After more than three years of planning, design and construction, King of Glory Lutheran Church in Williamsburg recently dedicated its new 12,000 sq. ft. building expansion.
According to Senior Pastor Bill Harmon, the church's significant growth - and comments from congregation members -- spurred the examination of its long range needs. The expansion features a large multi-purpose room with flexibility to divide it to accommodate different size events. The room is equipped with all new projection and sound technology with multiple screens situated around the room.
The addition also includes classrooms; meeting rooms; and much needed office and storage space. With some 70 events held each week at King of Glory, along with its preschool and Sunday School programs, the need for more room was evident. "We called our expansion project Making More Room," said Pastor Harmon. "Our focus was all about making more room for everyone in our community. That has been the heart of this congregation for the last 25 years. Our desire is for ALL to know the love of Jesus."
The $3.5 million project was led by a Building Committee who oversaw the design and construction of the new space. Financing of the project was led by a Capital Campaign Committee. "These committees were staffed by more than 100 church volunteers who devoted thousands of hours to the success of Making More Room. King of Glory was very blessed by their talent and commitment to leading the project from beginning to end", said Pastor Harmon. "We also thank our construction partners-Ritchie-Curbow Construction and Toano Contractors, Inc. for their outstanding work and support in making Making More Room a reality."
