Three years ago the church voted to do a renovation of a section of the Youth Suite. Over that time period several meetings were held to identify the kind of space our youth ministry needed. As we went into the church year the Youth Committee engaged the Properties Committee to complete the project. Over the course of the time we have been away from our facility, the Properties Committee vetted potential contractors, and selected one that provided both dependability and affordability. The contractor removed two walls to make three rooms one larger one. They also repaired the walls, painted them, and laid new flooring. The Properties Committee asked Ann Bailey, our church decorator, to help create the best layout and to select the furnishings. The final pieces came in and were set in place last week. Today we celebrate that a dream three years in the making has been realized. This will be an ideal space to spur a sense of community and to empower small group conversations among our youth. It will be a great tool for our youth ministry when we return to our ministry in our facility. Thank you to all that were involved in completing this significant project. Well done!
