This week around the church house…
If you take a peek at the top of the tower, you’ll be pleasantly surprised that you can now see just a bit! The scaffolding has begun coming down this week, and despite the rainy weather, workers were able to begin removing the scaffolding. Over the next month, we’ll enjoy watching the scaffolding come down!
Door installation is nearly finalized, with workers on site this week to finish the wiring for each door to our church’s entry system. Upon the conclusion of the wiring, the interior trim will be finished as well. The one remaining piece of transom glass on the Poplar Street back door was installed this week too.
Plaster work on the music suite ceiling continues through next week, where demolition has been completed on the large sections of ceiling that needed to come out due to sagging. Drywall patching will conclude this week, followed shortly by painting next week. We hope to be back in the space early in the week of November 11.
We anticipate that Duke Energy will return to our site next week to remove the old transformer from the breezeway area and patch that part of the back lot. Speaking of the back lot, please remember these few things as you come to the church house:
- Don’t forget that there are six concrete handicapped-accessible parking spots in the back for your use!
- Please also note that there are two entrances to the lot from Spruce Street and one from Poplar Street. The former breezeway that could function like a driveway between Building A and Buildings B & C is now primarily used as a walking space between the building and the parking lot. In order to preserve safety for everyone, please do not drive through this area. Should you need an easy spot for drop off and pick up, the two 15-minute spots on the Spruce Street-side of the building are there for your use.
- If you and your family can easily walk on the gravel, please park in the back lot and leave the street spots along Spruce and Poplar for those with mobility or stability challenges who need a flat surface. Thank you!!
And finally, as the project begins to wind down, please mark your calendars for Sunday, November 24, where we will celebrate the end of our building project with a morning of fellowship and thanksgiving! We’ll gather for a pot-luck breakfast that morning during the Bible Study hour, mark the occasion in worship, and offer our dedication to the new ramp and prayer room. Read more about this in the eBlast over the next few weeks, and make your plans now to gather with your church family that morning!
Thanks for your patience in this season of transition!
