APRIL, 2017 LAND Purchase & DEDICATION
Since our founding as a mission church in 2010, King of Kings has sought to grow God’s kingdom here in the North Georgia mountains. As we have grown, we have been joined by members travelling to our current church home in Jasper from Blue Ridge and Ellijay to Jasper, Ball Ground, Canton and Calhoun. What a joyful congregation has been gathering in response to prayer and the work of the Holy Spirit!
Following the service on Sunday, April 23, hardy members of King of Kings Lutheran church braved sporadic showers to dedicate their newly acquired property. The future church site is a beautiful woodsy hill located on Appalachian Circle just north of the intersection of 515 and Philadelphia Road. Senior Pastor Ernie Knoche led the brief ceremony, which closed with the singing of “This Is My Father’s World,” and exclamations of “Alleluia! He Is risen, indeed!” Planning is now beginning for church construction on this new property. In the meantime, the congregation will continue to meet at their current location at 57 Kingdom Drive, just off Cove Road.
OCTOBER, 2017 CHURCH DESIGNS APPROVED
On October 15, 2017 at our congregational meeting we approved the floor plan and general design for the new church, and we authorized the start of detailed design. At that same meeting, the congregation authorized the Church Council to proceed with a loan application with LCEF in the amount not to exceed $800,000 with the stipulation that the Capital Campaign achieve at least 80% of the $250,000 Capital Campaign goal.
March, 2018 Ground Breaking Ceremony
In 2017 we purchased six acres just north of Jasper and have been busy planning, raising funds, and designing a new building that will allow us to continue to grow and give glory to the Lord. We are just about to start construction and celebrated the groundbreaking for our new church building on Saturday March 24, 2018 at 3:30 PM.
Look for our sign at Appalachian Circle on the west side of Highway 515 north of Walmart and Philadelphia Road, and watch us grow!
