Celebrate/Build – February 2016

Well on our way!

On Sunday, February 21st just after an afternoon workshop, the Congregation Council and staff walked through the new Learning Center. Metal studs framed the classrooms, breaker boxes are mounted. LOTS of insulation covers the roof with even more on the way. Duct work runs from one end to the other. Between worship times on that morning, the whole congregation wrote prayers and passages on sheet rock that will be mounted in the interior very soon.

Once the good folk of Reno Building were turned loose by the City of Largo late November, the construction effort took off. In a meeting with the City we were able to obtain some concessions for the numbers of bicycle racks and some landscaping required. Regardless, we still are being required to do much more to our campus that originally thought. Still, though, we are excited about what is coming.

Capital Appeal Update

What blessings God gives! While we do not yet have a completion date, we are excited to see the progress and look forward to that time. As soon as we have a date, we will publicize a time of gathering for dedication. Let us continue in our prayers for workers’ safety, for wisdom in our decision-making at each step of the way and for discernment of God’s guiding Spirit in all things – that ALL we do, be to the glory of God.

Thanks be to God for all of the gifts that have been making this work happen! Many of us have completed our pledges.

Some of us are still giving each week and month and will continue for some time. Each gift allows us to meet and even to exceed our goal, and so lower our costs in the future. Thank you.
