New Start for Pleasantville Church

DSC took part in the groundbreaking ceremony on March 30 for the Pleasantville Christian Church as they look forward to building a new 2-story, 8,000 SF church.

The ceremony took place one year exactly from the devastating fire that took their 120-year-old previous church. Part of the ceremony was Superintendent Jayson McDonald opening a time capsule saved from the ruins of the capstone. Inside they found very fragile paper (though still very legible) from 1900 telling of the beginnings of their church history and coins. Don Snyder also spoke at the ceremony.

The project includes a 189-person sanctuary, a fellowship hall, nursery, kitchen, classrooms, pastor’s study, baptistry, narthex, lounge, and storage spaces.  Construction is expected to be completed this fall.
