C3 Exchange relocating to Grand Haven in Sept.

The C3 Exchange "community' will be moving to a new home in Grand Haven this fall. C3's executive minister, Ian Lawton, said the "spiritual community' will rent the Grand Haven Community Center's Mackinaw Room for Sunday services and events beginning Sept. 25. Lawton said they are still looking for space to host weekday activities.

C3 board members in May put the church facility at 225 E. Exchange St. in Spring Lake on the market — due to the high cost of mortgage payments, utility bills and upkeep, they said. The asking price is $1.9 million.

Lawton said there are three parties interested in the Exchange Street building, but declined to name the suitors or any potential future plans for the site.

“It could be anything from a church to someone who wants to use it for mixed use or a developer — any of these possibilities,” Lawton said. “There are at least three parties I’m aware of that have serious interest. They’ve taken several tours of the building. Hopefully, that will get resolved quickly.

Lawton said renting the Community Center on Sundays and a yet-to-be-determined weekday facility will save the congregation about $10,000 a month.

I'd like to know how C3 plans to handle those buried on the Church grounds. This is a huge factor in this development and for the families involved.
