We have a daycare that serves as a low cost daycare option for families, and is a great outreach tool. As of right now we have had to close our daycare until the repairs have been made.
We open our gym up for wedding receptions, family reunions, birthday parties, Christmas dinner, Thanksgiving dinner, and to our local basketball organization. We would like to continue to offer our building for these services, but the repairs needed are overwhelming.
The following is a list of all the urgent repairs we currently are in need of right now:
*Flooring - The flooring had to be removed due to mildew, so now there is only the concrete slab.
*A/C - The two A/C units we have for the daycare have completely stopped working, and temperatures are exceeding 100 degrees.
*Electrical repairs - We have many outlets and light fixtures that are not working.
*Mildew repairs - Mildew resistant paint, duct work repair.
YOUTH & GYM
*A/C - The A/C unit for the youth room has also completely stopped working. The youth are still having services and Bible study in this room, and it is extremely too hot for them.
*Electrical repairs - We have one working outlet and minimal working lights in the youth room.
*Sheetrock repairs - Much of the sheetrock is badly in need of repair.
*Flooring - Our youth room is located upstairs above the Gym, and we have numerous holes in the floor.
CHURCH (SANCTUARY, CLASSROOMS, OFFICES, AND NURSERY)
*Sheetrock repairs - We have some water damage due to our leaking roof.
*A/C - Only one of our A/C units works in the Church. The A/C that operates for the nursery, the Secretary's office, the Pastor's office, and the Bible study classrooms is not working.
*Roof - Our roof is leaking and it is causing extensive damage to our framework.
*Insulation - Due to the damaged roof, our insulation also needs to be replaced.
*Electrical repairs - We have numerous outlets and lights in the Sanctuary and classrooms that are not working.
*Window - We have a broken window in our nursery.
We also have a few needs that are not a necessity, but that we are praying for:
*New sound equipment for our Worship Team.
*Our bell tower was severly damaged from wind damage, and we need to have the remaining brickwork demolished. We would prefer to replace the bell tower if possible.
*Supplies for our Children's Church, Youth Group, and BGMC.
Any help is appreciated - we will be using 100% of the funds for the repairs needed. We can also provide a giving statement for tax reporting. We also need, and appreciate, all of your prayers for our Church and our missionaries currently working all over the world. Thank you so much!
And if you don't already have a church home, we would love to have you join ours, or a Bible based church in your area. Thank you and God bless! You can visit our website for contact information, service times, our beliefs, etc., at www.HighlandsFirstAssembly.org.
