FUTURE PLANS AT RIVERSIDE.jpg
 

In spring 2017, a church visioning was initiated.  Some changes that have already been addressed are the trash dumpster was moved to the back of the parking lot, cracks and dings on some walls were repaired and painted, the quad was decluttered, three restrooms were repainted, and Room 210 got a facelift.

When the east elevator entrance was built 20 years ago, the church building became more accessible, but it created a different foot traffic pattern that created a wandering path through several rooms in order to get into the church.  To improve the traffic pattern and eliminate the need to wander through rooms, several walls were removed to create one large Welcome Center, adding a second double doorway to the left of the Sanctuary doors.  This space will be a meeting place, and serve as a crossroads to other rooms in the church. 

Much work has been completed so far, such as new HVAC connections, upgraded wiring and lighting, integrated stereo and media equipment, and roughed-in spaces for decorative glass. See the slideshow below for progress pictures.
