Psalm 145:17 – The Lord is righteous in all his ways and loving toward all he has made.
After heavy extended rains (7+ inches) Sunday night and early Monday morning (August 26-27) in the Grafton area, we received extensive water damage to the lower level of our facility, including our fellowship hall, library, school classroom, kitchen, bathrooms, several furnace rooms, storage rooms and stairwell area. Many folks responded immediately that Monday morning and during the next few days helped salvage what we could save and dispose of what we couldn’t save. A professional company was called in to dry, disinfect and prevent mold issues.
We are grateful for all the volunteer help we’ve so far received (now in the hundreds of volunteer man-hours) and trust God’s plan for us as we prayerfully work through the remainder of the demolition and clean-up and begin to plan how we might rebuild and restore. We are also grateful that although our six stored sanctuary paintings were partially submerged, they received minimal damage and should be fully usable without any noticeable damage. We are arranging for a new area to store them in the future. Continue reading “A review of the August 27th flood damage and plans for recovery”
