Sanibel Community Church will celebrate the groundbreaking for the new Sanctuary building on Tuesday, Aug. 23 beginning at 5 p.m.
The new building will consist of a 600-seat Sanctuary, a bookstore and church administrative offices. This occasion heralds the culmination of more than one year of cooperation between the church and community leaders.
The existing Family Life Center will also be getting a face lift during the construction phase in order to house the growing Children's Ministry on the first floor, and Youth Ministry to teens on the second floor. Sanibel Community Church in recent years has had sustained growth in their Children and Youth Ministries.
The Historic Sanctuary will remain and continue to be used for an 8 a.m. Traditional Service, as well as for weddings, memorial services and other community events.
Sanibel Community Church is located on 1740 Periwinkle Way (next to Jerry's Market). A reception with light refreshments will follow the groundbreaking.
