The Heritage Center
The Heritage Center began in January of 2008 with a vision from Pastor Ken Schoonover to “take care” of the seniors. This vision stemmed from Exodus 6:8 “And I will bring you to the land which I swore to give to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; and I will give it to you as a heritage: I am the LORD.” (NKJV) Over a period of time Pastor Ken had watched a decline in the senior’s financial structure, which left many senior citizens forced to choose between paying their electric bill and buying their medicine. He felt the Church had a responsibility to its seniors, so he started putting on paper the vision God had planted within him. In February 2008 construction began on what is now known as The Heritage Center.
It was Pastor Ken’s desire that this ministry would be known and seen as a heritage “inheritance” for our senior generation. How could one build a facility to house those who had gone before us and paved the road to our future? Through his compassion The Heritage Center began providing good, clean, safe housing units on June 15, 2008. Our first construction project provided us with 2 senior apartments, including all utilities and appliances such as: a stove, refrigerator, dish washer, washer and dryer. Our maintenance department oversees all facility repairs including lawn care & snow removal. Over time we have seen a continual desire in those who wish to spend their retirement years on the Heritage Center property. What has become known as T.H.C. is just a portion of the vision God desires in this community, with expansion in the near future.
