Avon United Methodist Church broke ground on Sunday evening, June 12th on a 4.7 million dollar addition to their building, which is located at Rockville Road and State Road 267 in Avon. The addition will include a 550 seat Worship Center, a Gymnasium/Fellowship Hall and commercial Kitchen, several additional classrooms, and also the retrofitting of the present building to meet their current needs with a Chapel, expanded Library, and additional Conference rooms. Rev. Larry Kurtz, Lead Pastor of the 1200 member congregation said, “This has been a long but rewarding journey, as the dream of reaching out more effectively into the community for the Kingdom is now becoming a reality.” The project, managed by Edwards Rigdon Construction Company, should take around 12 months to complete with a building dedication set for September of 2017.
