lack of funding.
Now's the time to complete our building!

Eliminating Our Mortgage
Our current facility was financed with a mortgage of $4.7 million. Due to the generosity of God's people at Black Rock, we have paid down our debt to $2.45 million. We believe that God is calling us to make the elimination of our mortgage a priority during this new campaign.
Your Place in Our Vision
We aspire to have 100 percent of Black Rock's Christ-followers financially participate in this Shine On partnership. We will not all give the same amount, but unity is important to Jesus, and we want to take up this call together. In that spirit, we pray that all those who call Black Rock Church "home" will be united by participating in this mission to Shine On as one for God's glory.
We are so excited about this new campaign, and we believe that God is leading us into this project to reach more people with the hope of the gospel. As an individual or together as a household, will you prayerfully consider joining us by making a two-year commitment to this project?
