New Kingdom Hall to Be Built By Summer

The church to replace the old building is expected to be completed within the next few months.

Construction of a new Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witness at the corner of Elm Avenue and Emory Street should be completed by summer, volunteers said.

Since the old building was knocked down, the congregation's more than 100 members are worshipping at another church nearby until construction is completed.

"It's going to be pretty similar to the old one but with larger bathrooms and increased accessibility," said Joe White, a volunteer from a congregation north of Poway.

At 4,350 square feet, the new place of worship will be more than 1,000 square feet larger than the old building, which has been in Imperial Beach since 1960.

The sanctuary is being constructed in part by the church's Regional Building Committee, which includes volunteers and construction workers from congregations around the region.

Once construction of the new building begins, there will be more than 100 volunteers on-site, White said. More than 300 may help by the time the new building is completed.

Good points, AlGonz. Interestingly, these individuals are an extreme minority (those who hide behind keyboards and bad-mouth Jehovah). While many have chosen not to accept His truths, most find satisfaction just worshipping as they choose without being whiners. I think I could count on one hand all those whom I personally have known over the past 60 years that have left the Truth but have this insecurity that causes them to speak as apostates. I find it hard to tolerate these cry-babies, when even my own relatives who have left and/or chosen to be removed who at least have the courtesy to respect my loyalty just as I respect their decision to depart.

Our Masonic friends have it down very fine. I do not know where they got it so well. I have often wondered where they found out so many of the secrets of our High and Accepted Order of Masonry. Charles Taze Russell The Temple will not be completed until every living stone is there. And then what? The next thing will be that which our Masonic friends make so much of, and which we make so much of namely: the glorification of the temple. Charles Taze Russell To me it seems as plain as can be that the Bible declares that all the wicked will God destroy; again, that those who, during the Millennial age when brought to a knowledge of the truth, shall prove willful sinners will be punished with everlasting destruction.
