New Church Building

These are exciting times as we see our property at Highway 67 and Highland Valley Road being readied for actual construction of our new church home.  After the grading is finished the next step is installing storm drains from both Highway 67 and Highland Valley Road to the north end of the property.

As we eagerly watch these changes taking place, please continue to pray for God's Blessings on this effort to build our new church home at the entrance to Ramona. Also thank Him for bring our way numerous breaks and discounts in planning and contruction costs.

Going Underground

A Bonus recording -- this is the annual easter egg hunt AND the latest construction video. Due to the construction there was not a lot of grass (read that NONE) to hide the eggs, so there isn't much hunting going on. I did find it interesting though that kids would clearly walk by dozens to pick up an egg 6 to 10 feet away. I'm not sure of the logic, but maybe it just made it more fun.

Lots of pipe, trenches, and culverts out there right now. I wonder when it will be buried and we'll have to have a map to know where this all is?  Harvey Payne, 15 Apr 2017
