Sunday, May 4, 2008, was a day of celebration for the people at Woodside Presbyterian Church in Yardley, Pennsylvania, and invited guests at the groundbreaking service.
Plans to expand the facility of Woodside Presbyterian Church began to take form several years ago when the leadership of this church made a commitment to be a presence in the lives of future generations. WPH Architects for Ministry of Penndel, Pennsylvania, has assisted them in designing facilities to accommodate their growing congregation.
Renovations and additions to the current building will begin next month. The plans include space for a new multi-purpose sanctuary, classrooms and a fellowship lobby area. Construction is expected to take approximately 10 months under the direction of Berks Ridge Construction.
The area of the new construction was staked out for the groundbreaking ceremony and attendees tied their prayer requests to the stakes. Representatives from decades of families donned hard hats and picked up shovels to join in the groundbreaking and represent building for the generations of the future. Senior Pastor Doug Hogland spoke on the virtue of patience and how this had served them well during the lengthy planning and approval process. WPH Architects and Woodside Presbyterian look forward to the commencement of construction and the completion of this project.
