The church's pastor, Jason McClendon says they are scheduled to move, August 3rd.

“We're looking for the community to recognize that we are here for them and we're looking forward to worshiping together and also having some outstanding children's ministries," says mcclendon.

The pastor says he hopes having a larger church will encourage more people to join their worship service.

The historic church building will remain in the Pleasant Hill community.

He plans to lease it to other church leaders in the community, who might want a new sanctuary.
