Over the last few months, we have explored facets of our church status, and growth, that tie into our renovation explorations. We've gathered insights and opinions. We have researched costs, vendors, and timelines. We have discussed our goals for our church's programs, and we have envisioned possible futures. We are eager, and grateful, that God has given us the opportunity to refresh our campus to make our space more welcoming and attractive. 

This page proposes a consensus that makes wise use of resources, available gifts and talent, and encourages growth through beautification of our sanctuary. 

We will install new low-pile industrial carpeting (instead of a wooden, or tile floor), and ensure that the flooring has (decorative) markers to help us place seating where it should be.
We will retain the existing stained glass. We will emphasize the stained glass windows' arched top design by patching in a drywall “arch”.
We leave the cement block behind the cross “as is.” We will apply wooden trim and wall paint to make a background to help emphasize the altar, ambo, and font.
We will continue to use printed bulletins to guide worship, because we will NOT make arrangements for high-tech projection installations.
We leave the trimber-framing beams as is (we do not paint or refinish as seen in “5000” and “16-60” concepts). We may add an ornament to the termini of the beams where they meet the walls; and a local artisan may subtly paint Bible passages on the beams.

We can hang large panes of colored glass in front of the existing side windows featuring biblical scenes and symbols on colored glass. In between the windows, we can also make smaller circular artworks for the liturgical year.
We can have a local artist member of the church paint an altarpiece.
Custom chancel furniture will be designed and built by a woodworking member of the church.
We can build custom “welcome area” shelves and announcement area in the entryway, but won't adjust the walls that define the restroom, or “A/V” room.
To make the "cafe" entrance more welcoming, we will replace the solid steel door on the lower level, (and the solid steel door on the upper level) with doors that have windows.
We have purchased new seating for our lower-level gathering area that is inclusive of and accessible for all persons.
