COncrete truth

Concrete Truth is an initiative to expand the mission of The Garden Church to make disciples in Baltimore City and beyond.  The focal point of the initiative is the renovation of a 10,000 square foot space in the middle of our neighborhood. This facility will enable us to be more effective in pursuing our mission. Our goal is to raise $500,000 to offset the total cost (Total cost for purchase and renovations of this facility is estimated around $1,000,000).

The facility, previously owned by Immaculate Conception Church, has been purchased by The Garden Church. We have the keys!! We can now begin renovations as soon as we have the funding! The remaining need of $500,000 will cover the roof, HVAC, floors, ceilings, lighting, and all necessary renovations.

What has been the previous usage of the building? The building has been a Roman Catholic congregation called Immaculate Conception. The building has not been in use for the past few years.

What is the address? 1500 Druid Hill Ave. It is directly in the middle of our neighborhood, two blocks from our current location.

Will it be enough space? Yes, we believe it will provide sufficient space to worship, grow, and offer ministry to the community. As we fill it up, it is our desire to send people out to plant church other healthy, Gospel-centered neighborhood churches.

What needs to be done? The roof and HVAC are two of the bigger projects. Additionally, everything needs updated or replaced (carpet, ceilings, floors, bathrooms). 

Have you considered using volunteers? Yes! We plan to do so. Our renovations budget assumes that much of the labor will be volunteer.

How much is the total need? In total, we expect the project to cost 1 million. We have already raised and saved half of that which allows us to begin. We still need to raise another $500,000 for renovations.
