Luther Hall and other building project update

main image

Since the dedication of the remodeled Room Two and new laundry room, more work has been performed on Luther Hall over the past month.

A much-needed new furnace has been installed in the building at a significantly less cost thanks to the work of our Building Committee members. The former storage closet between Rooms Two and Three is in the process of being converted into a pantry space.

Special thanks to members of the Men’s Group for volunteering to paint the room. This will allow us to store food items and other supplies needed for various ministries. The men also painted the
Pastor’s Sacristy and Vestry, which had not been painted in nearly two decades.

A new furnace is also being installed in the Church Office. Some window and door upgrades are also being assessed. The Building Committee is hard at work assessing the proposals from contractors for the Fellowship Hall Project.

More updates to come.

Yes, in God's back yard

From Eddie McCoven, church staff member:

Through our building project "God's Vision, Nuestra Misión", we discovered a way to help with the growing housing issue in San Diego.  We answered God's call to not just to build a new Fellowship Hall, but to also build affordable housing on church property.

Turns out, we're not the only group of people who had that idea.  A group of community leaders was also looking into ways faith communities, like ours, could help ease the housing crunch. This group's campaign is called "Yes, in God's back yard."

While we still have considerable time and city approvals to go through, our hope is to be able to offer some San Diegans a low cost roof over their head. In fact, our project could be the prototype of the "Yes, in God's back yard" initiative. 

In the meantime, our efforts, and that of YIGBY, caught the attention of local news outlets.
