Thank you for taking the time to consider helping with our building campaign. Please take a moment to watch the video below to learn about our plans to reach out to our neighbors in Commerce City.

The price of the new church is expected to be right around $3.3M. To date, Living Hope members have contributed more than $150,000 to build a new church. Our capital campaign has two fundraising goals:
1) Raise an additional $180,000 for the down payment on the new building
2) Raise an addition $250,000 over the next 3 years to help offset the debt payments as our church grows
Living Hope is supported in many ways by the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS). One of those ways is through access to funding to build our new church. If we raise enough for a 10% down payment on the property ($330,000), the WELS Church Extension Fund will provide Living Hope with a grant of $590,000. That means that we will start the project with $920,000 of the building already paid off.
Keep an eye on the thermometers at the bottom of this page to see how our capital campaign is progressing. And, please consider making a donation to help us!
Living hope and Rocky Mountain Lutheran high school
In 2009, Living Hope and Rocky Mountain Lutheran High School were both served by Pastor Chad Walta. Since that time, our two ministries have been intertwined. In 2015, we jointly purchased 23-acres of land in the Reunion neighborhood of Commerce City. Living Hope own 5-acres of that land. Together, we also built a 14,000 sq. ft. building to house the high school and Living Hope. For the past five years, we have been worshiping in that building.
Living Hope's and Rocky Mountain Lutheran's close relationship continues to this day and will continue far into the future. We both strive for the same goal, to reunite sinners with their Savior. And, we have found that we are both a blessing to the other in that service. Neither of us could be where we are today without the help of the other. And, we know that we can be more effective in our ministries by continuing to work together.
In the graphic below, you can see a sketch of our land. Living Hope's new church is just a stone's throw from the current high school building. It is our hope that that this new church building is just as much a blessing to Rocky Mountain Lutheran as it is to Living Hope
Down payment progress
Because of the amazing generosity of so many, our down payment fund is fully funded! This means we can start the process of designing and constructing our new building. Look for many updates in the weeks and months ahead.
And thank you again for your support of Living Hope and our efforts to reunite sinners with their Savior!
Three year commitments
To date, more than $190,000 has been committed to our 3-year goal of raising $250,000.
Living Hope friends and families, if you were not able to turn in a paper commitment form during church on Sunday, you can fill out this on-line form instead. But, please only do one or the other.
