“The generosity of ULCSC members is unparalled,” McGinnis said.
The Education Building is the first phase of “Building to Serve” which will eventually see a renewal of the Fellowship Hall, entryway, and sanctuary.
This is the first major expansion of the facility since the church’s initial structure was built in 1965. Other properties around the church had been bought through the decades to accommodate growing membership needs.
“The 7,888-square-foot structure has been under construction since April 2011 and employed the talents of Howard and Associates, Architects and Anderson and House Contractors,” said Ken Jorgenson, Construction Committee chairman.
“We have a million dollar investment in education and learning.”
Girlinghouse was the pastor of ULCSC when the “Building to Serve” campaign began. In the last year, he became bishop of the Arkansas-Oklahoma Synod and is now based in Tulsa.
This is the first expansion of facilities by building something new since the church was built in 1965. The Education Building replaces the tri-plex located on the west of the parking lot.
