We have been meeting in a hotel for the last 3.5 years and just recently rented a warehouse space to turn into a worship center/church but we're still waiting to get the plans so we can submit them to get the building permits. We were hoping to be in by Easter but that ain't happening! WELL, we get a call today at 3 pm that the hotel manager wants to talk to us (she called church and hubby was home). There is a problem. We finally get in touch with her and it seems the old events manager booked a large chess tournament at the hotel and they just were notified that it will be 3x as many people as they thought so it means that they have no place for us to meet. Hmmm - interesting. Thank heavens we have our warehouse! So this Sunday, we will be having church in a bare warehouse. There is a small office (we'll use for the kids' Sunday school) and two single seater bathrooms (sufficient for us but UGLY) in addition to the wide open warehouse space. The acoustics are great so we'll skip the sound system. Hubby wants to just cut the ties with the hotel now but we can't yet because once we start construction, it just won't be safe to meet there but man, I can't believe our first real church service will be on folding metal chairs, on a cement floor with concrete walls. This is going to be GREAT!!!!
