In this season of Thanksgiving, we intentionally count our blessings. Drywall is going up! Painting is in progress! Our move-in date has been pushed back due to unforeseen delays, but our attitude remains positive and grateful. God continues to provide for us, and our students remain excited and patient for their new classrooms.
Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances;
for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
Stay tuned to learn about how you can help us outfit the building and make finishing touches on our new classrooms!
Progress continues with the building expansion project at Crown of Life! Once the roof went on, work moved forward with installing the HVAC system. This past weekend, we were able to see the windows go in and are excited by all of the natural light they will bring to our new classrooms! As soon as the entire building is enclosed, the air will come on, and the fun work will be done in transforming this large space into classrooms, church rooms, art closets, and more!
Updates to follow as we continue to see this space come to life!
The exterior walls have gone up! It's very exciting to see a glimpse of what the finished project will look like. And even more exciting knowing that a Christ-centered education will be provided within these walls!
Summer break is half way over and the building won't be completed by the first day of school, but we are thankful that our growing classrooms will have a place to expand into for the 2019-2020 school year!
Progress continues with our Building Expansion Project, even though it is not quite as obvious and exciting as demolition. Without much to see above ground, progress is being made below ground. Building pad preparation and underground utilities are being put into place. The laying of the foundation has begun!
As a Christ-centered school, this foundation brings us incredible joy! Not only for knowing what will be built upon it, but also as a reminder of the foundation of our faith. Christ is our Cornerstone, our Rock, our Salvation. Jesus told us in Luke 6...
"As for everyone who comes to me and hears my words and puts them into practice, I will show you what they are like. They are like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built."
This is our desire for everyone who will walk the halls of our new building that they will know the secure footing that is available for them with a foundation of Christ. Join us in prayer for the construction workers, for the church members who sacrifice and support the project, and for the students and their families who will enter into this new place. True joy is found in a secure Foundation!
This morning Crown of Life Lutheran Church ended service with a groundbreaking for the new addition that will connect our church and school buildings. It was a joyous occasion to come together to ask God for His blessing as we set apart this ground for the building expansion and His glory.
We pray that God will be glorified in this place and that the gospel will continue to be shared throughout our community.
Thank you to our church and school leaders for your love and dedication, and thank you to all of our Crown of Life families for your continual support. We are so blessed!
Week one of the building expansion project came with dramatic changes as we watched the demolition of our old fellowship hall. Clean up continued into week two, and then progress moved from the excitement of demo to the importance of support structures. The church's current narthex will be removed but the movement of a/c units and the need for support structures are being worked on in preparation for continual dismantling. A new narthex will later be constructed to connect the church sanctuary to the new addition to the school.
With all of these changes, Wednesday's school chapel and Sunday services are now taking place in the school's gym.
Groundbreaking is planned for this coming Sunday, May 19th during the 9am service. Join us as we celebrate God's provisions and the upcoming construction of our new building!
The first of May brought a lot of excitement to Crown of Life! All school year, we have been waiting with much anticipation to start construction on our building expansion project. We are adding approximately 7000 square feet between the school building and the church sanctuary. The new addition will host 4 classrooms, bathrooms, and a large entryway, plus additional rooms for Sunday mornings.
This week our permits came through, a construction office was delivered, and the site was fenced off for our safety. On May 2nd, demolition began! The old fellowship hall was removed, as well as the covered walkway between our three buildings. Our students are filled with excitement as they watch through our glass front doors, which have become a perfect viewing area.
Praise the Lord with us as we thank Him for His continual provision and the growth of Crown of Life Christian Academy!
