That's until one member decided to donate $100,000 but only if the congregation matched. "That inspired another member to donate $100,000 to match, and we've raised nearly, if not half, of what we need," said Daily.
A nearly 8,000 square-foot addition will create a main entrance where people can gather, put in elevators, a covered entrance, and improve classrooms for Sunday School among other things.

The church plans to start building the addition next month, with the hopes of having it complete for Christmas.
