Building Transition Updates
In 2013, the congregation entered into discussion about the possible sale of the Ranchlands facility through an intentional congregational renewal process. In 2016, the Ranchlands building was sold to the Muslim Association of Canada, and the Calgary congregation relocated to Lion's Village at 2528 Bowness Rd. NW as a temporary location.
A Facility Planning Team has been established to help facilitate this transition, and the congregation has entered into an acquisition process as it seeks to relocate to a new space.
This purpose of this page is twofold:
The Facility Planning Team has now received approval from both the Congregation at our Business Meeting on March 18, 2018 and from World Church on April 10, 2018 under the current World Church Capital Pause Policy based on our Mission Imperative, to proceed with our Feasibility Study as presented and committing up to $50,000 from our Congregation’s Restricted Reserve holding proceeds from sale of the Ranchlands Church. (Minutes from the March 18, 2018 Calgary Congregation Business meeting can be viewed here.)
This Feasibility Study is a standard step in due diligence to ensure any project proposal answers all the necessary stewardship model questions and specifically will review the risks of financial or project activities for the project and for the operations of a church home post-construction. (Further details on the Feasibility Study process can be found here.)
Thanks to your engagement, the Facility Planning Team has been able to develop and distribute a helpful FAQ document in response to your questions. You are encouraged to continue sending questions, concerns, and/or comments. Responses to questions will be published in future FAQ documents.
The Facility Planning Team seeks open and transparent conversation with all stakeholders. As such, a Contact Form has been created on the Building Transition page that connects you directly to the Owners’ Representatives (Parker Johnson and Sam Smalldon). If you have any questions or concerns, please fill out the Contact Form and a team member will respond directly to you as soon as possible.
Thank you for your continued support, and please don’t hesitate to connect with us via the Building Transition page.
