Update On The Furture Home Of New Hope
New Church Update - April 2, 2020
Our New Church
These past few weeks have been a challenge for the construction of our new church. Peter Savard and Ron Young have been working with the insurance company (see Peter's report) on storm damage mitigation. Walt Suber had just completed painting the inside of the house on the property and installing a new hot water heater in the sanctuary when the tornado turned those buildings to matchsticks.
Our committee is still having bi-weekly meetings with the architects, working together on what our new church facilities will look like. Many of you got to see the layout at the meeting with the congregation and Steve Carroll in March.
We have made minor changes, but the general plan remains the same. The latest plans are posted on our website. These include what the front, back and each side will look like. No firm plans for the kind or color of the stone or wooden areas have been decided yet.
A civil engineer has been engaged, a geo technologist is in the works and we are nearing the point of putting out bids for a general contractor. We are on schedule to celebrate Easter 2021 in the new Fellowship Hall. If anyone would like to see the plans or has questions, please call Ron Young (423-240-0954) or Peter Savard (423-331-7655).
With fingers crossed and praying for God's continued Blessings,
