In 2013, the Armstrong Group recommended multiple initiatives for our congregation to fulfill our mission to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. To move forward with excellence we need to:
- Maximize our Facilities for Ministry
- Develop Multi-Site Ministries
- Equip Leaders for ministries in fulfilling our mission
- Connect people to care, grow and serve
In 2015, Hyde Park Community United Methodist Church contracted with MSA Architects to develop a Master Plan, a long-range (15-20 year) projection of our needs for our facility. The congregation expressed its priorities for security for children, flexible space, and additional space for ministries to children and families. In 2016, after approving this report, the Servant Leadership Board commissioned a Building Committee to phase the plan, considering the order of priorities carefully. In March 2018, the Servant Leadership Board received the report of the Building Committee and their recommendation to proceed with Phase 1 of the Master Plan.
Communicating this exciting vision will take place soon at Town Hall Meetings. Members of our congregation and church family are invited to come to see and hear about this proposal. The purpose of the Town Hall meetings is to educate our congregation prior to voting at a Church Conference in late August or early September. Members will be voting on authorizing the church to hold a Capital Campaign, embracing the vision of Phase 1 of the Master Plan.
