There will be a Congregational Meeting after Worship on Sunday September 30. The Accessibility Team will be giving a final construction update as the project nears completion. The construction doors will be open for you to see how close we are to having it all finished! We will also be sharing the next steps for fundraising and discussing our plans for our Grand Opening and special Celebration Worship Service. You don’t want to miss this!
As you can see from the photo the steel is up and the new sign on the gym exterior wall. We’re progressing valiantly towards 2018.
The online portion of our study of Philip Yancey’s book Prayer: Does It Make Any Difference is now up on Rev. Read’s blog. There will be a new posting each week on Thursday with a full copy of the discussion guide included. Copies of the book continue to be available through the church office. https://houseandsanctuary.blog/
Last week week we were back in the sanctuary after a few weeks worshiping in the gym. This Sunday, we’ll be using the new sanctuary stairs as our main entrance. The main doors to the gym are closed as work starts on the lobby.
I regret to inform you that David Blackwell died on Saturday after a long illness. Our prayers are with his family and friends.
David’s funeral will be 11am, Thursday Aug 17th, here at St. Andrew’s.
A reception will follow here at the church.
Visitation will be 4-7pm on Wednesday at Dodsworth and Brown Funeral Home, Wilson Street, Ancaster. (Next to Timmy’s).
You can see that the exterior stairs are almost complete in this week’s photos. Depending on the rest of this week, this may allow services to run in the Sanctuary this Sunday.
This week we’ve seen the foundation of the Narthex steps go it. (See photos). Already more progress has been made, so come on Sunday and see us racing full steam ahead!
This past week saw the removal of the ceiling outside the gym entrance.
Next week we will be starting with tree removal and brush removal. We will be setting a fence up to close off the sidewalk going to the narthex stairs and stairs going down to the main entrance. So there is lots of progress on the project.
