Hillside Presbyterian, KS
Hillsdale , Kansas , 64111

$200,000 loan for expansion In just eight short years, this tiny church’s congregation had grown from 30 to more than 120 members. Facilities that were cozy had become cramped and unworkable. And, with the growth in the community, the situation was only going to become more challenging. The result: The congregation decided to build a large, multi-purpose building that would house a combined fellowship hall/sanctuary space, five large educational rooms, new offices for the pastor and the church secretary, and a brand new kitchen.

House Springs , Missouri , 64111

$1.7 million loan for new church construction When the 132-member congregation of Hillsdale Presbyterian Church began considering what they wanted for their new church, they did a lot of investigation. After their tour of similarly sized churches was complete, they settled on a building design that would offer maximum flexibility, while also accommodating what they expect will be a growing congregation. The result: A U-shaped facility with a sanctuary/fellowship hall space, kitchen and nursery on one side of the “U,” and offices, conference room, and classrooms on the other side.

Topeka , Kansas ,

$550,000 for elevator and HVAC project The historic Westminster Presbyterian Church’s five-story design has great architectural beauty, but can be a real challenge to navigate. Plus, its HVAC system was nearly 40 years old, causing more than a few cold (or hot) mornings for worshipers. The result: The church decided to add an elevator – requiring three doors – and to replace its complete HVAC system, while maintaining the facility to the standards that earned it a spot on the National and Kansas register of historic places.
