On July 31st, 2016 the votes/pledges were counted and the results were a 98% yes vote, over $1.6 million  pledged in cash and approximately $300,000 pledged in goods & services!

To address our current challenges and position ourselves for future growth, we will be adding approximately 25,000 sq. ft. that will house a new Children’s Ministry Center with larger elementary and preschool auditoriums, classrooms, nursery, mothers room, larger check-in and pick-up area and all much more conveniently located. It will also include a new kitchen and pantry, enlarged lobby and additional restrooms.

We will add a storage building, make minor modifications to current children’s wing, complete needed roofing repairs, repaint exterior and make a number of needed improvements or repairs on the existing facility.

We have set a budget not to exceed $3.0 million for this project. Deer Flat has been debt free for 14 years and our goal and desire would be to be debt free by 2020.

The building is now complete! We have moved all children in to the new wing, we are using the kitchen and we have started several new classes in the old wing. Julie and her team have been busy putting the final touches on the spaces to make them fun and effective for each age group. We still have to install the playground areas, sprinklers, sod, minor remodeling in the old areas, insulating the old attic spaces and some fresh paint. We will be working on these projects through the balance of the year. Make sure you check out the photos and videos.

Thanks to the very generous donations of goods/services by our Deer Flat members who contracted portions of this project, discounts by others, volunteers, great employees and lots of prayer, we will complete the project for about $2.7 million net cost. This includes the new storage building, updates to the existing shop, most of the work on the old building, all furnishings and decor and all equipment. We have received nearly $1.3 million to date and our goal is to try to have it paid off by 2020!
