United Methodist Church Breaks Ground for New $3.5 Million Building
(SAVANNAH, GA) Richmond Hill United Methodist Church (RHUMC) held a groundbreaking ceremony for a new $3.5 million Ministry Center to be built on the church campus at 9050 Ford Avenue in Richmond Hill, Ga.
The 14,000 square foot building will include a fellowship hall to seat 400 people and a commercial kitchen; a worship space for the Church’s contemporary worship service; a youth center that will accommodate 120 youth; and office space. The project will also include modifications to the current fellowship hall to convert the space into a nursery area and music suite.
“Our new Ministry Center was developed to serve the continuing needs of our growing congregation and our community,” said RHUMC Senior Pastor Dr. Glenn Martin. “Through this new facility, we will be better equipped to fulfill our mission be a community of faith that glorifies God through worship, service, and witness; to serve the needs of our community and to grow together as followers of Jesus Christ.”
The project is being built by the Aspen Group of Frankfort, IL, with Felder & Associates of Savannah serving as architect, and Coleman and Co. Inc. of Savannah, serving as civil engineer. Representatives from those companies participated in the ribbon cutting ceremony alongside Dr. Martin, as well as, Richmond Hill Mayor Harold Fowler, UMC Coastal District Superintendent Wayne Moseley, chairperson of the building committee Mary Ann Henderson, chairman of the finance committee Bob May, and other church officials.
