“NEXT” is our expanded and unified vision over the next year to minister to the NEXT person through the door by creating a chapel that will provide more worship, prayer and event space as well as covered drop-off areas.
What is the Need?
Our focus has been, and will continue to be, ministering to the NEXT person through the door. We believe that by creating a chapel we can meet several ministry needs that are currently hard to meet with our facility as it is today.
Why do we need a chapel? Because Collin County is expected to continue with unprecedented economic and population growth over the next decade, we are sovereignly positioned in the heart of Collin County to have an enormous, eternal impact for the Kingdom of God! The rapid growth of our community has brought to light several areas in which we can better minister to the NEXT person through the door and those who are already here.
Ministry opportunities will expand exponentially with a chapel. Not only will it provide a place for weddings, funerals, prayer and worship services, but this space will be heavily used by our Student, Children and Kid Care ministries.
Building a chapel will open up a myriad of ministry opportunities including:
- Sunday Night Services
- Midweek Services
- Prayer Meetings
- Smaller Services
- Education Space
- and MORE!
Meeting the NEXT person where they are at and ministering to their needs.
Reaching the NEXT generation is heavy on our hearts. A chapel allows young couples to enter into a marriage commitment in a holy place. The size of our Worship Center isn’t suitable for most weddings.
One need that has been a challenge for us to meet is providing a place for grieving families to celebrate the lives of those who have passed. By having this space, we not only are providing them a place to say goodbye, but we will be able to minister into their lives during this hardship.
Smaller Worship Space:
We need a space for smaller worship services and gatherings such as Sunday Night Service, Midweek Worship and Kid Care Chapel. With the addition of Midweek Worship, we have realized that our ever-busy Atrium is not providing a place of intentional worship, free from distractions.
Renderings and Documents
Our goals for NEXT include: 100% participation from the Cottonwood Creek family in giving and raising the full $2.5 million in one-time gifts and commitments.
$2.5 Million Dollars
By asking our church family to make commitments over and above their current giving for one year.
Three Areas of NEXT Generosity
One time gift - Stored Assets
These are assets that you have accumulated over time. Examples: Bank accounts, brokerage accounts, liquid assets, appreciated assets, real estate, precious metals
Giving comes from income above and beyond regular tithes and offerings. This is a gift that goes beyond a "comfortable" gift. This requires a lifestyle change of some kind to make it a reality.
God has put this amount on your heart to commit, trusting Him to provide it within the commitment period. This is a gift that you can achieve only with God's help. You must trust God completely for this gift to be realized.
What are you asking me to do?
We are asking you to pray and seek God for how He wants you to respond. Prepare your heart to hear Him, and then listen to what He says. Talk with your spouse and your family about what this commitment will mean for this next season. Respond to the generosity of the Gospel by giving extravagantly for the progress of the Gospel in our church, among our community and around the world.
