Construction Begins ...

Fundraising Continues ...

Thanks Jason & crew!
After the ceremony, we had a pig roast for our entire congregation. It was a great opportunity to raise funds and to celebrate such a joyous event.
Praise God from whom all blessings flow!

Eagerly awaiting the Pig!

Beginning with the Word ...

Our pastor read from Isaiah 54, highlighting verses 2 and 3. "Enlarge the place of your tent, and let them stretch out the curtains of your dwellings; Do not spare; Lengthen your cords and strengthen your stakes. For you shall expand to the right and to the left, and your descendants will inherit the nations, and make the desolate cities inhabited."

Our building is not only for us, but also for our community - that we may be a beacon to those around us.

Ground Breaking Ceremony!

 Took place on Saturday, May 12th, 2012.
