Toward the beginning of this year we merged our two congregations back together in an effort to reposition ourselves for long term growth and impact into the Bay Area of Houston. One of the driving reasons for the merge was the evident need for OneLife to acquire our own property as we continue to grow.
Little did we know things would happen this quickly. We have now entered into contract with League City United Methodist Church to purchase their vacant church building where they used to meet off of FM518 and I-45. The asking price for this property was $3.5 million, and we are purchasing it for significantly less at $2.1 million. We’re buying a fixer upper, but once renovated, it will serve us well as our church continues to grow. The property sits on 5 acres and has over 32,000 square feet of building space, which is more than double the space we presently have. We see this building as a tool to help us continue to make much of Jesus in the Bay Area of Houston for years to come.
