In October 2018, Western Avenue Baptist Church voted to build a new children's ministry building. Work began a little over a year later with the groundbreaking ceremony on December 15, 2019. 


The approximately 17,500 square foot building will include eight classrooms, a large multi-purpose assembly room and a serving kitchen. The projected completion date is November 2020.


Western Avenue hopes this new building will simply be a tool to share the Gospel with more children (and their families) as well as to equip children as they grow and learn.


This building project is a huge undertaking requiring a commitment from our entire church family. You can donate online here:
