For 6 years Renew has rented space in a commercial building strategically located in the heart of downtown Carroll, IA. Now we’re seeking to make it our permanent home.
The building is not only highly visible and accessible but has shaped the values and identity of the church: We want to be a place of hope and welcome to all in Jesus’ name. This is a building campaign. But the building really isn’t the point. This is about having great space for serving God and people He loves so very much.
We’d like you to consider making an investment in this mission.
To buy the building and renovate spaces for worship, hospitality, and children’s ministry to accommodate a growing congregation. (See the vision brochure and concept drawings below.)
To intentionally support organizations that serve individuals and families in our community by renting 40% of the structure. (Currently in place are groups that invest in children and persons with special needs).
To put roots down for the future, establishing a long-term home for seeing lives transformed by Jesus in authentic community.
First, to raise $110k by October 2019. This will enable us to secure financing and increase our available space for ministry by 3,500 sq/ft (large basement + kitchen facilities). This begins a 3-year capital campaign with a goal of raising $450k to own the building outright.

Thank you so much.
Please remember us in prayer and email with any and all questions.
