As Melissa and I consider all that has taken place over the past year, our hearts are full of gratitude for what the Lord has done. 2017 has definitely been a special year for our family and for our local church! We are seeing God’s favor, restoration, and increase in amazing ways and we are grateful for the special season that our church is in right now. We believe that this is an exciting time for all of us to go beyond our boundaries!
We want to give you a quick update on how things are moving along with the building project. As some of you know, there was quite a bit of demolition work needed to be done on the inside of the building before any kind of construction could take place. I’m excited to report that all of the interior demo work is now complete! You can see how the inside of the building looks now in the December update video below. Getting that work out of the way was a big step towards our interior renovation goals. We are continuing to meet with city officials, engineers and our architect to fine tune our building plans and we hope to have more information soon regarding a possible timeline for the renovation. We look forward to sharing those details with you once we have them!
We also want to be sure to say a special THANK YOU to all of you who have given and continue to give towards this project. So far, 33% of our project costs have been paid for! God’s grace and your gifts are enabling us to take this step in order for our church to make a greater impact. Thank you for helping us take the message of Jesus to this region and beyond. We love you and we appreciate you. Together, we are taking the land and going far beyond our boundaries!
