New Church Building

These are exciting times as we see our property at Highway 67 and Highland Valley Road being readied for actual construction of our new church home.  After the grading is finished the next step is installing storm drains from both Highway 67 and Highland Valley Road to the north end of the property.

As we eagerly watch these changes taking place, please continue to pray for God's Blessings on this effort to build our new church home at the entrance to Ramona. Also thank Him for bring our way numerous breaks and discounts in planning and contruction costs.
