Dear Meadowood Family,
We are now in the construction phase of our Forward by Faith Campaign. Work on the roof on Fellowship Hall has been completed. They are presently working on the roofs for the Roller Coaster Hallway, the Adult Education Wing, and the Office Area.
Fellowship Hall Roof Before:
Fellowship Hall After:
Weather permitting, these improvements should be finished by the end of February and maybe even sooner.
The choir room has been painted. Once the flooring has been laid and a row of lights installed, the choir room will be complete.
Choir Room In Progress:
Work is also progressing in the Worship Center. Pews have been selected. Decisions concerning carpet and tile are close to being finalized. We have received one bid for sound, video, and lighting. We will receive two more bids this week then the decision will be made as to which sound company we will employ.
Current View of Worship Center:
We are hoping the elevator in the Children's Area can be installed in the next few weeks.
Work on the Welcome Center and the Children's playground will not occur for two to four months as architectural planning and acquiring bids takes time.
I thank you so much for your prayers, faithfulness, patience, and giving.
So far I have not had one person complain about having our worship in Fellowship Hall. In truth, there has been a spirit of joy, excitement, anticipation, and praise as we meet each week.
Commitments made to our Forward by Faith Campaign thus far are $809,005.50. The total amount already given is $175,566.00.
I am deeply grateful to the Lord Jesus for the sacrificial spirit He has created in the lives of people at Meadowood.
I would remind all of us that the commitments to Forward by Faith are over and above the tithe.
For the ministry of the church to exist and thrive our tithes must be given to support the budget.
The Forward by Faith contributions are over and above the tithe gifts. Again, I am profoundly thankful for you and the money given to support the ministries of Meadowood and the renovations provided by the gifts to the Forward by Faith Campaign.
Please continue to pray that the Lord would supply all that we need as a church as well as for our individual lives so that He can accomplish through us all the He desires.
Buildings are important, but reaching the lost for Christ, discipling believers, meeting the needs of the hurting, having a close knit fellowship, and most of all worshiping our wonderful Savior is what we are to be about.
May the Lord use the improvement of the facilities to strengthen every aspect of the service we render for Him and the community we seek to reach.
