Because we live in a rapidly changing culture that is increasingly fragmented and cynical, we have a unique opportunity to fully embrace God’s urgent mission of love. Whether we are caring for needs in our community or creating opportunities for new people to experience God’s grace, we want everyone around us to know we are here for good.
Here For Good is a $20 million project that will allow us as a church to reach deep into our community to love and serve like never before. The three components of the Here For Good Project will help us reach the 800,000, create compelling experiences in all our campuses, and bring hope to the vulnerable in our community.
As we go where we have not yet gone and do what we have not yet done, we will reach people we have not yet been able to reach. We will take some big steps to engage our community right where they are.
To extend our reach, we will launch two new campuses in The Colony and the Prosper/Frisco/McKinney area, engage in digital missions using new platforms and tools, and launch Local Good (i.e., a café venue where people who have different beliefs can connect around things we all care about).
We are excited to see who God will help us reach through Here For Good.
Since personal invitation is a powerful way to impact someone’s life, we want to create the most compelling experiences possible for those we invite. And since we know each campus is a light in their community, we are going to take steps to create the best “come as you are” environments for those who walk through our doors.
For this part of the project, we will:
Each campus’ improvements and upgrades will help us better serve our friends and neighbors.
At Chase Oaks, we want to come alongside those who are most vulnerable and restore hope where it is easily lost. We want to meet our community’s deepest needs. We want to be a light in the dark spots. We want to be here for good.
As we seek to meet some of the most pressing needs in our community, it’s clear that one of the brightest spots within our church is the Chase Oaks Family Center located in East Plano. Every season, the services provided by the Family Center are full to capacity. Seasonal initiatives, like ToyZone and SchoolZone, and classes for US Citizenship and ESL serve hundreds of families and individuals each year.
While so many vulnerable families are finding the help they need, so many others are turned away because there is simply no more room. Tripling the size of the Chase Oaks Family Center will dramatically increase our ability to come alongside families in need.
As we come together to reach, serve, and love our community, think about how God is calling you to participate in the Here For Good Project. Stay tuned to our website for project updates and ways you can do good in your neighborhood.
