A Word from Pastor Anne
Many of you have seen parts of the new Ministry Center. So much has been done this past month! It is very exciting!
We passed several inspections at the end of April and beginning of May! Sheetrock and taping is happening throughout the building. Painting and texturing inside and outside may be done before you get this. The elevator is installed and passed inspection. The retaining wall was built, an irrigation line was replaced and sidewalk is in the future playground area. The drop ceiling is installed with lighting. Flooring and doors are installed. Bathroom plumbing and kitchen cabinets and counters are being completed. Sliding walls are coming.
Additional work is required by our inspectors to increase the Great Hall fire rating and meet the Building code. We expect to finalize plans with the City in order to proceed with this final portion of our construction. This will be an additional unexpected cost that we expect to take care of when needed.
We still expect to have a soft opening in the summer with a dinner dance, open house and other activities.
Please save Sunday, September 20th when Bishop Brown is coming for our building dedication. Join as we have a great and much anticipated celebration!
The Virginia Maniti Williams Ministry Center is our shared legacy. This is happening on our watch. And the even greater legacy will be the people who come to know and become fruitful followers of Jesus-building God’s Kingdom and blessing others in the name of Jesus.
Please continue to pray for guidance, safety and trust in God. We are getting ever closer to completion of this part of where God is leading! Furnishings will come next.
What a great year this is as we finish the 50th anniversary of our church and 20 years here at our present location. And there is so much more yet to come!
God’s Holy Spirit is mighty!
