Post-flood Ministry Adjustments and Restoration Update

We'll post updates here continuously over the next few weeks ...

Sunday Services in Pittsboro

We will hold one service at 9:15am at the Pittsboro Roadhouse this Sunday (August 19).

Youth Group / Student Ministry

Youth Group is on break this week

Outside Organizations previously scheduled to use the space this week and next:

  • Al-Anon - Moved to St. Bartholomews (204 W Salisbury St, Pittsboro, NC 27312)
  • Music with Mar - Moved to Chatham County Library

 

Restoration Status

Water infiltration has mostly stopped. Front gutters have been cleared of debris. Windows have been taped. Baseboards have been removed. Plumbing has been restored. Retaining wall brick has been removed by hand. Insurance adjusters have been to see the space.

An engineer has assessed the hill and has determined that it presents no current threat to the building. He will draw up plans for a new retaining wall next week. Engineer does not anticipate any threat to our CO while retaining wall is being rebuilt.

Jamie Munn and Jay Anderson have been hard at work sanitizing the floors that don't need to be replaced. The bathrooms, office-side storage rooms, worship-side storage room and foyer are cleaned.

All flooring except the tile has been removed. VCT tile has been ordered for the office-side of the building and replacement carpet has been ordered for the worship side. Tile install is scheduled to begin Wednesday next week. Delivery time on the carpet for the worship space is 7-10 business days.

Fans, air filters, and dehumidifiers are running at full tilt around the clock.

Before we can re-occupy the space:
- Floors and wall cleared of moisture and certified mold-free
- Carpets removed and replaced
- Damaged drywall removed and replaced
- Gutters cleared and hill braced

Before space is fully restored all of the above must be done, plus:
- replace damaged windows
- replace damaged furnitire and supplies
- replace baseboards
- retaining wall rebuilt

Current estimate before we can re-occupy
3-4 weeks

Hi Trish,

We'll be at a single service at 9:15. The Roadhouse has a great, big venue in the back of the restaurant that can easily hold 180 people.

And thanks, Rachel!
Thanks for this update, I’m thankful for retaining the CO, and that the damage is reparable in such a reasonable timeframe. Thank you!
What service times will be held at Roadhouse, both services or a single service?
Hi Heidi, For youth group questions, contact Blake at barbera.blake@gmail.com
Is there youth group tonight? If so, where?
