Capital Campaigns

In 2007, we took a step of faith and began the Imagine Campaign to improve and add to the facilities of Lavonia First Baptist Church. Through this endeavor, we were able to:

  • Renovate our 1917 Sanctuary, making it a modern facility with good accessibility.
  • Build a "Gathering Space" to connect the new Kids' Town building and house an elevator.
  • Build a two-story Kids' Town building to house the Preschool and Children's Ministries.
  • Create additional parking.
  • Re-orient the Old Educational Building for adults, giving older adults closer proximity to the Sanctuary.
  • Open the top floor of the Family Life Center for Adult Educational Space.
  • In 2010, we transitioned to the Awakening Campaign, having already raised $1.8 million towards a $3.6 million project, we pledged to continue paying for the capital improvements made under the Imagine Campaign. To date we've given about $2.4 million leaving us with a debt balance of about $1.2 million.

    In 2013, we launched a third and final campaign to raise about one million dollars in order to dissolve our project debt - The Next Steps Campaign.

    Anyone may contribute by designating their offering for the "Building Fund." Just mark your offering envelope with the amount you want to go into the Building Fund.

    These Campaigns are simply tools to help draw attention to our Building Fund. It is exciting to see how the people of God, with God's help, give generously to make His presence known in our community.
