By  | 

TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW)__Church-goers celebrated the beginning of a $4.8 million makeover phase.

The Topeka Bible Church at 1135 Southwest College Avenue turned the page and began the ground breaking of a brand new Family Life Center, that will include a 450 seat auditorium...

The new campus addition will double capacity for the children's area and increases security.

Two children's theaters will be located on the new second floor addition.

Members are excited to be able to see the renovations underway after years of hard work. Church officials say all the money has been donated by church members up front. TBC children's pastor Mark Bucholtz says, "The Lord has blessed us and we have been praying about this and our church has given generously and sacrificed over the last four years. It is an amazing thing to have no debt."

The new addition will alleviate current crowding issues for weekend services and will allow all children's ministries to be housed in one secure location.
