The anticipation, relief and excitement rise daily as the Valley church of Christ gets ready for its first Sunday Assembly in our new building. We could not say enough words of thanks to those to whom we are in debt. There have been 100’s of excellent construction workers, many caring volunteers giving many 1000’s of hours of labor and service, much sacrificed to raise funds and donate property, and more determination and patience than could ever be described.
Dear Valley church Family,
Our Wonderful Heavenly Father has blessed us with progress and success in some of the last phases of our new building construction. Therefore, with God’s blessings, we plan to have our first service on the 11th, the second Sunday in September. That first Sunday will have a full service, fellowship meal and Bible class schedule, if at all possible. Our last Sunday in the old building will be Sunday, September 4th and we will not have classes on that day. Our hope is to use the 2 week period from the 29th of August through the 10th of September as a time of moving, preparation and set-up. The Labor Day weekend should give us extra time and flexibility to get things ready. We will have classes on Sunday the 28th.
We are having a meeting tomorrow, Saturday at 10AM at the new building for all teachers (past, current, & future) and all those who want to help get ready for our first service and Bible classes there.
What: Organization & Planning Meeting
Why: Discuss and Decide:
- - Classroom uses based on class sizes and needs
- - Classroom preparation
- - Supply Room preparation
- - Moving Schedule
- - Cleaning needs
- - Set up needs
- - Fellowship meal preparation
- - On-going Construction
- - Anything else
When: Saturday, August 27th starting at 10:00 AM
Where: Fellowship Hall of the New Building (1125 Majestic View Cir., Wasilla)
Who: All teachers (past, current, & future), deacons whose work is connected with the building, those responsible (or want to be) for areas in the building, and all those who want to help. (We need help.)
Please give thanks to God for this and pray for a unifying and smooth transition.
Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. 1Thes 5:16-18
With His Love and Joy,
I have spoken with the manager of Jansen-Eastman Funeral Home about the new lawn areas. The parking plan is now revised to allow parking in front of the building next to Blue Lupine is and in the area adjacent to Hartley Motors. Be advised that there is a lot of new, soft fill in the area adjacent to Hartley Motors. The rest of the plan stays the same as sent by email last week. Please be careful to not disturb the new lawns as shown in the attached parking plan.
Thank you, Dave Williams
Dear Valley church Family, We want you all to know about the progress of your new building. We told you a few weeks ago that two major inspections were successfully completed. Our borough fire inspector and our construction codes inspector both gave us the go-ahead for dry wall installation. They praised the building construction quality and only required a tiny correction to be made.
A great deal of work has been done in the last several days at the building:
Barry has been finalizing the framing of walls in several areas inside the building. Among the most significant are the very tall walls around the baptistery at the front of the auditorium.
