Over a decade ago, Pleasant View imagined a time when it would need a new sanctuary and more classrooms. That vision is becoming a reality. Nine months ago, there was only a dirt pad. Today, a steel structure sits atop a solid concrete foundation. With each passing day, less imagination is required as the new spaces begin to take shape.
Spearheading the project is the building committee chairperson, Matt Jackson and project manager, Daryl Mast. They are part of a larger building committee made up of interested people from the congregation. There are also a series of subcommittees working together to approve bids and seek answers to all of the questions that come with constructing a new building. When complete, the new building will house a new sanctuary, new library, new offices and a host of new classrooms all geo-thermally heated and cooled.
Pastor Jeff Selzer hopes that the project will be complete in time for Christmas, though when asked about a projected completion date, he is quick to respond, “When it’s done.” Once the new building is complete, the 1928 building and 1967 sanctuary will be torn down to make room for more parking.
