Update from Webster Conference Center

Work is now underway on the dining hall addition at Webster Conference Center, Salina, Kan.

“Work will continue as long as funds are available, but when we run out of money, construction will stop,” the WCC E-Newsletter reports.

“A $100,000 Matching Challenge Grant was awarded to WCC if we can raise $755,367 by July 1,” the WCC E-Newsletter continued.

“As of the end of 2014, $508,208 has been raised toward this goal. During the first few days of 2015, an additional $11,000 has been given, leaving us with a balance of $236,087 to raise. If we do not raise this amount by July 1, the grant will not be awarded and our KNCSB churches will need to raise the final $100,000 to complete the Dining Hall expansion.

To contribute to the Matching Challenge Grant, make contributions out to Webster Conference Center and designate them to “Matching Challenge Grant.” Send contributions to KNCSB, 5410 SW 7th St., Topeka, KS 66606.

The WCC E-Newsletter also reported:

  • “The Picnic Pavilion Matching Grant was met and the old structure (by the Dining Hall) was demolished to make room for the Dining Hall expansion. When the Dining Hall addition is finished, a new Picnic Pavilion will be constructed. It will be attached to the Recreation Shack which will include a restroom and other amenities for both buildings.
  • “The new 18-Hole Disc Golf Course has been completed. Although some landscape work remains, the course itself has been completed and has been used by many golfers.
  • “Church gifts for new capital improvements at WCC remained strong in 2014—54 KNCSB churches gave regularly to WCC in 2014.”
