RENOVATIONS AND CHURCH PROPERTY UPDATE
Upgrades and renovations to our building continue.
Due to the generosity of both our volunteer labor force and the generosity of this community, we continue the work that has been completed in the Sunday School wing.
The oldest part of our building is in need of maintenance and appearance upgrades.
So far, we have enhanced the lighting in the A-Frame and are dealing with plumbing issues in the bathrooms and plans are underway to address the flooring.
Work has also begun on the Sacristy which will be painted and receive new flooring.
The carpet in the connector has been ripped out and we have begun staining the concrete slab.
Most of this work is being done by volunteers which makes your donations go a long way.
Any donations made to the building funds go a long way to help maintain our property which helps us to fulfill the mission of being an Oasis of Grace to our community.
We will have a project cost soon for work that is going to be done in our older sanctuary which will be used as another worship, classroom and community space which will enhance our ministry.
