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.
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.
Next time you walk up the front steps of the church into the sanctuary, you’ll have brand new railings to hold on to! The first part of the new railings were installed before Christmas Eve. On Thursday, workers were installing the second half of the railing! They look great and are a wonderful and SAFE addition to our front steps
You may have noticed that the camels were moved from the left side of the Sanctuary this week. (they visited Baby Jesus a little early!)
It was so grading, irrigation and landscaping could be done in that area. You can see the “before” shot above. If you were not able to see the “after” on Christmas Eve, here are a few shots of the amazing work that was done!
Just a quick view of the masons tuck pointing the new mortar on the Sanctuary exterior.
