ST. LOUIS, MO -- A new $15 million, 45,000-square-foot facility located in South St. Louis County, just north of Arnold and the Meremec River, will officially open on Sunday, Sept. 10. The new structure of White Flag Church is located just south of its current building on Telegraph Road.
The first services in the new building will be on Sunday, Sept. 10 at 9 a.m. and 10:45 a.m. A special grand opening ceremony, which includes an open house, food, and family events, will follow the morning worship services. The public is encouraged to attend.
The new facility was built to enable White Flag to reach more St. Louis and Jefferson County community members. The worship center includes 1,037 seats, additional parking, a community cafe, and a wing dedicated to children's ministries. Future development of the property will include public-use areas, including a fishing pond, trails, open lawns, a boardwalk, and natural wetlands.
White Flag partnered with Goodwin Brothers Construction and Lawrence Group--a local architectural firm, in the planning and building of the facility. Financing is being provided by the Solomon Foundation of Parker, Colorado.
White Flag built the new venue because it desires to increase its impact in the region.
"We built this new building because we believe marriages will be restored here," said Paul Wingfield, lead pastor. "But we also believe additions will be overcome here, and people will meet Jesus and their lives will be transformed."
White Flag Church is a non-denominational, contemporary Christian church located on Telegraph Road in Oakville, Missouri. Its mission is to transform lives by connecting people to Jesus, His word and community. White Flag offers three identical services each week; Thursdays at 7 p.m. and Sundays at 9 a.m. and 10:45 a.m.
