Christ Lutheran Church at 3612 Old Oakwood Road will be able to move forward with construction plans, including a new sanctuary.
The church, which is off Mundy Mill Road, was given Oakwood City Council’s OK Monday night to reduce a setback requirement, enabling the project.
“Like most churches, including the one I attend, you do a long-range plan and you work out the phases of construction and then, as the money comes in, you build in phases,” said B.R. White, Oakwood’s community development director, during the Dec. 10 meeting.
The new sanctuary is the third phase of Christ Lutheran’s plans.
“We’re ready to move forward,” church member Alan Overcash told the council. “Obviously, we want to get it built yesterday.”
