West Campus Addition to Begin!

We are delighted that construction of the 48,000-square-foot building addition at the West Campus is scheduled to begin in early May. This much-needed building will provide Sunday school classrooms, choir rehearsal spaces, a youth center, a commercial kitchen, additional sanctuary seating, and offices for pastors and staff. The addition will cost $12.7 million, plus $500,000 for furnishings. Completion is projected by late summer of 2019.

Installation of site fencing and a secure entrance will be done first, followed by moving the electrical transformer currently located in an area needed for the new building. Excavation work begins next, followed by forms for footings for the perimeter walls and the elevator pits. Landscaping, related to last fall’s excavation project and the addition of the second lift of blacktop to the new parking lot, also will be completed. The biggest deterrent to staying on schedule is weather. We need sunny days and light rain only at night!

Our development team continues to thoughtfully and intentionally raise the additional funds of $2.5 million needed to close the gap for the construction. We are grateful to the donors who have contributed $10.7 million to date. Thank you so very much. 

Gifts of all sizes are still needed and appreciated. With everyone’s support, this addition will be a reality. We hope that you will prayerfully consider the powerful effect Mount Olivet has in your personal life and in the life of your family, and then imagine the impact your church can have in the western suburbs as we enthusiastically share Christ’s grace and love in action.
