Place to Gather

Lifespring is building a place to gather that will bless the neighborhoods, schools, & families in the greater Richmond Spring Grove Community.

What if…

What if the local church was the heartbeat of the community? Not only for church on Sundays, or limited to church events. What if the local church was the place people in the community wanted to come to gather?

A place to learn, play, serve, and just hang out.

LifeSpring Church and Community Center will be a place in the community where local residents come to gather. It will be a place where people come when there is a natural disaster either in their lives or throughout the community. The purpose of the facility, simply put, is to make disciples of Jesus Christ while at the same time blessing all the community.

Our Plan

In order to best meet this vision, we are listening to the needs of the community through forums, surveys, statistics and conversations with many people. We are collaborating with the Villages of Spring Grove and Richmond as well as businesses, service organizations, schools and other churches.

Because LifeSpring Church and Community Center will be highly visible and represent Christianity in our area, we want the project to be a warm, aesthetically pleasing, highly functional and well-maintained facility. Visitors will be warmly welcomed. While the facility is meant for all people, LifeSpring is unapologetically Christian, committed to the Scriptures and what they contain.

Site Location

The site is located at Route 173 and Siedschlag Road. We are excited about the possibility of LifeSpring Church and Community Center being located at such a visible and central location. This location will draw folks from Antioch, Richmond, Spring Grove, McHenry, Fox Lake, Johnsburg, & more.
