Dear Immanuel Church,
As you may know, we have been on the lookout for property for some time. If you have attended our Family Meetings, you have seen a review of the steps taken and the properties considered. Our Land Team has done a wonderful job of finding and evaluating potential properties. At the same time, the Elders have been listening to your feedback, trying our best to chart a helpful course for Immanuel, and thinking through and praying about timing and next steps.
In the last few weeks, these two teams and those conversations have all converged on one piece of property: 0 Valley Vista Road. We believe that the property’s location, visibility, and price make it a great fit for Immanuel Church – to further our ministry to future generations and reach the growing community around us. For these reasons, the Elders and the Land Team share great unity and even a sense of urgency to begin pursuing Valley Vista.
What are our next steps? The first step is to update the church on the details regarding this property and our evaluation process, to answer any questions you may have, and to let you know how you can be considering and praying about this opportunity. After all, as a congregational church, no decision of this significance can be made without the affirmation of the church. With that in mind, we invite you to join us for a Land Info Meeting this Sunday (12.13) at 4:00pm via Zoom (link). For those who cannot join us, we will make information from the meeting available at iknox.org/land.
Of course, the first and most important step of this process is prayer. Please join us in praying that God would lead us in this journey, that His will would be accomplished, and His Name be glorified!
Grace and peace to you,
The Elder Team
