Building Project Today

 

We are pleased to announce that we are
now advancing in Phase 3 of our Building Program.
After the ground breaking ceremony of July 17th, 2016
the plans (which were previous approved)
 are being implemented to expand our facilities to construct
a new activity center for
sports outreach ministry,
children/youth events,
educational classes,
community outreach,
fellowship events,
and more!







PREVIOUS PROJECT - COMPLETED 2008

In 2008 our second floor facilities were completed and

that provided over 4200 square feet for our

 

Children, Youth, and Adult ministries!

This represented the completion

of Phase 2 of our
 
Building Project.

Our dedication ceremony for these facilites

took place on August 31st, 2008, followed by an Open House.

We are now holding the following gatherings on the second floor:


Weekly Sunday Morning Children's Church at 9 & 11 am

Weekly Sunday Morning Sprouts Church at 9 & 11 am

Weekly Wednesday Evening Youth Group at 7 pm

Weekly Celebrate Recovery Meetings on Thursdays at 7 pm

Monthly Youth Service on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the Month during

our regular 10:30 am service, starting immediatley after communion.



 

Our NJ State Overseer, Bishop Bruce Rabon cuts the ribbon to our new second floor facilities, with the support of
Sal Napolitano, construction manager, and Vernon Buntin, trustee.




People are shown here celebrating the Dedication of the New Facilites inside one of the new rooms, the Youth Room.
The teens are eagerly anticipating the various uses of this room for their own worship and activities. Note the words on the far wall which are part of a prayer that the teens wrote in their own words. The prayer was printed out and then the letters were individually cut out and used as stencils by those who hand painted each word on the wall to complete the prayer. This prayer mural work was acccomplished to the credit of a team led by Sal Abela and was started under the leadership and vision of our former youth pastor, Rev. Erin Burleson. 


Youth Pastor Jason Wheble watches CJ Schmidt and Savioa Buntin take a few shots at basketball in the new game room. The game room also has a pool table, air hockey table, ping pong table, and foosball table. Selected video games and other fun games are planned as well.



These three young ladies enjoy one of the new classrooms!




 


We will be using all these facilities for ministry to the people

of our congregation and also to reach out and benefit the

lives of additional people in this community.



Since we moved into our new facility in October of 2003,

our active roll has been growing. We adjusted the starting time of our

worship services to provide additional room for
 
visitors and for growth.
 



Below is one of our initial diagrams showing the

floor plan for the 2nd Floor Youth and Children's Space - Phase 2 (on right)

and Gymnasium - Phase 3 (on left).




 
The Family Center/Gymnasium is the large room on your left which will be used for sports outreach including basketball, wrestling, etc. It will also serve as a large room for church fellowship dinners, banquets, and major events. The section on the right represents the second floor and includes a children's church room, youth room, and media room (front) as well as two classrooms (back middle) and a game room (back right). Please note this original drawing has been slightly modified to allow for a different configuration for the restrooms on the middle right.
