July 1, 2018
The Carpet has been replaced in the Sacristy and Sanctuary and vinyl plank flooring in the Nave. The old steps leading to the Sacristy were replaced with new, wider ones. All of the pews were cleaned, polished and installed. They were rearranged to allow for wheelchair access at the ends of two pews and easier access for those who use walkers, canes or any special need. The baptismal font and eagle podium were placed. Touch up painting was done. The Sacristy was thoroughly cleaned. A final cleaning of the church will be done prior to our July 1st service. This week, our organ will be serviced and tuned.
So, the flooring is in and tomorrow, June 18, the pews come back to the church. If you are able to come and help us clean them before they go back into the church, please come! We start at 9:30am. Coffee and treats will be on hand. We need fuel for cleaning!
The wiring for the new speakers and interior painting is complete. The plaques were cleaned, polished and reinstalled.
As we heard on Sunday – there has been more asbestos found in the church building – so no one except the contractors for that removal are allowed in the building until further notice. As soon as we get the “all clear” we will let you know
Please continue to pray for the completion of all these projects and for the funds to be made available to accomplish all that is needed.
Thank you for your continued cooperation as we face this ongoing battle!
Worship continues in the Parish Hall, Sunday mornings at 9:00 am.
Repair & Restoration Update: So as you can see by the photo, good things are happening but in the midst of the good things we discovered more asbestos. See that pink stuff on the stairs and in the chancel/sanctuary? Asbestos. This means another 2 week wait until it is removed and the church deemed clear of the asbestos dust. At that point we will be able to see what is underneath it and determine if we need more restoration work before having the carpet laid. Then, Mike from MB Millwork will move in and prep the nave floor for the tile installation. Little by little step by step the Lord is leading this repair and restoration of our beautiful little church here in Lake George. May He grant us the patience and fortitude to trust Him all along the way!Our restoration and repairs continue. Painters should finish Tuesday and Plumbers on Wednesday. Then, we move on to repairs in the subfloor followed by installation of the vinyl planks. In the meantime, the plaques will be cleaned and reinstalled.
Just after wishing you all a Happy New Year, we discovered the pipes had burst in the church. Hmmm. Every single radiator now needs replacing. Hmmm again. Thankfully God put in place leadership who are more than able to tend to this challenge. Phyllis Foster and Susan Joseph are doing a wonderful job and yesterday at worship (yes! we still had worship but in the Parish Hall) Scott Cudney saw this challenge as a blessing. Here is a time for us to come together and work together and face this time together with thankfulness to God. The first thing to do is to keep gathering for worship and then he asked us to come up with ideas for paying the $1,000 deductible as it was definitely not in the budget. Pray about it and let us know your ideas! Until then stay warm and give thanks.
