We had a bit of a problem last week with getting our electrical service moved so the builders can build on to the back of the sanctuary. I won’t go into the gory details, but it involved getting approval from APS and a waiver from the city, which at first didn’t look like it was going to happen. Thanks to Carl Taylor, who got us the waiver and got us back on track!
The big event happening this week is the work on the front door. We didn’t expect this to happen this soon, but we have the side door entrance (off the alley) ready to go. The contractor has told us it will take about two weeks to finish the front door. They will have to remove the concrete and put in a footing under the new door, to fix the issue we have every year with the doors sagging and not closing properly (there is no footing under the front door).
We are still having Sunday services, the Congregational meeting, and potluck during this disruption! The side door will serve as our front door, and the back door can still be used as an emergency exit.
If you need to check out a key to the building (to the side and back doors), please see Dennis Spurlin this Sunday at church, or stop by the office Tuesday through Thursday 10 to 3.
If you need to schedule a meeting or use of the building during the next couple of months, please check with Carl Taylor or myself to be sure that the construction won’t interfere with your plans.
I believe the next couple of weeks will be the most inconvenient of the project, with the front door closed off. After that, things should be fairly easy throughout the rest of the summer, with a couple of Sunday services held off-site during drywall and painting.
Looking forward to having our new doors!
