Welcome Home

On Friday around 2:30 pm, after a really long week of hard work, Parkview was granted building occupancy. The permit was followed by a wedding that evening and services over the weekend. That's what I call coming in under the wire. Thank you Lord!

Below I've included pictures from services. I've included a few pictures on top which illustrate what the worship center looked like just 6 months ago. It's come a long way, that's for sure!

I can't say thanks enough for all the people who poured out so much in terms of time and resources to get us back so quickly. Over 50,000 square feet of facility was about 4 feet under water creating about $800,000 in renovation expense. Thankfully, with insurance money and about $240,000 in this years Thanksgiving offering, we returned to the facility with no debt. Again, thank you Lord!

As a reminder, we still have a long way to go in terms of moving back and wrapping up construction, but we are definitely thankful to have reached this first huge milestone.

Thank you Scott for your leadership thru the flood and restoration. Thanks also to all of the volunteers that made all of this come together just in time for the wedding and the Christmas celebration. What an awesome worship service we all experienced on Sunday. We do serve an awesome God. Praise to Him.
