Church Work Day...
Thanks to Dave and Micah Bailey, Dan Bailey, Antoine Ray, Dallas Dyer, Evan Davis, Torrance Bagunu, Mike Karlin, Adam Summers, Abram, and Dr. Fel (hopefully we didn't miss anyone!) More sheetrock was removed from the building. Other demo and cleaning was done as well. This saved the church money by doing much of the cleanup internally! So thank you all!

This afternoon, several students and members came and joined our staff as we cleared out several of the final contents and objects left inside the main building. Both offices were stored and moved, as well as many other miscellaneous items. The building is now primarily empty and ready for further renovations to begin as the needed.
This coming week will be the final week our pastors and staff will work primarily from our property. Office hours will remain the same and the church phone and emails will be open for all contact. Staff will work remotely but at times may be on the church grounds for various tasks.

In early October, the building Committee decided to start the demolition of several walls in our building and the drop ceiling per the designs of our architect. This action allowed for us to have a better understanding of the building's current state and design.
This past week, several members and pastors were at the property working. Two walls were removed as was the entire drop ceiling grid and tiles. The building is currently being prepared for further tasks such as insulation and fire suppression.
Pictures of the progress are included below.
