This past Sunday was a great day of celebration in worship as we dedicated the new 2nd floor addition to our Education Building and let people tour the new facilities after each service. We are so thankful for the work of our church leadership who provided great assistance and guidance during this time of building including Jim Latham (Church Council Chair), Jim Thatcher (Church Finance Chair), John Houvenair (Building Committee Chair) and the other members of our building committee: Ann Petty, Don Anderson, Hal Swope, Mindy Standifer and Harold Perkins. We are especially thankful to Mike Hanna, our lay leader and general contractor, for the excellent work of his company Matthews-Hanna Construction and for their diligent pursuit of excellence and fiscal management.
The tours began with the new choir rehearsal suite downstairs and then headed upstairs to see all of the new classrooms there. We heard lots of great compliments about the new spaces and how well everything turned out. Glory to God!
We also unveiled the new completely refitted Early Response Team Trailer in the parking lot and folks were able to tour that and learn about this ministry after each of the services. It was a wonderful Sunday full of excitement and celebrations!
I look forward to seeing you all in worship this weekend as we continue to mark the season of Lent!
