What you may not know about is all the behind-the-scenes work taking place at the Warehouse. We have fully updated and refreshed the space with bright new paint, brand new carpet, and amazing wall/art displays!
Tina Swann and I have been discussing and brainstorming ideas for ways to update the Warehouse. It has been over a decade since it was last painted and the carpet laid – in a regularly used youth space, it might as well be a century! I saw the summer as a perfect opportunity to get this work completed. During VBS our middle schoolers got a great start on the work that needed to be done. They decided to make the work they did that week a surprise for me! Wow, the progress they made in those few days blew me away and renewed my eagerness to get it done!
I want to thank everyone who spent MANY long days and late nights to help complete the renovation. So far, completed projects include a new photo display, a t-shirt wall, new lighting, a beautiful cross backdrop, reupholstered chairs, new curtains, new paint throughout (walls, cabinets, bathrooms, etc.), and new carpet! There are still a few small projects to finish, but it is getting very close to being completed. I can’t thank enough the youth and adult workers who have helped, as well as the generosity of the Swanns and the Remnant & Rug Shop, Don Powers, Coaches Lee Hutto, Brad Smith, and Brinkley Bradshaw who all donated Thomson and Briarwood memorabilia. Last but definitely not least of all, thanks to my wife for her hard work to help coordinate this project, especially during VBS week.
I hope the youth are as excited as I am about the new space! Thank you for your continued giving to Capital Improvements, because it helps to cover much-needed improvements to our facilities, like the Warehouse. I can’t wait to show you the finished youth space soon!
To God be the glory!
