A new fellowship hall is under construction at downtown Augusta’s Lutheran Church of the Resurrection.
“Our space wasn’t adequate for growth and future needs,” said the Rev. David Hunter, the church’s pastor.
Construction began in March after a $1.4 million capital campaign which included $100,000 for the construction of a Habitat For Humanity home for a family with special needs. The house should be dedicated by the first of August, he said.
Reiser Hall was razed to make way for the new space which will have about 1,500 more square feet than the original one. The new Reiser Hall will have about 4,300 square feet including a kitchen and bathrooms. It is scheduled to be completed in the fall.
