Building The Next Generation

The next generation is not just the future of the church, but is the church now. Reaching kids, students, and young families is the primary mission of Summit Park Church. Our intentionality to build the next generation today will multiply kingdom impact for years to come.  
The Forward Campaign is building the next generation. Over the next two years, we will build the new permanent home of Summit Park Church. This new location will be a hub for reaching young people and families in both Lee’s Summit and the surrounding communities.  
It will not be just a building;  it will be an investment in future generations. 

Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.

 Isaiah 43:18-19

The new site of Summit Park Church will be comprised of multiple venues at one campus all with the aim of serving the community and achieving our mission of helping more people find and follow Jesus.  
The Master Plan will include: renovating the existing facility, a new 1200-seat auditorium, state-of-the-art kids environments, a new atrium, expanded parking, and a dedicated ministry center.

God is doing amazing things! 



Where will staff offices be until phase 2 of the ministry center?

Staff offices will be upstairs in the ministry center

Are we still on target for church services to begin in December 2021 at the new campus?

Our construction team is moving as fast as possible! We want to make sure we do it right though! Our move in date is looking to be more like March of 2022.

What are some of the options the ministry center will provide?

The Ministry Center will have counseling offices for anyone who needs it. This could include marriage counseling, new believers, counseling for children etc.

There were a number of plans discussed for the middle school aged kids at the new campus. Are there any plans or programs on the horizon for high school aged students?

We want our Students to be involved in the weekend services! Our students programming will continue to be on Wednesday evenings.

The sanctuary does not look big enough to hold both locations.  Is there plans to expand that area as well?  I didn't hear anything about that.

The Auditorium in phase 1 will hold roughly 700 adults per service. That will hold both campuses with some room to grow! In phase 2 we will add an additional auditorium that will seat 1200 adults!

I was curious about a baptistery. Are we building one and if not in the sanctuary, will there be a dedicated space for those services?   

We have our baptisms in the auditorium 2 times a year and make it an event for the whole church!! We use portable tanks and bring in hot water to make it comfortable.

What phase is the coffee shop planned for?

We would like to have the coffee shop open during phase 1! Timing isn’t solidified yet.

Coffee shop and community services areas, staffed by volunteers or staff from SPC or outside resources from the community?

Our coffee shop will probably be operated by local coffee shop looking to expand.

Will we have an altar where we can go up and pray like LSF had?  Would love to see that!??

People are always welcome to pray at the front of the auditorium during the worship portion of our services!

Could the parking be done in the water pervious material like the city is using at Arnold Hall (3rd St Social) and the lot at 4th and Main to address some of the water drainage issues?

We are working with Civil engineers to find the most effective way to speak to our parking expansion with water drainage in mind!

Are there opportunities to help with the construction etc. projects? Painting carpet etc.? I missed the one demolition work day.

We will have opportunities to help see our new home become a reality! Some of that may be landscaping, work on the ministry center, and most definitely moving in.
