Here we are trying to remove the water inside the fellowship hall:
These picture below give you an idea of the what we have done so far in the clean-up after the flood from Harvey.  We are still drying out and preparing to repair the damage.  Many thanks go out to our members who came and worked together to accomplish all that has been done so far.  
 
We worshipped in the foyer on Sunday, Sept. 3rd.  It was a blessing. 
Wet floor removed:
 Wet drywall removed:  We now have a contractor working for us to assist in the remodel.  
 Working to remove all the wet drywall:
Our guys removed the kitchen sink and cabinets:
 

The following are some new pictures showing some of the updates around the building as of Oct. 3rd.
This is our worship center right now:
See the podium expansion
The sheetrock is replaced near the piano side exit
Sheetrock replaced on the left aisle and all around
The podium was enlarged and looked this way
for awhile.
This is the hallway near the Men's classroom.
This is the east hallway near the Pastor's class.
Here is the Men's classroom.
Preschool classroom.
Preschool restroom
Ladies' classroom
Rear hallway.
Men's restroom (which later was enlarged)
Pastor's office (before enlarging the adjacent restroom)
 
The wood flooring was installed on the podium, partially. 
We had to wait on special pieces of the wood
for the steps.  
And we had several services at this level of
completeness.  
We worshiped in the sanctuary prior to getting the flooring completed:
 
Here you see the sanctuary tile installed before the carpet was installed.
I didn't get a picture between the time the carpet was down and the pews arrived.
 
It was a beautiful day in January when our new pews arrived for installation.  And the truck that delivered them was huge.
They laid out all the pew pieces in place.
Here you can see how they installed them
 
Here is the view after they finished.
 
 
 
Here you see how it looks as of about mid February.
There are a few details in the podium steps to complete,
but the railing can be finished now.
 
Between Mid February and May, we moved our energies to the reconstruction of our downstairs Education building.
 
May 15, 2018 - (almost 9 months since the flood came)
We had our Dedication Sunday about a week ago and 
are just now able to upload photos of our beautiful facility.
First our Sanctuary:
Here is the remodeled Fellowship Hall/Sunday School classroom :
Kitchen
Nursery
Ladies Sunday School Classroom
The library
Walkway from our education building towards the sanctuary
Foyer
 
And with this reconstruction we were able to build new restrooms downstairs that are larger and more accommodating.
All we can do is say "Thank you God" for bringing us to this point where we were able to update our facilities.  We are not finished with everything yet but we wanted to share the progress so far.  
Thank you to everyone who has given to this reconstruction effort in time, talents, and financial support.
