Building Update: Worship Begins in Renovated Sanctuary October 28!

The contractor, Cloverleaf, has mostly finished with the renovation and expansion project on our building.  There are a few remaining loose ends that need to be completed on their punch list.

On October 28th, we will hold our first service in the newly renovated Sanctuary!  The contractor still has to finish programming the sanctuary lighting controls.  Our volunteers are installing the Audio Visual equipment and addressing the acoustical challenges in the new space.  We will continue using a mixture of chairs for the next couple of months until our new sanctuary chairs arrive.

The new parking lot off Cheatham Road is finished and available for parking. You can come down the walkway to the new side door facing Timothy Road.  All of the lights on the walkway should be installed in the next week or two.

Additional spaces have been paved in the old parking lot. There are six ADA accessible spots, two at the end of the RE wing and four on the side next to Timothy Road.  There are a number of new spaces marked with the letter “C” — these are for compact vehicles.  Refurbishing of the old parking lot will be completed in the next few weeks.

The new front doors are usable, but they still have some operational glitches which the contractor hopes to fix in the next couple of weeks.

New furniture for the offices will be delivered and set up Monday October 15.  The new chairs for the Fellowship Hall will arrive mid-November.

Work on the landscape, especially around the new patio off the Fellowship Hall, continues.

There will be an all-Fellowship work day on Saturday, October 27. Your help is needed both inside and outside the building, particularly to help us be ready the following day to hold the service in the Sanctuary and to enjoy the special Hungarian Thanksgiving lunch in the Fellowship Hall after the service.

The EOV Building Project Committee is still actively overseeing the remaining work and additional small projects.

Your continued patience and flexibility is much appreciated!
