Cornerstone chapel construction continues

Large trusses are put into place during construction of Cornerstone University's new chapel (May 6, 2014).

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — As large trusses are being put into place on Cornerstone University’s new chapel, contractors say the construction is on schedule.

Over the past two days, construction crews have been hoisting the large trusses in place on the structure. Each one weighs around 60,000 lbs.

The building will be called “Christ’s Chapel”. The total project cost is $15 million; all paid for through private donations.

“Cornerstone University, [thoughout] its existence, has always been without a formal chapel building. We’ve had it in different locations around campus over the last few decades. So it will serve most notably as a chapel, but also serve as an ancillary music education facility,” spokesperson Bob Sack said.

The chapel is scheduled to open in the fall of 2015.
