    Building Renovation Plan Nears Completion

  • The comprehensive interior renovation plans and costs of our 37 Miller Street building are almost completely finalized. When completed in 2017, the second floor will be used for church services and also be the most useful performance and event space in the Belfast, providing a venue for public meetings, suppers, music and theatrical performances, lectures and all sorts of other large events. An updated sound system will assure that every word spoken during church services or performances can be heard.

    The totally redesigned first floor will have four brand new RE rooms, including two rooms that will be qualified to house a community infant care center, should we decide to host one. A large meeting room for church and community events will be located adjacent to the kitchen. The church’s administrative office will be on the sunny side of the building. There will be huge amounts of space for storage on both floors and in the newly renovated the basement. All three floors will be served by an elevator.

    Roger Lee and Charlie Plourde, our contractor, have created a realistic work plan and budget for the first phase of the project. All structural and code issues will be included in the initial construction project, but some finishing details will need to be addressed later

    We have been gratified by the generous response to our $880,000 Capital Campaign. Reaching our goal is essential to avoid cuts to significant items in the renovation plan. We can do this if everyone pitches in to the best of their ability. A large and committed group volunteers can help us bring the building to completion.

    During our construction year Sunday services will be held at the East Belfast School, and administrative offices will be located at the Belfast Center, the red and white building at the corner of High and Field Streets. We will move out of the church building in June, and volunteers are needed to help pack and facilitate the move.

    In less than a year our “new” church building will be ready for us!
