Nazarene fellowship hall construction begins

Victoria First Church of the Nazarene, 1105 Edinburgh St., has started construction of a new addition to its main church building, which will be used as a fellowship hall and for special church events.

Dr. Charles Bearinger, a representative of the South Texas District of the Church of the Nazarene, blessed the ribbon-cutting ceremony with a prayer. The first shovel of dirt was excavated by board secretary Jason Itz.

The new addition is expected to be completed by the end of July.
