CHURCH DAMAGE ☹
Unfortunately we have experienced some serious water damage to our church. Sometime after 2nd service, the stopper was stopped and the water faucet was left on in the sink in the men's upstairs bathroom. The water ran all of Sunday until Monday morning, severely flooding the bathrooms, hallway, nursery, small kitchen, and part of the new café area. The water then went through the floor and into the fellowship hall. After calling the city we estimate it was about 5,000 gallons of water. The damage is far reaching. The Trustees on duty checked the bathroom before locking up and everything was ok. We checked camera footage of outside doors and no one came into church after services to do this. We can only conclude that it was done accidentally by someone after 2nd service who was already here.
We can all be more vigilant in taking care of God's House. Parents, please accompany and monitor your young children when they use the restrooms. Whoever uses the restrooms, please make sure the faucets are off, toilets are not running, and lights are off when you leave. Elders and Trustees on duty please continue to make sure to go into all bathrooms to visibly inspect before leaving.
Church building care falls on everyone. We are blessed to have such a big, beautiful church and we are all caretakers of God's house and we need to treat it like our own.
We will keep you informed as things progress. The repairs will be ongoing so please be patient!
The Church Nursery is closed until all restoration in complete. Please stay out of that space until further notice. We are so sorry for the inconvenience!

Church Nursery Needs
We are looking for (2) changing tables, one for the Nursery and one for the Youth House. If you have any gently used changing tables we could put them to good use! Just call the church office at 894-8471. Thank you to those who donated the rockers!!
We are in the process of updating our nursery. The painting is complete and now we are looking for children's artwork! If you have any of your child's artwork that you saved from the past or maybe some current creations, your donations would be very much appreciated! The nursery crew will frame and hang them! Artwork can be dropped off in the office. If you have any questions, please contact Marilee Bailey at 893-5008. Thanks for your help!
