Capital Campaign

May 2015 Update:
Through the commitments of parishioners and friends, the Mother of God Parish purchased 8.5 acres on Cherry Hill Road and completed the exterior of the new church. The total cost of these first two phases was $1,050,000. Many donors and volunteers outside our small community have helped achieve this substantial progress to date.

The new temple reflects the style of a village Orthodox Church in Alaska or the Aleutian Islands, in recognition that the Orthodox Faith came to America through the Russian Orthodox mission to Alaska in the late eighteenth century.

Achieving the Vision

To achieve the vision of this new temple, two phases remain to be completed. We estimate that a total of $605,000 is needed for the following phases:

Phase 3: Beautifying the site of the Church

Site Preparation: Grading, drainage, environmental considerations, irrigation, landscaping, paving of driveway and parking lot, plantings, walkways, ADA compliance, and outdoor furniture. We have a note of $200,000 secured but we will need to raise additional funds for this effort.


Phase 4: Creating the Worship Space

Worship Space: Electrical, HVAC, plumbing, narthex (entrance), sanctuary, chandeliers, choir loft, bathrooms, and furnishings. Most of the plumbing, electrical and HVAC is complete. We still need to collect between $23,000 - $33,000 to complete the rest of this phase.


Upon the completion of Phases 3 and 4 above, the new church can be occupied and used for the cycle of Orthodox services, as well as for Christian education and community outreach.

Future Plans:
Phase 5: Creating Fellowship Space and Enhancing the Temple
