We’re Getting Excited!

This past couple weeks have been filled with lots of demo! Here’s what has been happening…

  • Most of the balcony has been removed making space for where the new stage will be going.
  • Our children’s wing is almost completely demolished and framing will be starting soon.
  • The front awning has been removed.
  • The elevator shaft demo started this past week.
  • Soon, our new roof will be put on, and pressure washing and sealing of the exterior brick will be happening.

Also, in case you missed our panel interview (7-29-18) for Phase One of our Downtown Project, be sure to check it out below…

Thank you to everyone who has been praying for and giving faithfully to this project. We can hardly wait to have a place to call home, and each week brings us closer!

As always, if you have any questions about our Downtown Project you can contact Pastor Tom Lovelace at toml@kessidchurch.com.

Demo is in Full Swing!

Process Update:
Extensive demo has begun! We are incredibly excited to be starting renovations! Our contractor is on site along with fencing, fork lifts, dumpsters and other various construction equipment. Our General Contractor has given us a projected move in date of December 20th!

Prayer Request:
We planned to keep working from the church during the remodel, but we learned, unexpectedly, on Thursday that due to all new electrical being put into the building that the power will need to be shut off for 3-4 months. Our staff will be relocating as of next Wednesday. We will inform everyone of our temporary office address in the next few weeks. Please be praying as we make this rapid move!

This Sunday 7-29-18:
If you’d like to learn more about everything included in Phase 1 of our Project, please join us as Pastor Tom Lovelace, Pastor Danny Clinton, and our General Contractor, Bob Andrews discuss details at our Sunday Services on July 29th. (Services are 9 & 11am in the Gaiser Student Center at Clark College.)
