This slide show was used in a presentation to the congregation of First (Scots) Presbyterian Church in the Fall of 2008. The purpose of the presentation was to • describe the plans for the new building, • outline the expected costs, and • offer a motion to approve the plans. This edition of the slide show has been stripped of its original sound track and animation. Use the buttons below to advance the slides. Begin by clicking on the gray arrow to the immediate right of the green arrow.
We will go from our current 17 classrooms for all ages (most of which are inadequately small with poor lighting, few electrical outlets, poor heating and cooling and inadequate furnishings) to 29 classrooms which are age appropriate, spacious, well-equipped, handicapped accessible and flexible.
We will also pick up 1,800 square feet of multi-purpose assembly areas and storage facilities for our Weekday Kindergarten, Sunday School, Kirk Club and youth programs.
Our youth have requested that for the near future they remain in the Kirk House which they recently helped to renovate. The Kirk House will be renovated as well but when the youth need additional space, overflow space will be available in the new building
Our church facilities are used daily by congregational, community, and benevolent groups who need places to meet. We will now be able to provide flexible and comfortable meeting space for many of these active ministries.
