On February 14, 2021, First Baptist Church of South Zanesville (David Nuhfer, Interim Pastor) voted unanimously to approve the addition of a Christian Education wing to the church’s facility. This came after a process of more than a year of formal and informal conversations within the leadership and church membership about the benefits of more space for classes, meetings, gatherings and childcare. The addition will include a new nursery and 4 classrooms, all of which will be equipped with audio/visual equipment and computers. Work started on March 3 (a month earlier than projected) with a “Groundbroken Ceremony” on March 14.
Pastor David said, “The FBC family is excited about this next step in its move toward the future. They want to have a facility that is inviting and provides a place where everyone is welcome as a ‘front porch’ in the community. We want God to be honored as we work to do what He wants to bless.” is welcome as a ‘front porch’ in the community. We want God to be honored as we work to do what He wants to bless.”
