Now To Him Who Is Able - Skyway Update - May 2024

May 8, 2024    Matt Dean, Lee Cadden

If you are new to Grace Auburn, on January 25 of 2024, we closed on our Skyway Drive property that will be our future home. We secured the building for $9.5M with a combination of our giving and financing with a Christian private equity group that partners with our church planting network.

The process - from fundraising, rezoning requests, purchase, and now design for a renovation - has been one that we have kept before the church when relevant. Per our request, our architect has provided a master plan for a full conversion of the building – We asked the architect to design this building with all the potential for ministry we could imagine...from the parking lot and green spaces that would provide welcoming experiences, a lobby that could host fellowship gatherings and lingering between services, a simple and beautiful space for worship, offices for our staff, and enough space for kids, students, and our campus ministries to thrive. 

In this week's podcast, Lee and Matt reflect on Matt's sermon from Sunday when we shared with the congregation where we are in the process and what its going to require to move into Skyway Drive.
