Progress toward our fund-raising goal
It's all coming together
We continue to make great progress on the new addition. We’ve started the process of connecting the new building to our existing buildings. That process will continue as we work to get the whole project under roof. We hope to have the roof work complete by the end of August. At the same time, all kinds of HVAC, electrical and plumbing work will continue throughout the month, along with the installation of new stairwells and some continued exterior framing for places like the Porte Cochere and Gathering Vestibule. As our construction teams work, we have church teams busy at work as well. Our furnishings committee is actively working in coordination with our staff to begin the process of selecting and ordering all of the new furniture and decorative items that will be needed to make our new spaces complete— and to make them feel like Central. Please continue to remember the building project and capital campaign in your prayers. They’re working! We couldn’t have dreamed of being in a better position at this point in the process than we are right now.

Steel structure is complete
As surely you’ve noticed, we made GREAT progress on the building in June. With the steel structure complete and concrete poured on the second level, the project moves forward with three priorities for July.
First, the interior wall framing will begin to take shape as you see metal studs go up inside the building. Second, in the next few weeks you’ll begin to see roof beams being placed to tie the new building to the existing one. And third, the construction team will begin working to get the whole project under roof.
We’ve enjoyed great weather recently and hope the clear skies continue. Please continue to keep the project and those working on it in your prayers as we continue to build on our past and build for our future.From Broad Street July 9 (above) and Spring Street July 14 (below)

What’s included in our campus expansion and renovation?
Central Baptist Church has a rich history that has grown and evolved for over 120 years. Now work is underway on a major expansion and renovation of our facilities. Included in a new building on the site of the old youth building and Brown Street are
- a new fellowship hall
- new youth space
- a gathering space
The current fellowship hall will be converted into children’s space, making it possible for all children’s activities to be on the same floor of the building.
