A ceremonial groundbreaking ceremony will be held on Sunday, September 11 for the new St. Matthew's Evangelical Lutheran church and apartments, planned for the intersection of Delaware Avenue and M Street. The event will be held at the lot at 222 M Street starting at 11:30am. It will be a festive occasion open to the public and will include a BBQ, along with a DJ, face painting, and other family-friendly activities.
Utility work for the project has been underway on Delaware Avenue since June. Once construction begins, it will take about two years to finish the church and apartment building, putting completion sometime in late 2018.
