Albany- The Harvest Temple Church of God broke ground on their new complex Sunday. The first 15 shovels of dirt were turned over for the new Harvest Temple Church of God along Fussell Road.

The 20 acre site was purchased last November. Site work will start as early as Monday, but it will be a year before the first building is complete. The new facilities will allow the church to offer much more to the community.

"We're going to have a school here. We're going to have Christian education here. We're going to have senior adult ministries here, where we actually have day care for senior adults, and hopefully long term maybe even looking at assisted care living center for adults," said Phil Pearson, Harvest Temple Church of God Sr. Pastor.

The entire project is expected to take 15 years to complete. The Harvest Temple Church of God has over 400 members.
