Making Room // Pinelake Clinton
A 24-month initiative to make room for more people and more life change.
Making Room for Our Community
Beginning Sunday, March 19, our church family will have a new home at 201 Clinton Center Drive just off of I-20. This new location makes our church more visible to our community and gives us nearly three times the space we have in our current facility.
Every square foot has been renovated to meet our ministry needs and to create a better experience for the friends, family, coworkers and neighbors you invite to worship with us. Our auditorium has more than doubled in size and we have gained valuable space for children and students to hear God’s word and worship.

Frequently Asked Questions
Pinelake has entered a season of incredible growth at all of our campuses. We believe God is calling us to make room in our hearts and in our facilities for our neighbors, friends and family members. To do so, we’re committed to a 24-month initiative we’re calling Making Room that begins on March 19, 2017. During this initiative, we’re asking God to work and provide through His people so that we can add space for students, children and families to hear the life-changing message about Jesus.

If you’re going south on Springridge Road, turn right onto Clinton Center Drive near Shoney’s. The new facility will be on your left.
Starting March 19, there will be two services at 9:15 and 11 a.m.
On March 1, the major building construction work should be completed, then we will begin adding audio/visual equipment and making other finishing touches.
Our last service in the current facility will be Sunday, March 12.
Our first services there will be on Sunday, March 19. We’ll have an official “grand opening” for the community on Easter Sunday, April 16.
Pinelake Church is investing $3 million to secure and renovate the new building. Pinelake Clinton will pay the lease for the next five years ($800,000 spread out over five years in the annual budget) and then purchase the building outright for $2 million.
Once we move out, our lease on the current facility lasts through 2018. We hope to sublease it.
Our new auditorium will hold 700 people per hour (compared to 330 in our current space).
The new facility has nine rooms that will hold 180 preschoolers per hour. That compares to 6 rooms for 60 people in our current facility.
Every Sunday, elementary students will join together in a 100-seat theater and then an even larger small group space.
Yes. We’ve shared space with Pinelake Kids in our current facility, but the new facility will include a 150-seat theater that’s set aside for middle school students on Wednesday nights at 6 p.m. and high school students each Sunday at 5 p.m.
Making room for more people to join us at Pinelake Clinton means we’ll need more people to serve preschoolers, children, students and in guest services.
What you can do now?
As we are faithful to respond to where God is leading we will see Mississippi continue to change one Life Change Story at a time.
This is an exciting time in the story of Pinelake Church, and we believe that God has opened new opportunities for us. Keep praying that God will transform lives, unify us behind His purposes and provide the resources we need to make this vision possible.
