Pews, Paint, and Parking!

Posted by Deacon Christine Yucha on

Construction activity has finally reached the sanctuary. New textured vinyl and carpet are down on the floors, and only a last few details remain to be painted. Our refinished pews have also been installed, and they look gorgeous! Reupholstered cushions have not been installed yet, so it will be...

Past the temporary stage

Posted by Deacon Christine Yucha on

The Day Care is officially settling into their new rooms in the lower level. Their move this weekend prompted two major things to get underway- new floors in the sanctuary and demolition of the walls in the Cafe and Lounges in the North Wing! Construction crews wasted no time in dismantling the...

25 (and counting!)

Posted by Deacon Christine Yucha on

Can you believe that this is our 25th week of construction?! WOW. The construction crew has been working hard to finalize the Day Care rooms on the lower level so they relocate to their brand new space later this week. If you are available to help, please contact Karen Egan. Their...

Soon and very soon

Oooooooh can you feel it?! We're getting close to completion... but are not quite there yet!

On the move

Posted by Deacon Christine Yucha on

Drive by the church and you'll see lots of progress from the past week. Our new trash enclosure will keep recycling and garbage dumpsters tucked away from view but still easily accessible for everyday use. Curbs continue to be poured for the front parking lot. Inside, walls in the Day Care and...

New Enclosures

We reached a major milestone this week- walls are going up for our new East Entrance! A separate enclosure for our trash and recycling bins is also rapidly being erected with concrete block, followed by brick. Masons are also patching and filling in other areas on the exterior of our existing...

Take a Walk

Posted by Deacon Christine Yucha on

Are you ready to take a walk? This week, we're one "step" closer to being able to walk around the entire church building safely, thanks to our newly poured sidewalks. Drywall is rapidly going up on the interior of the building, and one of the last demolition projects is underway- cutting new...
