Draft Renovation Plan for 2013 and Beyond

Continuing Renovation

It’s truly heartwarming to walk around our Center and see the amazing amount of beauty and improvements that we’ve completed over the past few years. While we’re still catching up on some long-time deferred maintenance, your ideas, love, talents, time, energy, and donations are transforming our spiritual home.

We have drafted a plan for 2013. We think this is a great plan, and we have learned that we need to be flexible and open to the next-right-idea. 

Bookstore flooring
Will need crew to empty & restock bookstore
Renovate kitchen & plumbing
Team has started planning
Tree removal / trimming
Landscaping Team project
Facility office floor
Need champions for this project
Sliding wall in rooms 1&2

Sound/electrical improvements

Contingency for surprises & new ideas
     Goal for 2013

As you’ll notice, we need “champions” for some of the projects – a leader and a team to research, manage, and execute the projecst. If you are interested in helping, talk with Evan Dow-Williamson, our Facility Manager.

Keeping us in line!

Brooke Chestnut is keeping those dust bunnies in line around our Sanctuary! This Young Adult boldly breezes by in her work as she keeps our Center clean and tidy! Brooke volunteers at our Center as well as working at the Golden Bridge. Thank you Brooke for your work, your passion, and your smile.

This fiery fountain of energy!

Mary Munat happily helping clean our foyer. I met Mary for the first time yesterday as she walked into my office with a sunny disposition and excited to do whatever was needed to keep our Center looking it's best. From bathrooms to floors there is no task too dirty, or too hard for this fiery fountain of energy! Thank you Mary for all that you are!
