LOPAC Update

CanYouSeeIt_LOPAC (small).jpg

As the summer is here many of us will slow down with kids out of school, vacations, and family and friends coming into town for a visit. I hope you ALL enjoy the rhythm of the summer! As you are in and out, please remember to keep praying for the ministry and impact of our church, especially as it relates to the Live Oak Performing Arts Center (LOPAC). Here’s where we are today:

  • Main Street Youth Theater has agreed in principle to join us in this mission! We couldn’t be more excited to see what God is going to do through this friendship.

  • We have a set of conceptual drawings in hand from Cort/Atkins, and we love them! These drawings become the template for what we are trying to build in the near future.

  • We have met with the town of Bluffton to share out plans as well as to combine three of our four lots into one lot. This was a required step to move forward. The town is “on board” for our plans!

  • We are currently meeting with a number of banks and lending institutions as well as fundraising organizations to help us assess our next financial steps.

  • We are praying for our third partnership to materialize.

Church, these are VERY exciting times, and there are a myriad of loose ends and potential pitfalls, which is why your prayers are SO very important. This summer, please remember to pray for Live Oak and the LOPAC every Monday at 1:30, and commit to a day of fasting (from something) on the 21st of every month.

We’ll continue to keep you posted, and we look forward to what comes next!

Pastor Michael

P.S. Maybe this will help you see it a little better!
