Holland Construction Services, Inc. (Holland) will begin work in March on an expansion project for New Life in Christ Interdenominational Church in O’Fallon, Illinois. This expansion will provide much needed space as the congregation continues to grow.
The $3.8 million dollar project involves the expansion and renovation to the church’s sanctuary. This will increase seating capacity to 1,100 from the current 450. The expansion also includes a new west entrance and a large gathering area in the two-story open narthex, café and bookstore. An elevator is also being added to access the second floor and expanded sanctuary balcony. The second floor will provide additional office and more gathering spaces overlooking the narthex below. In addition to the building expansion, the project will also provide additional parking and a circular drop-off drive at the new west entrance.
“Over two thousand members of New Life in Christ Church in O’Fallon are so excited to partner with Holland to complete their long awaited sanctuary expansion,” said Senior Pastor Bishop Geoffrey V Dudley, Sr, D.Min. “Bruce and his team have embraced our vision with grace, integrity and professionalism...they are making it a reality.”
This is the second project Holland has completed for New Life in Christ Church. The first was in 2011 which also involved an expansion.
HCO, Inc. out of Indianapolis, Indiana is the architect on the project. Completion is set for this summer.
