A long- awaited day arrived on Sunday, April 20 when we were able to open the sanctuary doors once more. Construction of the accessible ramp at the front of the church is complete!
The ramps, steps and plaza at the top are now protected by sturdy and attractive railings. Still to be completed, the planter along the sidewalk needs to be cleaned and filled for planting.
On Saturday we received more good news about our fund raising. The Bridgeton Fund of the South East Gateway Area awarded our project a grant of $6,500. This will pay for part of the unexpected expenses to fix the drainage systems on the north and south sides of the church. As soon as the check arrives, we will update the totals in the expenses and funds raised column. We are so grateful for this grant, which recognizes the amazing commitment of the congregation to ministry in the city!
