Here is an artist’s rendering of what the building will look like when the expansion is complete. This view is looking to the east from the parking lot, with the existing building in the left hand part of the frame.

Frequently Asked Questions about the Building Expansion Project:
When will the construction begin? At this point, a good guess would be April 2020, although earlier and later are still very much possibilities at this point.
Whether or not the sanctuary would be used during the renovation and expansion? Yes, the sanctuary will remain in use during construction. Our architect and builder are planning very carefully to ensure minimal disruption to our congregational routines.
In what ways will the new building be ADA compliant? The building will be fully complaint, from restrooms, to the new main entrance, and to more subtle interior accommodations, such as ramp access to the pulpit area.
