Ground breaking is held

— Members of the Edmond Seventh-day Adventist Church recently gathered for a groundbreaking ceremony for their new building planned for the northeast corner of Interstate 35 and Danforth Avenue.

The ceremony was held Feb. 23, leaders said, culminating years of planning beginning with the purchase of the 11 acres of land in May 2004.

The church building will have a sanctuary initially seating 250 with space to expand to 365, a fellowship hall seating 200 and eight classrooms. The building is expected to be completed in spring 2015.

“Our new facility has been designed to nestle into the existing wooded site to create a calm and peaceful oasis for worship,” said the Rev. Larry Priest, the church's leader.
