130 littleton Road...
...IS THE FUTURE HOME OF GRACE COMMUNITY CHURCH, for 7 years now we have believed that God is calling us to find a permanent home, a place where we can share the love of Jesus with the community around us. A building location team (BLT) was assembled to evaluate our options. After years of researching various locations, and a few attempts at pursuing other locations, we found 130 Littleton Road in Westford, MA. Only 5 miles away from our current leased building, and right off the highway in a commercial district, we are thrilled to have closed a deal to move to our new land... 18 acres of beautiful property on route 110.
FORWARD IN FAITH, in spring of 2013 we launched our Forward in Faith campaign to raise the funds to purchase the land at 130 Littleton Road, we will officially close on the land in December of 2015 and for the first time in our church's history we will own our own property. We are excited to be so close to seeing this dream become a reality. At this point in the campaign (beginning year 3 of the 3-year campaign) we would invite you to join us in some key ways:
1. PRAY: Romans 12:12 says "Rejoice in hope, be patient in hard times, be constant in prayer." We want to pray for the people who visit and attend Grace. That they will discover and grow in the hope found in Jesus. For the obstacles we face along the way would either be removed or make us stronger as a community. And that we would grow to become a community of prayer, inviting Him into all we do.
2. GIVE: We are excited about walking forward, in faith, to the calling that God has laid out for us. Our campaign raised $1.1 million in commitments, and our land costs $2 million, factoring in money that was already raised we still have a need to raise approx. $500K to pay off the land completely. Many have been giving sacrificially over the course of this campaign, and we would encourage anyone who calls Grace Community their church home to join us in supporting this endeavor. You can contact our Executive Pastor Matt Beattie to find out more, or visit our giving page here.
3. SERVE: As we move closer and closer to owning the property at 130 Littleton Road, we will be engaging in all different kinds of work projects to move things forward. Keep your eyes peeled for opportunities to serve alongside other members of the Grace Community family, as we continue to walk forward in faith towards the goal of a new campus where Jesus love is shown, and we can dig our roots down into this region even more. From physical labor on the land, to serving on various teams that will enable us to move forward, there will be a great fit for you!
