Balancing Act

During a recent worship service, one of our ministers, Abigail Johnson, reminded us how important it is to have balance in our lives - especially when the going gets tough.

For some folks in our congregration, it would be safe to say that the renovation of our church building and our temporary move to St. Aidan's has been tough.

But if we stop and pay attention to the progress of the renovation so far, we can't help but get excited about our new church home.

Here are the highlights of recent work on the building, along with some great pictures:

  1. Work on the foundation is complete
  2. Drywall is going up - rooms will start taking shape in the next few weeks
  3. The windows are being framed
  4. Work on the roof is underway
  5. Almost all of the structural steel has been installed
Aug 14: Trusses underway for 2nd floor and subfloor plywood being placed

This is where the future staircase will come up from ground level.
