Jehovah’s Witnesses build a new Kingdom Hall in Walker
WALKER, Mich. – Hundreds of Jehovah’s Witnesses are helping build a new place of worship in West Michigan. Volunteers from across Michigan are building a new Kingdom Hall on Wilson Avenue in Walker. The local congregation outgrew the previous Kingdom Hall. The new facility will have a bigger parking lot, as well as a larger auditorium in which to worship.
Project Coordinator Mike Burden says, “Everybody’s been looking forward to this. This is something we love to do. It’s like a family affair, I guess you could say a big picnic. We get together here, we know each other, we work together on these projects. We have like 2-3 projects each summer that we work together on. They’ve been looking forward to this and everybody works shoulder to shoulder like the scriptures say, so we can get the work done at hand.”
Crews broke ground on the new Kingdom Hall in October. Organizers expect to have the facility finished within three weeks.
