Event Description:
Join us for the official Ground Breaking Ceremony for the First Church of God Benton Heights campus!

First Church of God is beginning construction on a new campus building and ministry center in the Benton Heights neighborhood this Sunday, March 24th at 12:30 p.m. at their property at 990 N. Euclid Ave.
 
“This is probably the only new construction in Benton Heights in the past 30 years,” said David Colp, Lead Pastor at First Church of God. “We feel God calling us to do ministry in this neighborhood.”
 
The 9000- square-foot building with a gymnasium will house Sunday worship services for the First Church - Benton Heights Campus, as well as activities throughout the week. “In addition to a larger space for the growing congregation, a key use of this building will be as a tool for the community,” said Colp. “We are dreaming about any number of ways to serve the community such as basketball and volleyball leagues, after-school reading programs, exercise classes and community forums. This will be a space we would love to see help the entire Benton Heights community.”
 
First Church of God, with locations in St. Joseph and Stevensville, has had a presence in Benton Heights since it absorbed the former Benton Heights Church of God in 2010. “We have always felt a burden to be engaged in our community so the opportunity to birth the Benton Heights Campus was a natural next step,” said Colp. “Our vision as a congregation is ‘To Restore God’s Ideal’. We might not be able to make that happen in all of Berrien County but we believe we can go a long way in making that vision a reality as we focus on the Benton Heights community.”
 
The new ministry center will be constructed adjacent to the existing sanctuary on Euclid Ave. The groundbreaking ceremony will take place immediately after Sunday morning worship services.
