We are excited to announce our plans to build a new church house on our fully owned five acres!
Since beginning as a congregation seven years ago, we have established our identity in a rented facility and begun ministering to our community. Locating property just three miles from where we rent in the Hills of Ocala Community Center, allows us visibility on Highway 484 just west of the Dunnellon Airport and only three miles from the Dunnellon Elementary and High School! We are still near the neighborhood where families live and have frontage on the highway just 4 miles east of Dunnellon.
Our leadership team, having reviewed the building options and costs here in southwest Marion County, determined to secure a modular unit that will first give us a worship facility and eventually be useful for classroom development. We have completed all the surveys and requirements to develop our property. We have a county-approved site plan for both now and the future. Following our in-house “30 Pieces of Silver Offering” on April 1, we anticipate setting a date for ground-breaking.
Have you ever helped a church become established in the community? We are offering that opportunity to you to assist in this important work. Our congregation of twenty-four households have completed the purchase of the property and its development with offerings that total just over $90,000. We have anticipated costs for site preparation to be just over $50,000 and a modular unit at a cost of $121, 192. We would hope to order our unit this summer and be into our new facility for Christmas! We know we can’t do it alone, but with God’s help, your generous gift, and our faithfulness to enter this project without indebtedness, we believe we can achieve this purpose for the Kingdom.
I worship here. The Bible is preached here. The fellowship is warm and inviting. We have people from young children to older adults. We are a reflection of our community and of the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is important to me to support this work and ask you to support it also. Will you help us attain this goal so that we can accomplish more for the Kingdom in the time He gives us? We will acknowledge your gift and thank you for your assistance. We are a 501(c)3 tax exempt organization and organized fully in compliance with the State of Florida. Visit our website for the latest information: SonRise Christian Church Website
