Important note: Our general contractors, Whiting Turner, have implemented a new policy that anyone visiting the church (for any reason other than the preschool) Monday through Friday during the hours of 8:30 am and 3:30 pm must sign in with someone in the field office (in the old church office) before moving about the building or grounds.  If no one is in the office when you arrive please wait for someone to return.  At times our general contractors will be out of the office and in the field interfacing with the sub-contractors.  Thank you for your compliance!

Here’s what has happened in the last week:

  • The concrete was poured for the slab of the new entrance and the new walls are going up
  • Excavation is underway and mostly completed for the new addition on the Shaker Drive side of the building
  • The concrete steps leading out from the upstairs have been demolished
  • More trees and shrubs were removed
  • The sprinkler system in the sanctuary was completed, tested, and passed the test
  • The new bulkhead in the sanctuary (to hide the main sprinkler pipe) has been framed in
  • The lights around the perimeter of the sanctuary have been installed

Here’s what is scheduled to happen in the next week (or so):

  • The new exterior walls of fellowship hall will be drywalled in
  • The footers for the new addition will be prepped and poured
  • The holes in the sanctuary ceiling will be patched
  • The window well of the old choir robing room will be removed
  • The retaining wall next to the steps leading into fellowship hall from Shaker Drive will be removed
  • Sprinkler pipes will be installed in the hallway and rooms underneath fellowship hall
