Rare Views: Inside the Church Renovations

Jesus is the cornerstone and the foundation of the church body, and through Him, our physical walls have received some support.

Those that attended the Easter Service at GMPC on April 9 may have noticed a few, “small” enhancements to the church buildings. In February 2023, the Session approved the motion for a much-needed renovation for several parts of the Church building and Fellowship Hall. Utilizing the Hubbard Fund (a restricted posthumous gift by beloved GMPC members, Jim and Frances Hubbard), a number of property-oriented updates were made to the campus. These include:

  • A new roof for the Sanctuary and Fellowship Hall
  • Plantation shutters for the Banner Room
  • A new coat of paint for the entire Sanctuary Building
  • Floor Waxing and Cleaning for the Sanctuary pews (the full Sanctuary floor has likely not been seen by many congregation members living today!)
  • [To Be Installed] New carpet for the Sanctuary Building (which should be noted, the current carpet is over 40 years old!)
The Sanctuary floor gets some much-needed TLC

While the paint and floor work was in progress, the pews had to be moved into the Fellowship Hall for safe keeping.

The Banner Room walls received a great deal of patch-up

While the carpet work is still in progress and is scheduled to begin as soon as the fabric is procured, an immense amount of work has gone into ensuring the physical church walls continue to stay healthy.

It should be said, though, that the Church continues to maintain and provide for the community in many ways, and the building is only a means necessary to bring God’s people together. Your presence is wanted, yearned for, and requested. Come sit with us this Sunday!
