Widening Our Welcome
A significant event was the church's mission to "Widen Our Welcome" through a capital campaign and renovation to make the building accessible to all, completed in the summer of 2017. This was a long, arduous process that required the financial and spiritual commitment of our congregation. We now have a spacious front entry that opens to the minister's office, previously housed upstairs over the chapel area. Stairs lead down to our Sunday school rooms, conference room, supply room, Thrift Shop, and two renovated gender-neutral bathrooms. The upstairs leads to the office administrator's space, a long hallway allowing for seating and bulletin board display, a gender-neutral bathroom, the upper hall where we share coffee hour together and provide space for community gatherings, and of course, our beautiful sanctuary. The main intent of our renovation was to make our building accessible to all, with the inclusion of an elevator.
