Metanoia Center Work Days

In June we had two Saturday Work Days.   Just under 50 volunteers showed up over these two Saturdays to take down walls, haul out trash, pull down metal interior ceilings, paint, do yard work, and more!  We are making great progress on tearing out all the bad stuff in the building thanks to our many volunteers and donors!   To date, around 15 tons of stuff has been placed in dumpsters from the building!  It now looks totally different than when we first acquired it in February of this year.   And, there is more to come!

Prayer Topics

  • Pray with us as we move forward on the building rehab.  Steve and Terry, during our most recent work day, removed the ceiling tile, wiring, wood strips and furnace from the ceiling of the collapsed floor.  We are now reaching out to contractors to help determine a cost to repair the floor to code!
  • Pray as we continue to connect to those who live in the block around our building.
  • Pray for the safety of our volunteers as they work hands-on helping realize this building for the Metanoia Center.
  • Pray for ongoing financial donations for our personal support, as well as for funds to continue the rehab work at the Metanoia Center.
