The History

In 1993, Apostolic Truth Church purchased a parcel of land located on French Rd. ATC's founding pastor, Michael J Schmalz, was privileged to name the new road adjacent to the property - Glory Lane. After approximately 3 decades, our ATC congregation is ready to transform the acreage into a beautiful campus that will be complementary to the attractive neighborhoods in the surrounding area. 

We've designed our new church home with our new neighbors in mind. Of course, we'd love for anyone in the area looking for a new church home to check us out. Regardless of your church affiliation, we will have designed spaces throughout the building which will be available for all of our neighbors. 

Construction updates

May 29, 2024

We're thrilled to bring some updates to you. Keep an eye on this page over the next few months as we bring more updates to you! 

On May 15th, ATC voted to move forward with our building project, so it's officially happening! We are happy to announce that we have selected Catalyst Construction as our construction partner. Our design and architectural partner is Excel Engineering. These companies have been a joy to work with and we're looking forward to starting this exciting season of our church with them as partners.

Our groundbreaking service & ceremony will be taking place on June 9th, and we've love for you to be there with us! Our service will take place at Appleton North High School at 10:00am and our ceremony will take place on our Glory Lane property at 11:30am.

There isn't a set date on construction to begin, but we anticipate that to be sometime in June! If you have any questions about our project, please feel free to call us at (920) 738-7800 or email!

our community

ATC plans to build a state-of-the-art church facility, where every age demographic, from infants to seniors, has been considered and will be provided space for worship and fellowship. Our new church home is intended to be used not only by our congregation but also by our neighbors and our community. Here are a few spaces designed with our community in mind:

1. The Atrium: Our Wi-Fi-outfitted atrium will be a place to grab a cup of coffee, sit in one of our comfortable spaces to read, study, catch up on work, or meet a friend or client.

2. The Community Room: We have a 1,100-square-foot room outfitted with counter space and a refrigerator perfect for a birthday party, graduation party, or community meeting. 

3. The Indoor Child Play Area: Sometimes our kids need a place to play, especially in the winter. We will have designated hours for children to burn off some energy in a fabulous kid-friendly area. 

4. The Cafe: We plan to have hours available throughout the week to grab a coffee or a latte! 

Frequently Asked Questions

When will construction begin/be completed?

The construction project will begin June, 2024.

Our goal would be to finish by the end of 2025.

Will there be traffic problems?

There will be a few times during the week (Sundays at 10:00am, Wednesdays at 7:00pm) when there will be a higher volume of traffic flow in the area. Our current plan has entrances on Glory Lane and Ashbury Drive, closer to French Road. The two entrances will distribute the flow of traffic primarily to French Road and not through the adjoining neighborhoods. Traffic will be minimal for most of the week. 

Will parking lot lights be problematic? 

We intend to invest in a parking lot light system designed to minimize light spill. We will also incorporate landscape buffers as needed.

Where do I address any other concerns?

We'd love to hear from you! If you have any questions, comments, or concerns during our construction phase, feel free to email, or call our front office at (920) 738-7800.
