The day has finally arrived. We are starting construction of our new 450-seat sanctuary. The building will be located 32 feet south of our existing building. The existing building will be converted to all classrooms, after the completion of our new auditorium.

Good News Church continues to add more volunteers as we grow. This past Sunday, I had two more people ask me if they could help in some way. This goes right along with Mario's message on Sunday. People are getting involved with Community Groups, Ministry Teams, and hanging around after the services to get acquainted with people they don't know.

This month, we would like to say thank you to our Hospitality Ministry Team, which is directed by Linda Lynch. As it is often said, you only get one chance to make a first impression. The Hospitality team has been a big part of the success of Good News Church.
