Building Project Update
Financial First, we are thankful to God and to our generous congregation for providing the necessary funds to complete the project. We have met and exceeded our goal. We are thankful that we can expect to have a balance in our building fund when this project is complete. Although we will have been able to remodel almost the entire church building over the past years and have been able to keep both the building roof and parking lot in good condition, we know that some time down the road both of those areas will require significant upgrades which will be costly. The extra funds donated for this project will help establish a fund for future trustees to tap into when these upgrades are needed.
Anticipated Dates - We have made deposits on the carpet, benches and panels and have received estimates for both the time they will be available and the time it will take for installation. Although we know these are subject to supply chain disruptions, none are anticipated at this time, and we are planning on this being a six-week project. We have included an extra week in our schedule. The time frame is primarily controlled by the delivery of the benches, and we are told that they will be available by June 20th . Based on that date, our beginning date for demolition would be Thursday, May 12th and our anticipated completion date would be Wednesday, June 29th. If we can stick to that date, we would have cleaning days on Wednesday and Thursday, June 29th and 30th and our first service in the renovated church would be on Sunday, July 3rd. We will keep the church updated if there are any adjustments to these anticipated dates.
Additional Information - If anyone would like to have one of the current benches please contact Brother Steve Pfister and he will reserve it for you. Please continue to pray for God’s direction on this project and for safety for all those involved in the renovation. Once again, THANK YOU for your generous support – we look forward to working with all of you to complete this project and thank our Lord for his continuing bountiful provision.
