Before & After

Today was the big day! We had our first service in our renovated and expanded sanctuary. It was so nice to be back in there and to see the changes. It really is incredible. The sanctuary used to be very dark with lots of wood and mainly red/pink interior colors. Everything is neutral now and so much brighter. I am posting pictures from the sanctuary before the renovation and then from today. My camera was on the wrong setting and I did not realize it until looking at the pictures I took tonight. While the lighting change is evident in these pictures, they are no comparison to how different and better the lighting is.

(I'm sure you notice the brackets on the front of the sound board. Those are for the 60 inch plasma that won't be installed until tomorrow!)

There are still some aesthetic things that need to happen but that will come in the next few weeks. We are just grateful to finally be in there!
