Church Remodeling Project

On March 6, 2019, our church building suffered substantial damage. Due to extreme cold, the sewer line from the building froze up. During attempts to thaw the frozen pipe, our wastewater lift station thawed enough to unexpectedly power up. The result of the wastewater being pumped into the blockage was that sewer water backed up through the bathrooms and flooded our facility. The damage was extensive:
  • Both bathrooms
  • Children's church classrooms
  • Nursery
  • Kitchen
  • Offices
  • Main auditorium
Our church hired a professional restoration company to come in and completely sanitize the facility. All areas affected by the wastewater were completely sanitized and biowashed for safety. I am happy to report that the cleanup is now 100% complete!

The next step is to repair the facility. A substantial amount of drywall had to be torn out and replaced. We have already replaced all of the drywall. Next up will be taping and mudding to be followed by priming and painting. Once that work is complete, we can have new flooring installed. 

Last Sunday (March 24), we were able to have services in our facility once more! Our goal for this week is to have the kitchen and fellowship hall operational by Sunday. Thank you for your patience and understanding during our "involuntary remodel." :-)
