Update 06/28/19: Asbestos abatement is complete and all equipment has been removed. Air quality samples were "excellent." The building is now ready for the next phase - restoration and/or renevation.
Original Post: On Sunday, May 5, 2019 a water line break was discovered in the Education Building. A great deal of damage had been done before it was discovered.
Above is a slideshow of some of the damage, but it can not convey the extent of lost books, posters, resources, etc. that were damaged and had to be thrown out.
In the process of drying out the building and cleaning out contents, it was discovered that there was asbestos in the flooring. It would need to be removed before any restoration could be possible. AB Control has begun that removal process and we hope to have it completed before the July 4 holiday.
The church is considering what to do in the restoration process - whether to try to restore it as it was or modify the inside to open other ministry possibilities. Mr. Jimmy Vause has been coordinating that effort as we try to determine what is best for the church and what we think we can afford to do at this time. We believe, however, that God is bigger than our circumstances and are trusting Him to do "to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think."
