With increasing numbers in our congregation and ministry, building a gymnasium on our premise will be a priority strategy. This will encourage the Markham community to benefit from the church and the programs it offers. The cost of this extension is $1.25M and construction of the gymnasium will begin in Spring 2017. In order to get to where we want, we need to raise a total of $660,000 by February 2017 as an initial investment to promote this second phase of our church project.
We Need Your Support
In the past years we have committed to providing various quality children summer camp programs to over a hundred families within the community. Unfortunately, we had to turn down a few campers this year due to our limited space to host our summer camp activities. With the drastic increase in the population in our community, we are devoted to promote a wide range of social services including a place for:
1- The youth to hang out and play any sport of their choice
2- Seniors to socialize and participate in wellness programs
3- to serve as a community centre where educational, cultural and recreational activities are used to promote a healthy living and diversity.
Ultimately, our goals to introduce the gymnasium will help us reach out to the community by expressing the love of Jesus through socialization and holistic community outreach. These facilities available at the gymnasium will be FREE to the community and the Church body.
As mentioned, most of the programs are FREE and the church flourishes from donations and sponsorships from people in the community. Without your donations, our church will not grow and we cannot achieve these goals to help the community.
Our building is indeed a blessing from God. It has been our goal to use this building as an instrument to pass on God’s blessing to others in the community. We have continued to encourage God’s work by renting out our church for FREE so that many more people can benefit from it. Our community programs involve:
A.A Group, Toast Master, Tamil and Mandarin Churches, Children Summer Camp, Community education and training for Markham Stouffville Hospital and the City or Markham, Parenting and Marriage Courses,Workshops and Support Groups for families with children with special needs, Senior, Children and Youth Programs
