Fallin Announces Camp Gruber Chapel Project

From The Governor's Office ~ Governor Fallin announced a project today to construct a chapel at Camp Gruber, with the groundbreaking taking place next month.

The project, which has received strong support from Oklahoma citizens, businesses and state leaders, will establish a chapel for the camp, which currently does not have a spiritual center.

The chapel will feature a sanctuary and facilities to accommodate services for approximately 200 soldiers, as well as offices for clergy and counseling and areas to conduct seminars, Bible studies and other gatherings.

Construction of the project is expected to be completed in approximately six months, with a target goal of completion for Spring 2012, when Oklahoma soldiers return from Afghanistan.
