Praise the Lord!
The prayer meeting for tonight is still on @ 7pm!
The fire inspection went well. Nothing expensive we have to do to satisfy the fire code so a GREAT BIG "THANK YOU JESUS!"
We still have LOTS to pray about. Several essential improvements still need to be done to meet city code and it is going to take, here it comes, money. (1) We need a handicap accessible bathroom (2) We have to encapsulate all the old material in the back rooms. The floor, the walls, the ceiling all very old building material and needs to be covered up to meet code. (3) The electrical in the building needs work. Primarily the breaker boxes in the back are a nightmare. (4) The floor needs reinforcement to meet requirements for having as many people in the building as we plan to.
And things we would like to do. (1) Primarily, as least get carpet for the area we are currently using as a sanctuary. (2) Have the dividing wall removed to open up the other side.
So, we need to petition the Lord for direction in finances. If any of you, in addition your tithe which goes toward upkeep, wants to give to the building fund, you can do so online through the APP - select "Building Fund", online giving through the website EastGateUPC.info, or mark an envelope "Building Fund" and put it in the offering at service and that money will be used only for the building.
Lord bless and looking forward to prayer!
Love you all,
