Groundbreaking Ceremony for New Facility
On Feb. 5, 2017, we held a ceremony to mark the beginning of construction of a very special project. Earle Trent Assembly's new Open Air Gymnasium will be of great service to our guests. This facility will serve many purposes such as outdoor worship, recreation, and shelter from inclement weather. It will be be equipped with electricity for lighting and sound systems. Basketball goals and volleyball net inserts will be installed. It will also have ample storage space for chairs and equipment, so that outdoor worship services can be held. We look forward to the many advantages this facility will provide to the groups visiting at Earle Trent.
The funding for this project has been provided through 3 sources: our annual golf tournament, a special "I Love ETA" offering, and a generous gift from the estate of Marcia L. Wagoner.
