This photograph shows the beginning stages of building the ramp.
The start date was later than originally anticipated but it is great now to see the progress that is being made.
The new ramp will be longer than what was in place before. It will meet the latest building code accessibility requirements. The roof will be a protective covering from falling snow in winter and also when it rains. It will cover both the ramp area and the south door.
NOTICE! Until the work is completed, please enter the church by the 10th Street Entrance instead of the ramp door and south entrance from the parking lot. If you require use of the elevator during the week, please phone before you come, so that someone can meet you at that entrance. On Sunday mornings, a volunteer will be stationed at that entrance to operate the elevator for you. On Sunday mornings, the usual doors will be open except the ones noted above.
We thank you for your patience.
