Ferguson Family Life Center
At our 200th Anniversary Homecoming, November 11, 2012, it was announced that the Jack and Carolyn Ferguson family had extended to Hominy Baptist Church the incredible gift of over 2 million dollars to fully fund the construction of a new 14,752 square feet family life center.
The Ferguson Family Life Center includes a high school size basketball court, an exercise equipment room, a small concessions kitchen, a classroom and a meeting room. Based on the Ferguson family’s desire to lessen the long term operational expenses of the building, the Family Life Center includes a solar energy system generating enough electricity for much of the campus' needs. We see this building as a gift to our community as well, and have opened facilities at little or no cost to Candler community members.
Bob Smith III of Talley & Smith Architecture was our architect. Cresent Construction was the general contractor. Solarnomics designed the photo-voltaic panel system. Construction began in November 2013 and the building was dedicated on November 16, 2014. The first of many basketball games was played on December 18, 2014.The photo-voltaic panels came online in May 2015.
