One church addition enhances children's ministry

renovated nursery at Pleasant View Church

The revovated nursery in Pleasant View Church near Goshen, Indiana, was part of a larger project that also involved building a new wing that includes a youth meeting room.

When parents bring their children to Pleasant View Church near Goshen, Indiana, the kids can enjoy an attractive and welcoming space built for them.

The new area of the building is set aside for children’s programming on Sundays, and is used for other types of activities during the week.

The oldest part of the Pleasant View building, which the children had been using but was no longer suitable, was torn down and replaced with the new section.

And part of the building was remodeled for a new nursery and additional accessible restrooms.

An Everence® church loan helped the congregation enhance this ministry and hire a contractor to get the work done.
