“Those who were engaged in the work labored, and the repairing went forward in their hands, and they restored the house of God to its proper condition and strengthened it.” 2 Chronicles 24:13
Dear church family,
We are seeking to be worshipers, maturing in Christ. Where Christ’s community gathers for worship, then, is significant because of what happens in that space. Though our worship center is not the dwelling place of God, those who are God’s temple (1 Cor. 3:16) assemble in that room to worship and glorify God.
Our building “Refresh” plan is intended to help people see better and hear better as well as improve seating and aesthetics so that our worship is unhindered and enhanced.
The Bible frequently records the work of God’s people in restoring the place of worship. Without exception, God’s people are themselves refreshed in the process. They are filled with rejoicing and a renewed enthusiasm for the worship of almighty God. We long for the same accompanying work of God in our hearts as we make plans to refresh our building.
May the refreshing of the worship center be accompanied by a refreshing of our souls and fan into greater flame our passion for being worshipers who are maturing in Christ.
— Pastor Scott
Photos of our work in progress:
Our worship center was dedicated in 1996, and it has remained largely unchanged since then.
It has continuously served the congregation well; however, it is a matter of good stewardship to maintain and improve this wonderful space with some regularity. After 27 years, a modest change to décor and technology seems appropriate. The aim of the Refresh is not to make changes that are frivolous or extravagant, but rather to modify the space in ways that are wise, simple, economical, aesthetically pleasing and technologically modernizing.
Here are a few examples:
- Improving video projection will make images brighter and clearer.
- Improving the audio system will enhance the listening experience for everyone in the room.
- Decorating with new colors, fixtures, and furnishings will more closely align the worship center with the recently remodeled foyer.
- Providing access to the Fireside Room from the worship center will create a convenient space for Scott to meet guests after both services.
The Refresh is expected to cost approximately $400,000. We are committed to no indebtedness. Over $100,000 has already been pledged for the project’s expenses.
During renovation we will meet in the gymnasium for worship and look forward to a return to the worship center on Sunday, September 24.
