In the nine years since the construction of our present worship center, our choir has tripled in size. We have made use of an ever expanding collection of portable risers to accommodate this growing choir. Over these years, we have dreamed, planned, designed and redesigned a permanent choir loft for our worship space. In May of 2015, the project was undertaken in earnest, first with a capital funding campaign, then with construction beginning in February of 2016. On May 2, 2016, the visible and physical part of the project was completed as Sauder Chruch furnishings delivered and installed new seating. Though two additional related pieces of this project are still outstanding, we are moving ahead with plans for a dedication of the choir loft on June 5 during each of the three morning worship services.
Below is a slide show of the construction of the new loft from beginning to end.
