Taking Shape

Earlier this week the worship ministry team made a first attempt at placing the new chairs in the original sanctuary. I thought you might enjoy a peak at it. The room looked good. This configuration of chairs allowed for 164 seats (plus the choir loft). More could be added if necessary. This is setup allows for generous space between the rows and easy access to the middle seats.

The organ and the piano would be placed at the front of the room.

The cross (a joint venture between Roger Allman and Betty Taber) looks wonderful and the room has a warm feel to it.
This is how it looks from the front. There is more to be done, but we're getting there.

Time to Blog Again

I haven't been blogging at all since the end of Two4Two. I've decided to try to preview the sermons on Saturdays.

We continue tomorrow with our Unthinking Series. This week's sermon is called "The Church Has Lost that New Church Smell" and is designed to help us rethink the importance of the church. In our contemporary world the church is seen by many as just another volunteer organization (one with HUGE flaws). The Apostle Paul saw the church in a very different light.
The sermon notes are done and ready. Here they are, just in case you're interested.
