It is official, Out of the Box is purchasing the property at 516 and 522 North Main Street in Hillsville Virginia. The above picture is where we signed the purchase agreement and we have been awaiting final approval from all necessary entities and those things are complete.
Out of the Box started on Christmas Eve 2010 in the space at 516 N. Main St. with seating for 160 people and soon had the awesome opportunity to expand to 2 Sunday morning services to accommodate those coming to worship. In February 2015 we added a 3rd worship service on Wednesday evenings and the 3 combined services now see more than 300 people in worship each week.
Currently Out of the Box uses about 15,000 sq ft of space and has been pushed for needed room really from the beginning in 2010. When the purchase of the new space is complete we will have 40,000 sq. ft. of space available. Plans now include a new worship area to seat 400 plus in worship, a relocation of youth ministry space, and a larger space for children’s ministry which is growing exponentially.
Part of the DNA of Out of the Box has been to provide adequate space for worship and other ministries without spending on elaborate furnishings and design and we will continue that trend, nothing fancy. Every sq. inch of space will be available to be used for any and all ministry needs.
We are excited as a team at Out of the Box to share this awesome news and although change may be slow at times our plan is to start immediately making new ministries happen.
Stay tuned and share with your friends, we will take the 1st swing of the sledge hammer this weekend as we celebrate what God has done, is doing, and will do through the people of Out of the Box. Why not plan to join us this weekend? Sunday morning at 10am and 11:15am, Everyone Is Welcome!
