Medina church will break ground on new building next month
Calvary Tabernacle hopes to be in new site by Easter
MEDINA – The Calvary Tabernacle Assembly of God will start construction of a new building next month on Maple Ridge Road.
Calvary will continue to hold its Sunday services at the old Medina High School until the new building is ready. Vince Iorio, the church’s pastor, is hopeful the new building will be done by Easter in April 2019.
Contractors will start site work next month. The frame of the 9,306-square-foot building should be up and enclosed by winter. Iorio said the interior work will occur during the winter and early spring.
The project will cost about $1 million. The church has raised $400,000 so far and is seeking more donations for the project. Click here for more information, including a video that shows the church’s ministries.
The old high school will be renovated into apartments by Roger Hungerford and Talis Equity. Calvary owned the old school for about 25 years.
Iorio said the new location has more visibility for Calvary. The site is on Maple Ridge Road, a quarter mile west of Tops on the north side of the road.
The church acquired the 36-acre lot about five years ago. The project includes 58 parking spaces.
Calvary offers the community many ministries, including a food pantry that serves more than 200 families a month, the Stillwaters Counseling Center with about 100 clients a month, and programs for youth.
