We’re excited to announce that the building phase of the Transforming the Heart of the City project is about to really get moving! Demolition of the Symmes-Wilson building is scheduled to begin Monday, June 22. A time-lapse camera has been installed to capture the entire construction project, and you can watch the demolition and construction by Clicking Here. 

Triangle Construction Company has been chosen as our general contractor. Triangle’s recent experience with similar projects, their expertise and excellent management approach, outstanding superintendent, and long-standing history with First Presbyterian Church were the deciding factors.

Since our campaign launch last spring and the congregational vote in October, the Capital Campaign team has seen God moving in the hearts of our members and throughout the first steps of this project. Pledges have increased, projected costs have decreased, and we are continuing to receive donations and pledges in advance of construction.

As you view the demolition and construction, visualize the ministry impact these new facilities will have as we construct a spiritual home where people can be transformed by the love of Christ.

Thank you for your faithfulness in prayer, your generous gifts, and for believing that “with God all things are possible” (Mark 10:27).
