We Made 3 More Steps Towards Rebuilding
January 14, 2021, 8:00 AM

The last time I wrote an article about the rebuilding process was in the October newsletter. I said at that time we were waiting on three things, the completion of the new office building, a permit from the City of Callaway, and Cosco to get bids from the sub contractors.

The first one to happen was the completion of the office building. Paula, Vicki and I began moving in shortly after I wrote that article. The phones and internet have been moved as well. We are very please with the new offices. I thank God for my new office. My old one smelled like mildew.

The second one happened in the last week in November. The City of Callaway approved our plans without changes. Without changes is great news. If they had any major change we would have had to go back to the drawing board. That would have created more delays. So thank the Lord our design is approved.

The third one was completed on December 10th, Cosco presented us with the Guaranteed Fixed Price based on the sub contractors bids. We gave Cosco the thumbs up. With our approval they begin locking in the subs and ordering material. They are planning to start the remodel the first of January. Thank you Lord.

So Lord willing in 2021 we should see contractors busy as bees working on our building. And at some point we will move into the remodeled Sanctuary.

Remember the Sanctuary side is phase one. Once we are moved then Cosco will begin phase two which is the fellowship hall side of the building and the hallway. There is still design, planning and permitting to do on phase 2. Phase 2 will require more planning. The insurance company only covered the hurricane damage and phase 2 needs many code upgrades. We have to pay for the code upgrades. So when all is done the fellowship hall and hallway may be broken down into smaller phases.

Keep praying for the building committee, Cosco as plans develop and sub contractors as they do the work. We need the Lord to totally oversee this project.
