‘New mission, new place'

Blodgett said the church currently meets at a Hilton Garden Inn not far from their targeted area. He said about 50 people, many of them members who worshipped at the Greystone site, gather for Sunday services at the hotel.

Blodgett said the congregation bought the property where the new building will be built about two years ago. He said the new building will be an estimated 4,500 square feet and is expected to be completed by Easter. He said the church plans to build a playground and sports fields for the community's use.

Blodgett said the congregation chose to relocate in the Deer Creek area because of the new neighborhoods and apartments that have been built there in recent years and others planned for the future.

“We felt we could really offer a church that could be a center of the community and could help people connect to Christ,” he said. “We have a new mission and a new place.”
