READY OR NOT, WE’RE REMODELING & NASCAR

We’ve been needing to remodel our church auditorium for some time now. As of Thursday morning, the remodeling project has begun, like it or not. You see sometime during the night Wednesday, a water valve broke in the balcony above the auditorium and flooded the balcony, auditorium and basement of the church building. Major water damage took place to the floors, ceiling, carpet and pews of the auditorium.

Friday we decided that we’d be unable to meet in the auditorium for services, so we’ll be having services in the fellowship hall for the next few weeks while things are being repaired. We’ve got 325 chairs set up for services. It’s a tight fit, but it did fit. I’m also anxious to see 300 plus people fit in the fellowship hall. I’m not sure we’ll need the heater going.

I’m actually excited about worship in the fellowship hall for a couple of reasons. I think the singing will be fantastic and as tight as it is, the service will be up close and personal. :) Since everything was still wet up in the auditorium, I thought it would be neat if I showed up to preach this Sunday morning in my fishing waders or rubber boots.

I’m anxious to see how things go over the next few weeks. There will be no PowerPoint for my sermon, no overhead music for the singing and no tape recordings of the sermons. I’ll try to update the sermon site each week with a sermon from last year that you haven’t heard.

So for my Childress family, we’ll have to adjust a little over the next few weeks, but we can handle it. So, let the remodeling project begin.

NASCAR SEASON kicks off today with the Dayton 500. Yee Haw. I love NASCAR. If you watch it and don’t know who to pull for, try Jeff Gordon in the number 24 car or Jimmy Johnson in the 48 car. I’m not going to have time to watch the 500 live, so I’ll have to TiVo it and watch it when I get in Sunday evening. DO NOT tell me who won before I watch it.

    Trey,
    I’m sorry to hear about the water damage to your church!How awful!

    Your method of presentation may have to change but your message will not. It will work out.

    Do be a risk-taker and wear the hip waders. I think that would be great!:)

    You lost me at “Nascar.”

    HA!!

    I think sometimes change of venue makes you take things in differently. And I always like a little adventure. Sounds fun!

    Atleast you are supporting a Ford driver by posting the picture of a DeWALT tool. I knew it!!

    Ahhh, I love NASCAR and its nice to see a fellow Gordon fan. Forget all the haters Trey, they are just jealous

  8. Trey Morgan says:

    I wondered if anyone would pick up on the DeWalt saw (17).

    JP glad to have you on in the Gordon nation. Jealous is right.
