One local church is celebrating Easter Sunday with
a special ground breaking.
Halfway Creek Lutheran Church in Holmen broke ground
on a new addition today.
Their current church building was built back in 1913.
The new addition will include fellowship and educational
church offices and a covered entrance.
The addition will be added to the front.
leaving the historic sanctuary in place.
The church says the project is possible because of
generous donations from members.
One congregation member donated $100,000, asked the
rest of the congregation to match that, it was a matching
pledge type of thing, that inspired another congregation
member to donate another $100,000 to match.
The church hopes to have the addition done by the
end of the year.
