As Pastor Shinya said at last Sunday’s service, we hope our new building will be used 77/24/365. The Church has been designed with easy access for our congregation as well as community groups.
The community service room will be accessible from North Fifth street and will feature one-time, disposable numeric codes for easy entry without loaning out keys for each use. Groups may have access to the community service room only, or Atrium and restrooms as well.
There is a sink and storage cabinet in the community service room and cabinets in the Atrium which can be used for coffee and snacks before and after services. No foods or beverages will be allowed in the Sanctuary other than water.
Concrete next to the building where bike racks will soon be installed was finished on Friday.
Our construction team has been meeting weekly since the beginning of the project. We are fortunate to have such a dedicated team, and one that has kept the project moving despite hurdles along the way.

The forms are being laid for the playground. Here are initial pictures.
With the completion of the large Cross the two smaller crosses were also installed and are now lighted. The larger cross will be lit once we obtain our Temporary Certificate of Occupancy (TCO).
The glass railings are now installed on the second floor balcony overlooking the atrium.
