Church completes $4 million addition, renovation

Construction on the First Baptist Church of Palmetto project began in May 2018.

PALMETTO — First Baptist Church of Palmetto recently completed a $4 million, 13,365-square-foot welcome center addition and renovation project. 

Construction on the project began in May 2018.

Lakewood Ranch-based commercial construction firm Halfacre Construction Co. did the construction work, according to a press release. 

The new welcome center connects the three buildings on the church’s current campus and serves as the new entrance to the church. The new structure’s design includes an exposed foyer, large storefront windows and a stair tower that extends above the roof line for a steeple-like feature with a back-lit cross.

Halfacre also remodeled the children’s building, gym, sanctuary and office building, totaling 8,559 square feet.
