We are really enjoying being in our new church home. God has blessed us in so many ways and we are grateful. As we announced last weekend, we are in our campaign to fully pay for all of the remaining expenses associated with our move. We still owe our contractor for the work they did to up-fit our building to meet our needs. Our desire is to pay them as quickly as possible to eliminate this debt.
If you would like to be a part of eliminating this debt, please pray and ask God what your part should be and then simply obey and do what He says. We want you to know that we sincerely appreciate you and your faithfulness and know that God has good things in store for you.

We are so excited to be in our new church home. We want to again thank everyone for your prayers, support and help in moving over the last couple of months. As we prayed last Sunday, we believe God has a great plan for SpringHill Church and He has great things in store for us here in our new location.
We want to encourage you to make plans to be here tomorrow and invite someone to come with you. We promise that all of us will leave different because of God’s presence and His Word.
See you tomorrow!

It is a great day at SpringHill Church!
We are making final preparations for you to be here tomorrow morning at 10:30 am.
Please make plans to join us for some “hang-out” time with our family, drink some coffee, and we will pray and dedicate our new home to the Lord and thank Him in advance for all He is going to do through us here in our city.

Well, it has been a great week on our new home project. All of the major work is completed and only some very minor “touch-ups” remain.
We passed our plumbing inspection, our electrical inspection, and even the Fire Marshall gave us a temporary occupancy certificate pending a final inspection once our chairs are in place in the auditorium. That left the final building inspection for this afternoon and we passed that, however, the inspector did not receive a letter of certification from one of the sub-contractors and therefore would not issue the final certificate of occupancy for us to be able to have service this weekend. BUMMER!
Another thing that would have made trying to have a service Sunday very interesting was that we are not be able to get our storage units until next Wednesday and would not have any chairs, children’s equipment, etc.
It is in these times that we each have a choice. Do we get upset, pitch a fit, and yield to the desire to want to “show out” OR do we stay in peace and trust that God is still on the throne and we overcome anyway? Well, we choose to stay in peace and know that God has some really big things in store for SpringHill Church.
So, long story short, our first service will definitely be July 19th at 10:30 am. Go ahead and make plans to be at our new home on the 19th and ready to celebrate the goodness of God because He is faithful. Thank you again for your prayers and support as we press on to victory!
We love you all very much!

Hello SpringHill Family!
We have essentially completed the work to be done on our new home and it looks great! We can’t wait for you to see it.
However, due to the holiday, we will not be able to get our final inspection and Certificate of Occupancy from the City until the first of next week. (Barring any adjustments that have to be made due to code requirements). Although this may seem like a tedious process, and it is, this guarantees that we have done everything right and there will not be any issues with the City later. We would rather do it right and have these folks on our side than to cut corners and have to deal with it later.
We are now planning to have our first worship experience in our new home, Sunday, July 12th. We want you to enjoy this 4th of July weekend with your family and friends and please remember to do two things:
- Give thanks to God for this great country that we live in and the freedoms we enjoy.
- Pray for our church and other great churches as we are seeing now more than ever that we have a lot of work to do to see people’s hearts come to Christ and make a difference for God’s Kingdom.
Also, thank you so much for your continued support of your church. You guys are awesome and please know that God sees your faithfulness.
We love you all and look forward to celebrating with you all the wonderful things that God has done over the last few months. Remember what God said to us:
“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.
(Isaiah 43:18-19 NIV)

Hey SpringHill Family! We hope everyone is having an awesome week.
Work is going very well in our new home. (See the pictures below) We want to direct every available resource towards our up-fit, so we are going to take this weekend off and not meet at the Hilton Garden Inn. We encourage you to spend some time with your family and have fun this weekend.
If everything goes well, we may have our certificate of occupancy from the city by next weekend, July 5th and will have our first worship experience then.
This is an exciting time for us so stay in faith and thank God for helping us to press through this last little bit.
We love you!
UPDATE – June 10, 2015
We hope everyone is doing well. The construction team is working as hard and fast as they can to get our space up-fit for us but we are not quite ready yet. SO…
We have planned something very special for our church family for the next TWO weeks – June 14th and 21st.
We will be meeting at the Hilton Garden Inn at Ayrsley which is just across South Tryon from our new home.
The hotel address is: 1920 Ayrsley Town Blvd, Charlotte, North Carolina, 28273
We will start at our normal time of 10:30 am but you do not want to be late either weekend. Why, you may ask? BECAUSE WE WILL BE HAVING A FULL, FREE BREAKFAST BUFFET BEGINNING RIGHT AT 10:30 AM.
We will eat, catch up and visit with each other (because that’s what families do), Pastor Brad will share a few things, and then you can have the rest of the day to relax.
You can park in the parking deck just across the street or in the hotel lot directly in front.
We have missed each of you so much and are very excited to have this informal, relaxing time to catch up and see each other.
UPDATE – June 5, 2015
We are so close to completion in the up-fit of our new space. Work is progressing and we are being told that there is great reason to believe that we could have our Sunday worship experience in our new space next Sunday, June 14th.
This is what we want to challenge you to do:
- Enjoy one more Sunday with your family and rest up for there will be a lot of work that needs to be done once we are there and are getting ready for the new people God wants to bring to SpringHill.
- Please continue to pray for the inspection process to go quickly and smoothly with the City of Charlotte / Mecklenburg County.
- Check back to this page regularly for updates on times that we may need your help to get some things done to finish getting our new home ready.
- Continue to pray for SpringHill and support your church with your faithful giving.
Please know that we love you and are desperately looking forward to seeing everyone on the 14th!
UPDATE – May 30, 2015
Work is progressing in our new facility but we will not be able to have our certificate of occupancy to assemble there just yet. Therefore, we will not be having our weekend worship experience this weekend, May 31st but we are going to plan to meet Sunday, June 7th. We will let you know of all the location details as soon as they are available.
Please continue to pray that the construction and inspection processes will be speedy and as always thank you for your continued support of SpringHill.
We love and miss seeing each of you!
UPDATE – May 15, 2015
SpringHill Family – we will be having our worship experience at our present location (3585 Centre Circle / Fort Mill) this weekend, May 17th. We will not be having a worship experience on May 24th, Memorial Day Weekend. Make plans to enjoy that time with your family.
Stay tuned as we plan for Sunday, May 31st.
We are very excited about the next step God is taking us on as a church. We will be locating to this new space in the next few weeks as the upfit renovation work is completed.
The new address will be:
2520 Whitehall Park Drive
Charlotte, NC 28273
