As God has richly blessed Encounter with growth, we began to recognize the need for a larger and more up-to-date space for our people. In late 2013, we began to pray and seek God's will and timing for us to expand our facilities. It was then decided to begin plans on expanding and renovating both our building and our parking lot.  What originally was envisioned as a two-phase project, God eventually led us to the decision to do both phases at once. 

Through the faithful and generous pledges given by our people as well as some outside donations, we believe the timing is right to begin our construction project this Spring. By its end, we should have a more up-to-date facility with adequate space to continue growing and building God's Kingdom here in Belding.

This project simply cannot happen without significant financial support. Without your generous giving to our building fund, this project won't be anything more than just a dream. We've raised a good-sized portion of what we need to begin construction, but the additional costs will continue long after we break ground. 

Please consider supporting this endeavor however you are able to. By following the link below, you can designate your gift, either recurring or one-time gift, to our building fund. Every little bit helps, and we truly are so appreciative.

Here is a blueprint as well as some 3D renderings of how we'll be expanding and renovating our facility. In addition to this, we will also be expanding and resurfacing our parking lot.

We'll be updating this page more as our building expansion gets under way. Please continue to be in prayer for Encounter as we take this huge step of faith.
