On Sunday, April 6, at 2:00 PM, Teays Valley Church of God in Scott Depot, West Virginia, will be one step closer to seeing their dream of a new community center realized. The church will break ground to develop the seventy-four acres of property they own, known as Teays Valley Acres. The fast-growing church has plans to develop the seventy-four acres into a recreation park, conference site, and community center. “God has given us a vision to serve our community by meeting the needs of the whole person,” said Dr. Melissa Pratt, the church’s pastor. “This is the first step in a multiphase plan to create a space that is open for our community to use every day of the week.”
Teays Valley Church of God has partnered with PRAY Construction, and site prep will begin in late April of this year. The cost of the initial phase is estimated at $500,000. Once the site is ready, the church leaders say they will be waiting for the sale of their current building or the provision of funds through some other resource to commence building the $4 million building.
Dr. Pratt commented, “We welcome conversations with anyone interested in our project. We would love to have more community partners come alongside us in this venture. It’s a big task, but we serve a big God. Believing he has called us to see this dream through, we will trust him to provide all of the resources needed.” Persons interested in more information can call the church office at 304-757-9222.
