Just shy of two months from breaking ground, the Heilbron church/community center is closed in — the roof is on, doors and windows in, foundations and floors for the pastor’s home and ablution facilities have been completed — lightning speed for any construction project, but especially in South Africa.

Congratulations builder Johan Nelson, Heilbron URCSA Building Committee, and Heilbron Community!

Even though the interior still needs some work, a worship service will be held in the new building on Christmas day.

The congregation is motivated to see the building completed so this church can begin serving their community and making a difference in peoples’ lives.
