Crossroads Community Church broke ground in July on a new classroom wing that will add approximately 5,200 square feet of space to the facility. The project is scheduled to be completed by the end of this year or early 2019.
“It’s been a long time coming, so we’re really excited about it,” Assistant Pastor David Peters said. “It’s primarily a children’s wing, so there will be eight additional rooms back there.”
The church is using two portable units for classrooms.
“It will be nice for us to move that all inside,” Peters said. “On Sunday morning, it’s primarily going to be used for toddlers up through about sixth grade.”
The counseling center also will move to the new wing, offering more privacy for parishioners.
“They’ll have a separate entrance as opposed to walking through the building to get to the counseling center,” Peters said.
The new wing will allow more security for parents when dropping off kids for Sunday school.
“We took out an area that will now be a large check-in space for parents to kind of congregate as they’re waiting,” Peters said. “The desk sits directly in front of what will be the new entrance to the children’s wing. There is going to be a singular point of entrance. There is no other access to that space.”
The project does include some building remodeling.
“We’re getting carpet throughout the whole facility, but then the current children’s wing is being remodeled a little bit,” Peters said. “We’re taking two classrooms and making them three smaller classrooms to give us more flexibility for our adult Sunday school. We’re also getting two more additional adult classrooms.”
Peters said he hopes the project will allow the congregation to grow and benefit the Fishers community. For more, visit crossroadspca.org.
