B & G Update: August 2, 2015

Buildings and Grounds Update

Our church facelift begins this week!  Highlights of what is in store:

  • Ceiling  dark trusses will remain, spaces in between painted to lighten and brighten our worship
  • Walls  paneling above the side windows removed, all walls painted to further lighten and brighten
  • Pews  scratches sanded out of the seats followed by modest refinishing
  • Floors  wood floors sanded and refinished, new carpeting
  • Lighting  all new switches/dimmers (that work!), LED bulbs for crisper light and energy efficiency, and exterior illumination of the rose window for nighttime services!
  • Narthex  no structural changes, but the narthex will become brighter, “larger” and more welcoming!

As was mentioned last week, it is good to leave much of this work to professionals, but there is work that each of us can contribute.

Please plan to come back to church at 2:00 this afternoon to help transform the parish hall into a worship space and prepare the church for its “facelift”!  MANY HANDS MAKE LIGHT WORK!
