On January 15th, 2014 Central raised a goal of $305,000 to relocate a Sprung building from Ooltewah. This building served as the home of a United Methodist Church called Lighthouse. Today it is vacant, and the Holston Conference of the United Methodist Church has graciously given us the building. During the next 4 months we will be deconstructing, moving, and raising this structure on our campus. Our hope is the have this building on line for summer programs in 2014.
On February 8th, we will be taking a team of volunteers to Ooltewah to load all of the chairs, tables, and other equipment that is currently within the Sprung structure. These items will be reused in both the Sprung and our current building. Some items have already been relocated to our current facility and are being used here. There is an estimated value of over $125,000 in reusable equipment and we are very blessed to be able to repurpose these items for the sake of the Kingdom.
February 16th we will be breaking ground between our two services. We invite you all to join us at 10:00 am for this special celebration. A reception will follow after the ground breaking. Stay tuned for more information in the days to come.
