Work is progressing on the renovation we’ve been planning for some time, you could say March 8 was the “End of the Beginning”. Westport Construction is now in the building and beginning to disassemble the structure to make way for our renovation. While it looks like a lot is happening, you haven’t seen anything yet! Here’s just a few snaps of the work in progress…
Before and after shots of the office and the kitchen!
Exciting times ahead! In preparation of the beginning of our renovation project we will be disassembling and moving all of the spaces on the first floor from the Green Room steps south. March 8 will be our last Sunday to fellowship in the gym or use the east and west doors as an entrance to the building until we are complete with the renovation later this year. Prior to the contractors getting out the hammers we need to relocate our main office as well as all of the furniture and fixtures that occupy those spaces, we’re hoping a few of you can set aside some time to help!
At noon on March 8 we’ll have a light lunch in the gym then roll up our sleeves and start packing up and relocating items to the gym for storage during the renovation. We can use hands, boxes and packing materials as we’ll be emptying all cupboards and drawers, taking down artwork as well as moving all the furniture. During construction our office staff will temporarily relocate to the rental house we own at 602 S 3rd street – right behind the playground out our back door!
Since we’re retrofitting the house for our “office” we can use a little help getting it ready before or during the week of March 2nd – wiping down surfaces, painting a few walls, and helping get furniture and equipment moved over. If you’ve got a little time and some muscles please call Kathy at the church office at 660-885-5597 and we’ll coordinate a time for you to help us get them settled in.
It'll all move pretty fast after that – we’ll give weekly updates and post photos of the transformation. Thanks to all who have worked hard to bring this evolution of our ministry to life!
