Some big news:

We are repainting the hallways of the first floor! The current mural on the walls has been up for over 15 years, and between a daycare and our weekend and mid-week church services, the paint is wearing. It is dirty, chipping and just in need of something fresh. I believe that repainting will allow this area to be a more welcoming place to guests and will bring rejuvenation to the children’s area. I know that there is great significance and sentimentality with the murals that are on the wall currently. To honor this and all the time and hard work put into this painting years ago, I have created a scrapbook with detailed pictures of every figure that is on the walls and an explanation of what they stand for. We are so excited for this next step in our church!
