    I don't want anything huge, I just want my own building for the children's ministry! Haha!! A building that includes a gym with a stage, kitchen, and many classrooms. We currently share space with our preschool so I am not able to do all that I would like in those classrooms. Our church owns a 1 acre field, but with the debt of a new sanctuary, we are unable to build anything. Maybe one day……
