Campus Expansion and Renovation
Being an active church in an active construction zone
Thank you for your patience as we learn together how best to navigate being an active church on an active construction site. It’s an exciting time to be at Central. Thank you for your continued prayers for this project and for our church.
Bye, bye Brown Street
Construction gets underway
Brown Street closed
Sunday, January 6 was a historic day in the life of our church as we broke ground for the construction phase of our building project. More than a year of mostly behind-the-scenes work has led us to what is now a very visible phase of our “Building on the Past, Building for the Future” campaign.
Construction on the new building is scheduled to begin on January 28, while conversion of the current fellowship hall to children’s space is scheduled to get underway in November.
“Prepare ye the way . . .”
The first step toward construction was the razing of the old youth building, along with the house next to it. In this photo taken December 6 workers complete the demolition of the buildings, while a tree company removes trees. The next step is utility relocation.
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.
