We hope to break ground this summer!
Christ the King is almost to the construction phase of our capital campaign. Last year, the parish raised over $400,000 for our capital expansion project, which includes an addition on the north side for office and meeting space, renovation of the choir loft and sacristy for safety and accessibility, upgrading our kitchen to commercial standards and expanding and resurfacing the parking lot. In addition, we received grant funds totaling $123,000, from the Diocese of New York (Property Support Committee, Episcopal Charities and the New York Altar Guild). We have been notified of a bequest from Fr. David Bronson that will also help us to realize our vision.
The construction bid documents are complete and three contractors have been selected to submit bids for all the projects. The vestry will review the bids and select a contractor. We are hoping work can start sometime in June. We will continue to post updates. Many, many thanks to all who have made pledges and contributions to bring us to this point.
We believe that the added space and improvements to our buildings and parking lot will help us to fulfill our mission of reaching out in love to serve the community. We hope to continue to offer our space to community groups, as well as to all who are seeking a spiritual home. We hope to expand our feeding programs once our kitchen is complete.
We are grateful to God who makes all things possible.
