After many months of hard work by our staff, the Renovations Committee, and the Trustees, we are excited to share further plans and timelines for facilities improvements as part of the Boundless initiative.
Most notably, we are moving forward with architects to improve areas for adults and children, including building a bypass to run parallel to the 100 hallway, creating kid check-in stations, and doing other work to improve security, appearance, and function. Following a bid process, we hope to begin construction on these pieces this summer. In addition, we continue to work out the best plan for adult ministry space and the Church Office in order to best meet current and future needs. As those plans are finalized and a timeline is developed, we will share that with you.
Beyond these larger pieces, many smaller projects are in the works. This is not a comprehensive list, but here are improvements to look for in the coming months:
Holden Road Campus
New padded chairs in the Fellowship Center and nearby meeting rooms. (March)
New carpet in the Chapel and replacement of pews with padded chairs to make it a more flexible, comfortable space. (April)*
New furnishings in the Gathering Space and other common areas to create an attractive, comfortable setting for all generations. (May)
The addition of hearing loops to the Sanctuary and the Fellowship Center to provide a better experience for those with hearing loss. This is funded in part by a gift from the Christ Church Endowment Ministry. (Summer)
New carpet/flooring in the Fellowship Center and common areas. (Summer)
HVAC upgrades to the Sanctuary to improve comfort and preserve the longevity of the Fisk organ. These upgrades are the first phase in improved HVAC function throughout the entire facility. (March)
New carpet/flooring in the Glenwood Sanctuary and replacement of pews with padded chairs to make it a more flexible, comfortable space. This is made possible through grant funding for the Glenwood Campus. (March)
If you have any questions, please contact Jeff Goree, Trustees Chair (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Louis Timberlake, Executive Pastor (email@example.com).
*Note: As we remove pews from the Holden Rd Chapel, if you would like one, please contact Mark Ledford (firstname.lastname@example.org) by the end of March. There is no cost, but they are available on a first come, first serve basis, and you must transport it from the church campus.
