Bethany Community Church | Ground Breaking Ceremony - Washington, IL

Yesterday afternoon Bethany Community Church held a groundbreaking ceremony for their new weekday building and site development on existing farm ground on the north side of Washington, Illinois. The new facility is a 21,080 sq ft building that is 1 story on slab on grade construction with a mechanical mezzanine accessible by stair. The facility will serve the church’s weekday ministry and special events, but capable of accommodating a Sunday worship.

The building consists of classroom spaces of various sizes, a nursery, a kitchen, restrooms, mechanical room, an entrance lobby, and a multipurpose room. The lobby and multi-purpose room are 2 story height spaces with a mechanical mezzanine located above a half the lobby space.

The P.J. Hoerr 100 Year Anniversary truck also made an appearance.
