Yesterday we shared this picture on our blog and letting you know that two areas of the church property will have safety fencing up during construction. As a reminder, these areas are off limits, even on Sunday mornings or when construction workers aren’t present!
One of the things you’ll notice is that the Gazebo entrance to Church #3 is in the construction zone. Starting November 16 this entrance will be closed throughout construction, even on Sunday mornings. The door facing out to the 1604 parking lot that is in the conference room will now be unlocked when the church is open.
In addition to the doors closest to the gazebo being closed during construction, once we start worshiping in the FLC, additional entrances to Church #3 will be closed during construction.
Starting in early 2016, the narthex, sanctuary, and music apse will be in the construction zone and will be off limits until construction is over in Fall 2016. This means that in early 2016, we expect all the doors that lead to the narthex will be closed until construction is over. When that happens the door outside the conference room (facing the 1604 side of the Church’s property) will become the ONLY entrance into Church #3.
With that said, we need your help with a couple of things:
-First of all, we ask that everyone have a sense of generosity and adventure. This isn’t forever and it will lead to some wonderful changes here at Zion.
-From the 1604 parking lot, the Conference Room door will now be open when the church is open. If you have limited mobility, please note that this is a grassy, uneven walk to the sidewalk next to the sanctuary.
-If you are physically able, please use the less accessible parking spaces on Sunday mornings so that the closer spaces can be used by those with limited mobility, small children, and visitors.
