Story of Our Facility
Consider how a closely knit group of approximately twenty families, mostly middle class, went about a task to build a debt-free six thousand square foot building. The church began the planning process and work on the facilities which took more than four years to complete.
First and foremost, they accepted the challenge of time and funds required of them. A four-acre plot of land was secured and the commitment was made and the effort began!
The site was cleared, dirt work completed, the slab was poured, and then came the construction of the steel building frame.
The leaders of the construction were a cadre of three principle workers. Luckily, one was a fine, experienced carpenter, another was an expert in electrical wiring, and the third was a valuable jack-of-all-trades. Three other members were critical contributors to the cause. One provided welders on request, another donated tractors and lifts, the third served as a business manager who kept the work going by assuring the ordering of materials, supplies, and equipment. These men used every spare moment, including after regular working hours, weekends, vacations, and holidays. The ladies provided meals at the site so as to not waste a moment of precious working time.
When the interior construction commenced, the balance of the congregation pitched in nobly. No one failed to do his/her share. Weekends and summer vacations allowed just about everyone to contribute, health permitting. As the end appeared in sight, the congregation moved into the facilities located in the Wildwood area off of Highway 315 on October, 2006.
A dedication service took place on Sunday afternoon, January 28, 2007, to give thanks and praise to God.
