March 2021 Building Update

Hello Family and Friends,

We hope you and your loved ones are doing well. We just wanted to take a moment to update you on the building. We finally after several months received our permit and now will be moving ahead with renovations, We appreciate your prayers and we are so grateful for your giving.

We have two graduations coming up in June! We are excited and grateful for Adam and Tommy’s commitment to finish the eighteen-month program. Please pray for new disciples to join The 180 Center program. With the weather getting warmer and the city ending its provision of hotel rooms for the homeless, we are seeing more people stop in during the week. On Sunday we had a full house at The 180 Center storefront with social distancing and masks, plus we also have people attending on Zoom. We all look forward to resuming outdoor meetings in the new building parking lot. We pray Co-vid numbers drop and those with great spiritual needs visit the center. Will you agree with us for a spiritual revival and harvest of souls?

With the time it took to obtain the permit, we were able to fully pay the cost for the architect. We are now in the process of planning the renovation process. Below is the list we need to tackle so we can move into the new building. Sometimes the list looks big, but we know God is so much BIGGER and will give us the grace to move forward.

Needs for Phase One completion:

  • A drainage box that needs to go in the parking lot to satisfy a new city ordinance (may be costly)
  • Plumbing fixtures and new water lines installed
  • Need new Thermal pane entrances and replace windows(as per code)
  • Make the existing bathroom handicap accessible & add one more bathroom
  • Add outside ramp to make handicap accessible
  • Add a kitchen & two offices
  • More insulation for ceilings ( as per energy-saving code)Studding and insulating walls (as per energy-saving code

Here are four ways you can help us:

  1. SHARE about The 180 Center on social media! We are on Facebook & Twitter. Share our vision!
  2. PRAY that ALL these needs get met so we can serve our city in a more effective way. Your prayers are powerful!
  3. GIVE financially a tax-deductible donation. 100% of your giving will go directly to the needs listed above.
  4. SERVE as a skilled laborer with the renovations. Contact us through email.

Will you stand with us as we believe God hears our cries and will faithfully provide ALL that is needed? We need your prayers and appreciate your generosity! No amount is too small. Thank you!
