The church was built in 1920 and has had several renovations and additions. The church has a church school that operates throughout the year.

This project consists of additions and renovations to the existing building. The project has been divided into three (3) different phases of work and further sub-divided into smaller phases to accommodate logistics and facilitate continual Church operation throughout construction. This project is a design-bid-build project, issued by a general contractor.

Phase I consists of the addition of a Welcome Center to the main Sanctuary, the closing of Brown Street and conversion to a pedestrian way, new parking, two (2) new covered canopy entrances, and accessibility upgrades including a new elevator that will serve all existing and new levels.

Phase I will be divided into two separate phases of construction:

Phase IA is the addition of a new entrance and canopy at the rear of the building, with associated new parking and other additions to serve Phase IB. This phase has been completed and issued for bid. The work under this phase is estimated at $185,000.

Phase IB is the addition of a new Welcome Center, entrance canopy, parking, elevator, and renovations to the existing facilities. Schematic design development drawings have been issued for pricing. The work under this phase is estimated at $2,700,000.

Total project cost is estimated at $5 million. The project size is 38,900 gross sq. ft. which includes 7,500 sq. ft. of new addition.
