A group of volunteers from all over the country have been constructing a new facility for Liberty Baptist Church. 

Pastor Rodney Burdette said the congregation decided the new building was needed sooner rather than later.

Volunteers RV's are parked around the original church build while construction takes place next door on the new facility.

“We’re in an old building, it was built in 1977 and it’s been a lot of work keeping it functional,” he said. “What happens is you’re putting lots of money into an old building or you can put that money toward a new one.” 

Construction started at their 11195 Airport Road location in Rouzerville last year with clearing the land and grading the surface to lay the foundation. 

When finished, the two-story building is set to be around 6,500 square feet and include a new sanctuary, bathrooms, Sunday school rooms and offices, as well as an infant nursery. 

Construction continued on Tuesday as volunteers work to complete the new church building.

“The idea is we want it to be more open and allow people to not feel crowded when they walk in,” Burdette said. “We also plan on adding screens and a whole new sound board and visual system.”

While construction is ongoing, plans for the immediate future include a fair amount of concrete work, parking lot paving and drywall, as well as paint and fixtures.
