Atlantic Avenue UB (Franklin, Pa.) held a groundbreaking service on Sunday afternoon, March 29. Associate pastor Patrick Daugherty explains:
“We are about to begin an expansion project that will increase the size of our facilities by approximately 17,000 square feet. The new addition will connect both of our existing buildings, which will allow for easier access to our facilities. The new area will include much-needed classroom space for adults and youth, as well as a large multipurpose room that can accommodate 200 people.”
Rev. Gary Small has been pastor of Atlantic Avenue since 1991. During that time, attendance has grown from the 100s to nearly 600.
Bishop Phil Whipple was on hand for the groundbreaking.
