Steve Wood recently wrote to the parish and informed us that we will not be granted access to some of our buildings. Someone asked what parts of the building that applied to. This applies to the Ministry Center and any portion of our property connected to the Ministry Center. That includes Sams Hall, the medical clinic, the library, ground floor offices, youth offices, workroom, kitchen, and all of our children’s area. We may use Catlin Annex and the Historic Church.
Going forward we must determine which parts of the building are structurally safe. Those portions of the building that can be cleaned and restored will be isolated from the Ministry Center areas and the building will be made safe with proper lighting, egress, exit signs, and alarm systems. The process will take time and access is limited to authorized personnel involved in the demolition, mitigation, and construction activities.
