Q: Why renovate the Sanctuary?
A: We do not want our Sanctuary in a state of disrepair, we want to honor the Lord with excellence through our house of worship. We have outdated lighting, sound and other equipment that needs to be replaced.

Q: What will be changing?
A: We will upgrade the lighting system, audio/visual systems, seating, flooring, wall coverings, and some modification to the stage.

Q: How much will the Renovation Cost?
Current estimate is $4 m+.

Q: Who will be doing the work?
Multiple companies were interviewed, but Paragon 360 was selected. Visit PARAGON 360


Q: How long will the renovation take to complete?
The contractor estimates it will take 5-6 months to complete. You should see activity in August, and we hope to be completed in December.

Q: Will we be displaced from the sanctuary during the construction?
There will be some amount of displacement. When we know these details for certain, we will communicate a plan.

Q: If we are displaced from the sanctuary, will we still meet on Sunday for Worship?
Yes, worship will likely be moved to the Fellowship Hall, or possibly outside on occasion.

Q: How can I give to the renovation?
We ask that you make a commitment and fill out a commitment card, so we know how much is committed. You can give above the tithe: online, by check, cash, or text. Mark your gift to “Renovation.”

Q: Will we need to borrow money?
Yes, church voted by large majority to borrow the necessary funds to complete the renovation.

Q: How will we pay the debt?
The debt payments will be made with your gifts to “Renovation,” this will be outside our operating budget.

Q: How long will it take to pay off the debt?
If our people give sacrificially, we believe we can pay off the debt 5-6 years.

Q: Will other church activities be impacted by the renovation?
It is possible, but we believe most activities taking place outside the sanctuary should have little to no disruption.

Q: Who will be making decisions on the details of the renovation?
Church staff leadership will be making these decisions, while corresponding with the properties and stewardship committees.

Q: What if I disagree with the project or a portion of the project?
We recognize in the life of the church that we will have varying opinions or see things differently, and this is healthy. However, we hope that as a member who “belongs” to EFBC you will support church leadership as they make difficult decisions and lead us to serve the Lord with excellence now and in the future.
