The lower level of the church is being given a facelift; work started in May and is almost complete. People using that space are benefiting from new flooring and fresh paint. While the area has received several coats of paint before, this is the first upgrade of the industrial carpet that was installed in 1995 when the lower level was built.
The main hall and the open youth area now have vinyl tile that looks like hardwood flooring — all the better to clean up after serving meals every week. The 5 classrooms, the hallway by the restrooms and the area by the elevator have carpet squares.
Room 2 (Jr. High Sunday school) now sports a whiteboard to replace the outdated chalkboard and in Room 12 (Film Room) the old, large screen projection TV has been replaced with a new flat screen TV. The In addition, the glass panels in all the doors have been shimmed and caulked to keep them from rattling. The doors themselves still need to be adjusted to keep them from slamming shut.
The walls are painted an “Uncertain Gray” (I’m not making this up) with “Gale Force” window and door trim. The classrooms are painted “Green Sprout” and the walls between the poured pillars in the youth area are painted “Foggy Day.” Our designer set off the center part of the youth area (the corrugated metal wall) with “Green Sprout” along the pillars and the poured beams and “Gale Force” to contrast with the silver of the wall. The painters need about one more day to finish up the kitchen and the youth area.
