We have reached our financial goal to begin building our new church, Lord willing in June. Thanks be to God! And Thanks to all, who have sacrificed and given over the last few years including those who helped as with the 20/20 Vision Project this spring. We welcome any donations to help us as there will always be extra expenses as we move forward with our building construction. We will still need donations as we move along. We will still need donations in the future as there are things ahead of us, that we are raising money for. Donations can be mailed to Antelope Hills Christian Church, 2075 280th Avenue, Canby Minnesota 56220.
November Update 11-02-2020
We endured some Thanksgiving like weather a month early with snow, wind, ice and cold. Thanks to all the crew on two different occasions that helped shovel snow (Yes, SNOW on our new floor). As of November 2nd, the roof is on the East side of the church ready for the shingles and the Schlenner crew along with some folks from Antelope Hills are hoping to set the remaining West rafters this first week of November. The roofline is tall and the building is really beginning to stand out against the blue sky.
October Update -10/1/2020
The concrete has all been poured and finished by Merritt Construction and Penning Construction. Heating and plumbing has been installed in the floor by CAS plumbing. The sewer system is being completed and connected up to the city sewer by Stu Frazeur and crew as we go into October. Work has progressed steadily on the walls by Ron Schlenner Construction. Many people are excited to see the building structure taking place. Rafters will be going up shortly. Thanks to all the contractors that have helped thus far and for those working on the continuing project and thanks to all who have helped from our congregation with equipment, time and work! Many thanks as well to Kent Goplen for leading the way as our General Contractor and all the others from the church who have brought equipment and donating many hours cleaning up and helping with the digging and cement work.

July Update -7/28/2020
A great deal of work has gone into our building project that is not really evident. Rocks have picked up, fill dirt has been brought in, packed and leveled, much of this by members of our congregation. Contractors have gotten a lot of work done. The water lines are in, the gas line is in, the footings and the foundation walls are in, the underground plumbing network of pipes are in, the electricity has been brought to building site and other things are done. In the weeks ahead, the concrete will go in, along with the in-floor heating pipes, electrical work and other items completed. Hopefully we will begin to see the actual construction of the building starting in the next month. Many thanks, to Kent for heading up our construction project and for bringing his equipment for various jobs. Thanks to Stu and crew, Nathan, Ralph and Delroy for bringing their equipment as well. Thanks to Reed for keeping things on track, as the Chairman of the Building Committee. Thanks to all the people picking up rocks and working with shovels and rakes and a special thanks to the young people with their strong backs for helping with the packing of the fill.
