Prayer Update: Faith and Liberty Discovery Center
Your prayers are needed as we move towards our grand opening in 2021
Thank you for praying for the Faith and Liberty Discovery Center. Because of your prayers, we were able to break ground in November 2018 for the newest attraction coming to Philadelphia’s Independence Mall.
We continue to believe God for the opening of the Faith and Liberty Discovery Center, a 51,000 square-foot immersive experience. The Faith and Liberty Discovery Center will invite more than 250,000 visitors per year to discover how the Bible shaped America and how it still provides wisdom and guidance for us today.
Final Push Before Opening Doors
We were very excited for the building phase of the Faith and Liberty Discovery Center. The entrance and lobby were being built. The galleries and exhibits being fabricated and readied for installation.
Then Covid-19 hit.
Like much of the world, the Faith and Liberty Discovery Center was shutdown. Construction was halted for weeks. While we knew that was the right thing to ensure the safety and protection of others, we also knew this could have a big impact on the anticipated opening of the Faith and Liberty Discovery Center.
Thankfully, work has since resumed, and work crews are back at it.
But we still need your prayers. We need your prayers for God’s continued help as we build this one-of-a-kind experience. Our hope is that people of all backgrounds will have a chance to explore how faith and the Bible played an integral role in the founding of America and how the Bible can still be relevant today. Will you pray with us?
- Favor. Ask God to strengthen and help all those involved in the building and promoting of the Faith and Liberty Discovery Center so that doors open in 2021 without any delays or setbacks.
- Funds. Pray for generous financial contributions as we still need to raise six million dollars.
- Wisdom. Pray for the wisdom needed to operate the Faith and Liberty Discovery Center in a post-pandemic world.
