TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — The Terre Haute First Baptist Church broke ground Sunday for construction on its new community center.
Pastor John Campbell said this day has been long awaited.
“We’re here today after about two years of planning,” Campbell said. “We hope it can be a place where our church has relationships with our community that benefit all of us.”
The center will feature a gym and have many multi-purpose rooms. The church also plans to conduct Sunday school and youth services in the building.
Campbell said it is important to offer the center to everyone in the community to expand the walls of the church.
“We’re also expanding so that we can provide our community with different opportunities that do not already exist,” Campbell said.
The Family Life Center is expected to be completed by Easter of next year.
