Jesus taught, “you cannot put new wine into old wineskins…” New wine needs new wineskins, renewed joy needs renewed vessels.
Building Renewal Update
December 1, 2017
You can see a time lapsed video of the demolition of the south commons, parish house and education building from October 2 through November 15.
- The weather has been a blessing for the Building Renewal Project. This week the work continues with more concrete pouring for the lower level walls. The work now begins on the footings for the first-floor walls. It is such a moment of gratitude as we move from destruction to the construction of the new, mission-forward facility.
- Limestone pieces from the parish house are still available. The limestone is in front of the church (just off the north plaza) inside the chain link fence garbage area.
- Restrooms. Ushers and staff can direct you to the added portable toilet, the lower narthex restrooms (which are not handicap accessible) or the joyous outdoor portable toilets.
- Update meeting for the congregation. In January, the Building Renewal Project Team and the Congregation Council will hold an update meeting for the congregation. These will be short, informational meetings offered after each worship service. We will review the status of the project, the loan and mortgage numbers, revised timeline and initial “looks” at the plans for the interior. The date has not yet been set, watch this column for the date and time.
All the other details that have been shared over the past weeks continue along as planned. If you missed some of the communications, previous copies of the Spirit are archived on the website.
