We are excited to announce the renovation to the worship center. The renovation in the worship center will include upgrades to the projection system, house and stage lighting, and aesthetic improvements including paint and carpet. These improvements will allow for greater creativity and excellence in our weekly services. Since our projectors are past their expected life-cycles, the new projection system with one screen will create a single point of focus. It will be brighter and clearer making it easier to read lyrics and scripture. The pews are being replaced by interlocking cushioned chairs that form a single pew-style row of seats and have a place for communion cups, envelopes, pens, and Bibles. Leaving the pews in place or storing them in climate-controlled storage would have added to the time and cost of the project. Chairs are expected to increase seating efficiency by reducing the amount of space left between parties in a row. The pews will be appreciated in their new church home.


It is our desire to engage people in worship to see Jesus face to face. I can’t wait to use these resources to continue to lead people to see Jesus face to face. — John Bell, Worship Minister
