Do you remember reading the following during the Stewardship campaign last year?
Welcoming All: Buildings Brimming with Welcome
Cloistered along a busy North Raleigh thoroughfare sits 5010 Six Forks Road, our congregational home. What beautiful grounds! What a majestic transition from the parking lot into our Narthex! What a bright, airy Sanctuary! Drive down the loop behind our buildings and you are on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Not only does Grace have an ideal location, we have a treasured facility.
From here we help spread the Kingdom of God. Here we welcome all. These facilities are tools through which the light and life of Jesus touches and welcomes others.
Maintaining and enhancing our facilities strengthens our welcome. And it is well worth the investment to update our exterior lighting, maintain our native landscapes, update HVAC, repair roofs and parking lots, fix plumbing, replace carpets in Offices and Miller Building, and replace some exterior doors. All of this enables our welcome to be strong, supporting our mission to seek the fullness of life in Christ for all people.
Buildings brimming with welcome!
Facility Improvements – From Parking Lots to Paint
As a result of your generous increases in given for 2018, our buildings are brimming with welcome. Our parking lot welcomes you and our guests with well marked spaces inviting you to our church. New carpets and painted walls in our church office and the Miller building provide our staff with a clean working environment that is refreshing and pleasant.
Outdoor Lighting – Safety and Security
The increased lighting in the parking lot not only adds security for the church grounds, but it also provides safety for everyone including organizations utilizing our space for outreach activities as well as our adults and children.
“We are so thankful for the new lighting in the church parking lot. It illuminates the beautiful church grounds and provides peace of mind when the kids and I leave Covenant Choir practice on Wednesday nights.”
This maintenance and improvement for our buildings and grounds are a direct result of your continuous support for our 2018 Stewardship campaign. The Stewardship team thanks you for your increased giving and supporting these projects for Grace. Our buildings are welcoming all!
