Sanctuary Project 2017
 
For well over 100 years, the congregation we now call Belmont United Methodist Church has played an important role in the community of Belmont and beyond.
 
Through dynamic worship services, powerful Bible studies, and passionate outreach to the community, we continue to build on that legacy today. As we continue to boldly move into the future that God has for us, we are currently in the planning stages of a sanctuary project which will help make our church an attractive, welcoming place for years to come.
 
As part of this project the flooring in the sanctuary and adjacent areas with be replaced with fresh carpet and our current pews will be replaced with comfortable chairs. As part of this process, the sanctuary will undergo asbestos mitigation.
 
Please continue to be in prayer about how you support this project. In the coming weeks a commitment card will be available so you can pledge your support.

Five reasons for chairs:

 
1. More comfortable for everyone
2. Safer for those with physical challenges
3. Can be moved depending on seating needs
4. Flexibility allows for sanctuary to be used for multiple purposes
5. More attractive to our changing community


 

How can you help?
 

Pray for Revitalization Project.

Stay informed.  Ask questions about the project especially if the information you receive doesn't sound right.


Look at the calendars posted by the office and on the window of the Cry Room.  Best place to see when/what is happening.

Many opportunities to volunteer, not all volunteer jobs involve lifting and moving items.
