Bethany Camp is excited to announce that we are moving forward with building the next structure of our Moving Forward campaign: the Strawberry Fieldhouse!
As many of you know, we have begun the next step in our master plan by preparing the site to build a much-needed recreation building. While we know that buildings do not have spiritual value, we believe that this new building will open many doors to ministry that will impact many lives spiritually. The new “Strawberry Fieldhouse” will include a large gym area, new meeting room, larger Bistro, large lounge area, and storage areas for equipment and supplies.
We are asking if your church and individuals would prayerfully consider assisting us in seeing this new ministry tool come to life. We believe that the entire project will cost around $600,000 to be completed and fully furnished. We have divided the projects into three stages. The first stage would be to construct the gym area and side buildings necessary to see the building through this coming winter. Stage two would be to complete all the surrounding structures. Stage three would be to complete all the finish work, furnishings, and equipment. Stage one estimated cost to complete is $290,000, Stage two estimated cost to complete is $175,000 and Stage three estimated cost to complete is $135,000. We currently have $240,000 in hand.
Our plan for timing is to seek to pour the foundation and floor of the gym area before summer camp and begin construction in September in order to get as much enclosed as possible before winter.
