| Pastor's Perspective
I have just been over to the new building to check on progress. By the time you read this, it will be closer to completion, but as of today, it is looking good. Much of the day care side has been painted, floors are going in (thanks to Greg Bollenbacher and his team of volunteers), the lift from the new section into the sanctuary has been installed, hardware for the drop ceilings in the day care side is attached, much of the heating and cooling duct work is in, and much more. We are looking forward
to moving in so that we can begin dreaming of new ways to use that building for ministry to our community.
Don't forget that Bishop Julius Trimble will be with us on Sunday, April 23. He will be preaching that day and helping to dedicate
the new facilities. For that day only, the hour of wor-ship will change. The service will begin at 10:00 AM.
Following worship, we will gather in the new fellowship hall for a catered meal by Heav-enly Homestyle Catering featuring fried chicken, glazed ham, mashed potatoes and gravy, sea-soned green beans, rolls, and salad. Dessert and drinks will be provided by members of the church. Very shortly, we will begin taking reservations for that day. There will be no cost for the meal because we have had – and continue to receive – some very generous contributions for the food. I am hoping and trusting that as many of you
as possible will be able to be with us on that day, as we begin a new chapter in the life of the church.
See you in church the exciting place
