Exciting summer improvements! By now you have seen the beautiful new stone chancel flooring. The carpet on the chancel steps was to have been installed soon, but supply chain issues have delayed the installation until August. Forthe next several months, the church sanctuary will be in a state of “becoming” as it is restored and refurbished from floor to ceiling. Starting 5/23, scaffolding will be installed in the choir loft and then that ceiling will be cleaned and painted, which should take about a week. However, the organ will not be able to be used for two weekends, and Gabe will be accompanying us on the piano. The flooring in the sanctuary will be removed, the floor will be abated, and new tile and carpet will be installed. To accomplish this, the pews will be removed, one side at a time. While the pews are gone, the ceiling in the sanctuary will be cleaned and painted. Then, work on the pew refinishing will resume.

The Hallway restroom renovation is on schedule to be completed by 6/3. Be sure to bring your friends to the first outdoor concert of the season so that you can show off the redone facilities!

The church roof will be getting some repairs to fix a leak and to repair damage done by bees.

As part of the Capital Campaign, Word of Life will be gettingtwo new restrooms, two showers and storage for reading materials. Contributions over and above those received as part of the Capital Campaign are paying for the remodeling of classrooms that will also take place this summer.

Wow!! It’s going to be a busy summer. When you see the mess and the upset, keep in mind that we hope to have everything back in place and better than before by the end of summer. Thanks to everyone for being a part of this Campaign – To God be the glory!
