First Baptist Church of Silver Spring

New Building Updates

The Church Council, Trustees, and representatives of all three congregations are in urgent consultation with the developer. On Saturday, July 12, the Church Council held an informational meeting with the FBCSS congregation. At that meeting everyone learned that it will be necessary to divide the building program into two phases in order to bridge gaps in finanacing. The current plan for phase 1 is to build all of the building except the large Sanctuary and the steeple tower. The chapel and the fellowship hall would be built in phase 1. FBCSS would incur a manageable mortgage. At the business meeting on July 20 we hope a final proposal will be ready for a vote. Although there were some concerns, in general the congregation seemed inclined to support the plan.
