Something Old & Something New

No, I’m not talking weddings here, but it does involve church!  As most of you know we were in the process of renting a new building for the church.  Soooo I thought I would post some pictures of the new church.  Some of them will be before the work that went on last week and others will be when everything is fixed, painted and new!  Oh, how exciting it was!  We arrived early at the church around 9am, there were people waiting in the parking lot!  There were around 65 there for Sunday School and around 100 for the morning service.  Only the front rows weren’t packed, people had to SHARE pews.  You know how people just LOVE  to share pews!  Oh, and we HAVE pews!  Are we moving up or what?  There was a couple there that lives in our development!  They had visited once a long time ago in the other building and came back on Sunday!  Let’s pray they come back on Sunday.  They have the cutest 4 week old little girl!  Okay, I’ll quit rambling, and on to something you can see…

Okay, this picture really doesn’t do it justice.  This is my SS class.  The above was before we moved in, the below was on Sunday.  The walls were painted, windows cleaned and wow, how many holes were puttied!

This one’s a little dark and doesn’t do it justice!  They cleaned stuff out, Mr. Byler scrubbed, sanded and painted the floor, then the ladies organized.  Let me tell you, it doesn’t even look like the same place!

In the auditorium, we had to remove a couple of items.  See if you can spot what we removed.

We had some good friends come up from Charlotte.  Their kids play a variety of instruments.  They played with the kids from our church and then provided special music right before the preaching.  It was absolutely  beautiful!

Sorry, not the greatest pictures!  It is really hard to take pictures while the service is going on!
