Renovation Updates

Building in Faith for Future Generations

Congregation up-date on renovations:


During construction work we need to be flexible and remember that this is temporary and the final results will be wonderful!  There is really no area/room in the building that will not be infected.

Architects for the Renovations:Marotta/Main
Builder:Arthur Funk and Sons
Financing through York Traditions

Implications for our congregation – Currently we have 120 family units who have made commitments totaling $838.500. Just under $200,000 cash has been received. Please continue to send in your commitments and contributions.

  •  Demolition begun on the church nave and chancel and on the upper level (south wing) future preschool rooms.
  • Parking plan for Diakon adoption and foster care, construction workers, and church staff so as to provide the majority of spaces for preschool families which are closest to the preschool entrance.
  • Phase II permits completed.
  • Fire and security monitoring transferred to the new firm who will up-date the new system needed for the renovated spaces and monitor it going forward.
  • Secured a spider web of electrical wires some of which were live under the scout room.

A word from the Organ Company – On Monday June 26 the organ console was removed. All organ chambers were sealed to protect them from debris and dust during the construction.

 What does this mean for the congregation? We will be using the piano.  The harpsicord and the grand piano from the Nave have been moved to climate controlled storage off site.
We moved back into the Sanctuary for Christmas services and currently have one service at 9:15 a.m. followed by Sunday School.  Volunteers are needed to set everything up at 8:00 a.m. as well as helpers to take it down and pack it up when the service concludes.  This is necessary so that the construction works can continue their work during the week days in the Sanctuary.
The offices and library will need to have the asbestos abated early in the New Year.  The offices will be moving to the current chapel space.  The church nave will be used for the location of the Sunday Service.  When the Springettsbury Hallway is abated the offices will be accessed through the exterior chapel door.  Signs will be posted.  This will mean that temporarily there will not be any accessible entry for those persons needing to use the ramp.  We are sorry for this temporary inconvenience.
Grounded in Gods Word, Christ Jesus, let us tell to the coming generations the glorious deeds of the Lord and the wonders he has done.
