Steel Is Up In Lonsdale
Despite Knoxville having the wettest February since 1873, construction crews are working hard at the Lonsdale Area Ministry Complex. Progress is happening, and steel is up!
While the facility continues to be built, Emerald Youth staff are already connecting with Lonsdale children and their families through our JustLead, Emerald Youth Sports and Calling and Career ministries. On a recent Friday night, families with children in JustLead gathered for a delicious pot luck dinner and a game of Family Feud.
We’re currently serving around 50 young people from Lonsdale and can’t wait to minister with even more youth in the new location, which will include a more than 30,000 square foot multipurpose facility featuring a learning center; two full-size gymnasiums with basketball courts, locker rooms, concessions and kitchen; fitness area with weight room, dance/aerobics room and cardio theater; assembly room for gatherings; and a worship and performing arts area with practice rooms.
