For those who have gone through it from a pastoral perspective, what are the stages a church family goes through when deciding on building an addition? For me, this is what I have experienced so far - Attendance is up and need for more space is noticed by several workers. We make due for quite a while, using closets, garage, shed, etc. It's finally brought up in a session of business. A buiding program is approved, committee is formed. A very few influential senior adults begin to complain that the pastor is only paying attention to the needs of the young adults, youth, and children. Certain people work in the background to derail building program - but not openly in a session of business. Brothers and Sisters, is there no easy way to build a much-needed addition without being targetted?
