With the recent completion of the workshop/bus parking, the P.E.T. Project has been able to move their equipment into the new space. Demolition has now begun on the areas of the Sanctuary building that will be renovated! Although you may not be able to see the physical work happening, there is much activity going on inside the building!
As you can see from the photos below, much of the original brick was exposed during the demolition. The photos show Promiseland and the Youth Room.
On August 10th, the congregation was given a presentation (after the first Wednesday dinner of the season about the process and completion of the Workshop and bus parking. Below is the slideshow that was presented. It’s a great representation of all the hard, volunteer work that was put into making this project successful!
Volunteers from Memorial and from around the community have been making great progress on the MUMC workshop and bus shed!
All the interior walls & ceiling are installed and the 1×4 crown molding is almost complete. Door casings on the interior are half way complete while spackling is well under way on interior walls.
This week, the siding materials will arrive and the molding will be complete.The interior walls will be painted a light gray.
Thanks to all our amazing volunteers, we are moving right along on the workshop.
If You Missed it, Join the Virtual Prayer Walk!
On April 24th, after the 11:00AM Worship Service, the Growing in Grace Connections Group organized a Prayer Walk around the Church Campus. Members of the church family started in the Sanctuary and walked around the campus, stopping in each room that would be affected by the Sanctuary closing in May. They said prayers together and personal prayers for the room, the construction workers, the people that would be using it and for our church.
If you would like to virtually walk through the church and participate in these prayers, click HERE to open our MUMC Virtual Prayer Walk.
The One Worship service at 10:00AM on Shrimp Fest Sunday (May 1st) will be the last service in the Sanctuary. The following week, the 8:00AM service will be at Trinity United Methodist Church, while the 9:30AM and 11:00AM services will be in Maxwell Hall.
