You have to admit, a new elevator really is an Exciting Thing. Especially when there are three floors of space that will be fully accessible for worship, meetings, activities, potlucks, and all the things.

But getting that elevator installed is a lot of work. The old machinery was removed. Then they dug. And dug some more. Finally, they have installed part of the shaft. Cement was poured, walls were waterproofed, and dirt is waiting to be backfilled.

The elevator is a huge structure, very heavy, with moving parts. It is a key component of the renovations. So it’s important to get it right. Crews work diligently and methodically to make that happen. But it’s not happening overnight.

Progress is ongoing. Keep these guys in your prayers.
