LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - A Lawrence, Kansas, church is breaking ground next month on a new multi-million dollar building.

Lawrence television station 6 News (https://bit.ly/2oroyUs ) reports that the groundbreaking for the new Lawrence Wesleyan church is planned for May 7. Lead Pastor Nate Rovenstine says the new facility will feature a 400-seat sanctuary and a larger youth area.

He says the church has outgrown the former school building where the congregation has been meeting. The new building is expected to be complete next year. When the congregation moves into the new church, it will also usher in a new name, Connect Church.

Rovenstine says the name “reflects who we are, who we want to be and who we’re going to be in the future.”
