FAITH ROOTS FUND
FAITH ROOTS FUND
The "FAITH ROOTS FUND" is a building fund designated for a three-phase project that will align with our mission and accomplish four goals with the finished project utilized by all ages of the Red Bank congregation.
INVESTING to Establish Faith Roots for the Youth of Today and Tomorrow
INVESTING for an Enhanced Learning Environment
INVESTING for Improved Safety
INVESTING for an Increase in Fellowship Opportunities
The total cost of the three-phase project is $393,264. Of this, $131,216 is currently accounted for due to saved funds designated for repairs/upgrades over the last few years by the elders. The goal is to raise the remaining $225,000 to complete Phases 2 and 3.
CURRENT FUNDING STATUS
The following tree represents current funding as of August 20, 2023.
Rooted in Faith. Growing in Love.
Designed to immerse children within the life cycle of an oak tree, it is essential for children to understand their roots in Christ Jesus and build their lives in him. Therefore, the designated children's wing will feature a Biblical timeline while also designating each room in a life cycle stage of an oak tree. The following verses are the framework for Phase 1B—
Colossians 2:7, Luke 18:16, Proverbs 22:16, Psalm 52:8, Psalm 139:14, 1 Corinthians 10:31, Jeremiah 17:7-8
Main Children's Wing Entrance
Puppet Window and Front Stage for "Faith Roots", formerly known as Children's Training Time
Birdseye view of "Faith Roots" Room
Draft of Cradle Roll Class known as "Acorns"
Birdseye View of 4th & 5th Grade Class known as "Mighty Oaks"
Phase 1B will feature a new "Faith Roots" room, formerly known as "Children's Training Time", that includes a stage equipped with a puppet window built into one of the two trees, two large screen TVs, audience seating, learning section, along with additional activity centers. The following classrooms are included:
Cradle Roll known as "Acorns" for ages 0 to 12 months; One-year-olds known as "Sprouts"; Two-year-olds known as "Seedlings"; Three and Four-year-olds known as "Saplings"; Kindergarten and Five-year-olds known as "Buds & Blooms"; First and Second Graders known as "Tall Timbers"; Third thru Fifth Graders known as "Mighty Oaks". Rooms will be equipped with up-to-date technology to enhance learning and feature an age-appropriate version of Colossians 2:7. Additionally, both bathrooms will receive updates along with all walls and flooring. Parents can expect a cozy waiting area at the children's wing entrance.
Do it all for the Glory of God
The scope of this project includes aspects such as flooring, ceiling, lights and fixtures, walls, and many design elements. It is our goal to provide a progress report through pictures (found below) as well as monthly updates via a short presentation by an elder on a designated Sunday following morning Worship.
We have been blessed with great success so far and give glory to God.

FORMERLY CALLED "CHILDREN'S TRAINING TIME"
Calling. Connection. Celebration.
Designed to immerse all individuals in the mission of believers in Christ and share the values of Red Bank Church of Christ, the first level of the building will provide visual designs to keep us focused on the Word and our walk in Christ. Relocation of certain rooms will occur making way for a new adult classroom, connection/coffee room, prayer room, and a children's check-in room. A new designated parent's wing will house a nursery, lactation room, and toddler nursery—all with safety in mind. All verses found within Red Bank's values of "Calling", "Connection", and "Celebration" were the framework for Phase 2 — learn more about Red Bank's values.
Reaching In. Reaching Out. Reaching Over.
When you allow Scripture to be the inspiration, anything is possible. The following verses were the framework for the designated youth wing within Phase 1A—
Matthew 22:37, Proverbs 22:6, Matthew 28:19-20, 1 Timothy 4:12, 1 Thessalonians 5:11, 2 Corinthians 6:17
Main Youth Classroom
Phase 1 will feature a main youth classroom, one large breakout room (future classroom), a small breakout room, and a game/fellowship room. The main classroom will have a fellowshipping section also to be used for closer-knit conversations along with a traditional classroom setup. Each breakout room will be equipped with the latest technology and allow for both growth and conversations based on age and gender depending on the learning objective. The game/fellowship room will allow youth members to have all elements encapsulated in the building within their unique and biblically inspired wing. Additionally, there will be a renovated college classroom, and a new adult classroom, plus improvements to staircases, bathrooms, ceilings, and flooring. The completion of Phase 1 is set for April 2023.
Update: Phase 1 was officially completed and opened March 22, 2023.
