In December of 2011 the vision was cast to build a Family Life Center. This project has been prayed over for many years, but until now God has said that we should wait. Trusting that we have heard from God and that now is the time to begin, Westlake Baptist launched an aggressive capital raising campaign in January 2012. The plan has been laid out to raise a minimum of $200,000 over the next two years and then begin construction on the new building. This is with the faith that in the third year the building will be paid for while construction is being finished.
The Family Life Center will feature spacious classrooms that will host all of our children and youth classes. There will be a large meeting area where our AWANA clubs as well as the youth can hold their own worship services on Wednesday nights or any other time. The Family Life Center will also be home to a full court basketball court that will also be marked for volleyball. Above the basketball court will be a walking track for those who would like to walk year round.
The purpose of the Family Life Center is not to simply build a building. We at Westlake Baptist see this new building as a way to fulfill the Great Commission as given by our Lord Jesus Christ in Matthew 28:18-20. We desire to use this building to reach Franklin County, one family at a time.
