In 2020, we will be celebrating 100 years as North Terrace Church of Christ. In November of 2016 we kicked off Vision 20/20, a celebration of the history of NTCOC and an initiative to set us up for the next 100 years. This initiative included a building expansion but is much more than that. We broke ground on the building in April 2018. The building project included six new classrooms to our kid's end so that we have more room to bring the next generation to Christ and train them up to be a part of His Kingdom. We updated the chapel, kid's lobby, expanded the hallway and designed new bathroom spaces for our Preschool and NT Kids. We also expanded and updated the audio and visual equipment in our worship center to create a better environment for people to hear the message of Christ. We expanded and updated our main lobby, Fireside Room and will be updating the adult bathrooms soon.

Vision 20/20 is not just about getting our building ready for the next 100 years. It's also about preparing our hearts and minds for the next 100 years and reaching out into the community and the world. In the last few years that has included mission trips to Haiti, Colombia, Jamaica, Tennessee and Montana; over 200 child sponsorships through Compassion International in Colombia; a Habitat for Humanity build in our parking lot; assistance on preparation, planning and construction of Kidzville 2 rebuild; 1000's of shoes donated through Soles for Souls; 1000's of items donated to Houston, Texas, after Hurricane Harvey; a new community outreach event that is helping families who have children with special needs, Respite Night; and nearing 200 baptisms.
