Exciting days are ahead! The Excelsior City Council has approved our parking lot expansion and beautification project! Additional parking spaces and easier traffic flow will be welcome improvements happening this summer. 

In late July, we are starting the refreshment of our education wing, the securing of our preschool, and the relocation of restrooms off the atrium. The refreshment will be a blessing to the Preschool, Sunday school, Confirmation and adult gatherings.

The current women’s restroom will be transformed into a men’s and women’s facility with doors towards the atrium. This reorientation allows for people to locate the restrooms easier. It allows for the Preschool wing to be more secure by removing public access from their hallway. The remodel will feature a new design complimenting the sanctuary remodel of 2013. Each space will be equipped with new fixtures and beautiful tile donated by The Tile Shop.

The current men’s restroom will be transformed into a new women’s restroom complete with a nursing area. The old women’s restroom was larger and had a lounge. After 20 years of good use, the ladies gave up the space to let the men be closer to the atrium. In return, they are getting a beautifully designed space for women and small children. This restroom will also feature beautiful tile donated by The Tile Shop.

Already Mission Forward has enhanced our communication and technology with a brand new website, WI-FI throughout the building, and a new server. 

Our $60,000 Haitian investment is supplying clean water to over 5,000 people. 

Public Safety Ministries has received $10,000 for Pastor Dan Carlson’s work delivering spiritual care to local police and public safety professionals.

Thank you for all the amazing and wonderful gifts and support Mission Forward has received.  It’s going to be great fun to see the improvements and it will be even more welcoming to all the people we personally invite to join us here for worship and other activities!
