Williams Memorial United Methodist Church to Host Grand Opening of Newly Renovated Church Campus


Williams Memorial United Methodist Church is hosting a Grand Opening and Celebration event this Sunday, October 27, to celebrate the newly renovated church campus.

They will celebrate Sunday in Combined Worship at 8:15 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. with breakfast in the Pavilion at 9 a.m. with Bishop Scott Jones.

Williams Memorial United Methodist Church has a renovated Education Building that is sporting a fresh new look. This past summer was a busy one working on the space which houses the Welcome Center, the Williams School and additional education classes and grounds. Thanks to the collective effort of many through the recent Rooted and Ready Campaign, extensive improvements were made to enhance the space throughout for a variety of uses. 

Dr. Brad Morgan, Senior Pastor at Williams, shares how the renovation has been well-received. “Many people audibly ‘wowed’ when they first entered the space. May God be glorified and others inspired by what the many members of the building committee, the teachers, staff and numerous volunteers have accomplished.”

Upon entering the building, new paint, flooring and stonework welcome everyone with room to socialize and gather in various areas throughout the foyer. Comfortable chairs, as well as additional tables are plentiful in the Welcome Center, along with a hospitality area and kitchen facilities attached. There is ample storage for the variety of service projects which are ongoing at Williams. The revised floor plan allows for a complete update of building restrooms, Sunday School classrooms and meeting areas. Inviting and soft hues exist throughout the building with pops of color showcasing the children’s areas, as well as new furniture for study, creativity and fellowship in classrooms designed for all ages.

The Williams School also has many various updates including the addition of three new classrooms, increased security through entry and exit doors to the preschool, as well as a renovated music room, and a new and improved children’s play space. The school’s enrollment steadily increases every year, and these renovations will be able to keep up with that demand. New families joining Williams will find inviting and welcome areas to meet others and become a part of the many programs in place at the church.

The renovation includes outdoor improvements as well. Construction of a new walking trail and sport playing fields is underway for recreational use. Dr. Morgan and church staff are thrilled with how everything has turned out so far and look forward to the years ahead enjoying the facilities. “Williams Memorial United Methodist Church has a history of serving our community through our church property,” he explains. “We are excited to expand our capacities to be in service to the community and continue to be a beautiful place that is a blessing to all.”

In addition, Dr. Morgan wishes to thank the many people who came together to see this project through to its completion. “As United Methodists, we love all God’s children. I am thrilled about the people of Williams’ investment in serving the families and children of our community.”
