OCC is purchasing permanent, visible property.
God is Providing Growth: we want to serve the people He is sending and steward resources wisely.
Permanent & Visible: communicate to our neighbors that we’re here to stay.
Kid Space: we want to build an excellent, custom environment to enhance our great KidZone programming impacting the next generation.
Bold Faith: this is the next big faith step, just like we’ve done before, and will continue to do.
OCC IS ADVANCING.
One of the initiatives in our 10-year vision, called “ADVANCE,” is:
To secure and build on a visible location to establish permanence and enable us to advance for future growth.
THE OPPORTUNTY BEFORE US:
OCC is in escrow on a 5.3-acre property located at 5695 Glenhaven Ave. Riverside, 92506. We have offered $2.15 million for the purchase. The decision to enter escrow is keeping with one of our 10-year “ADVANCE” initiatives.
Since the end of July, 2019, we’ve been vetting the property and doing “due diligence” to determine if this property will accommodate our needs as a church.
OCC’s Property Purchase Team has accomplished much during our "due diligence” period: entered escrow, thoroughly researched the site, hired experts to help us answer the big questions, began working and meeting with Riverside City planning departments, and engaged the Community surrounding the site regarding our plans to develop it.
Lord willing, over time and as God provides, we will build something that looks like this over at least 4 phases of construction:
IT HAS BEEN EXCITING TO GET THIS FAR IN THE PROCESS… WE TRULY BELIEVE GOD HAS GUIDED US TO THIS POINT.
IN ORDER TO CLOSE THE SALE…
We need to raise an additional $400,000 for the down payment between now and December 15th, 2019 to buy up this opportunity and close the sale.
This is a lot of money, but it is not a question as to whether God is able to provide… we know He can! But God puts His resources in the hands of His people, and we have a role to play in the stories that He writes. So, we are trusting Him to move in the hearts of the OCC family and prompt each person to respond.
WHAT CAN YOU DO?
PRAY– Pray that God moves the hearts of the OCC family to give sacrificially to the down payment effort. Also, ask God what your personal response should be.
GIVE– As God directs you, bring a gift by December 15th, 2019 to help us meet the down payment need. You do not need to wait until December 15thto give.
STAY ENGAGED– Perhaps God is writing a pretty epic story at OCC! He invites us to play a role in the story, we get to see what He does!
