Sunday was a very special day for the church at Estes. For more than a decade the Estes leadership has struggled trying to determine the best path forward for future growth of the congregation. We have realized that our classroom space is at or above capacity much of the time, our facilities for fellowship are at capacity for many of our fellowship gatherings and our auditorium is close to full capacity several Sundays throughout the year. The leadership has looked at many options including moving to another location, expanding our facilities to the north behind the Scott house, or attempt to purchase a few acres of land directly to the south of the current church property and add additional facilities in that direction. After looking at all of these options, the eldership has concluded that purchasing additional acreage to our south is the most cost effective path forward.
