MISSION IMPOSSIBLE 2.0
AUGUST 2017 - We now have received enough donations to finish the Office update! We'll continue to get some more bids and then get to work! Thank to each of you who have been donating to the Mission Impossible 2.0!!! Please pray for us as many final decisions still need to be made.
MARCH 2017 - Pastor Dan is getting bids on the work of Phase 2.
FEBRUARY 1, 2017 - Patrick McMahon wired in the Instant Hot Water faucet and other electrical outlets.
OCTOBER 28, 2016 - Thanks to Dennis Wagoner, as of last week, we had running water, hot and cold, into the downstairs sink. When doing a remodel, there are always unplanned repairs that need to be made, but Dennis knew how to take care of them.
With all of our October rain, we've put the repair job on the water leaks into the Fireside Room to the test. Thanks go to Gregg Mathews and Pastor Dan for the excellent repair job, there hasn't been any moisture in the room. However, we still have some leaks showing up at the base of the old stairwell to track down; thankfully all of the rain water has run into the old drywell.
OCTOBER 7, 2016 - The bottom cabinet of the coffee nook was installed this morning. Improvements are still occurring, some of them are small details, but it's good to be able to check off one more of the items.
OCTOBER 5, 2016 - The downstairs sink is being installed, still a while before all of it is operable. Thank you, Dennis Wagoner!
SEPTEMBER 23, 2016 - The four round tables arrived yesterday. Two are set up with chairs all in place; very nice.
SEPTEMBER 20, 2016 - Our new Fireside Room, downstairs in the Office Building, is now being used. Chairs are moved in, the large screen TV is functioning. Round tables are due to arrive soon. It is good to be wrapping up Phase 1. Tours are available whenever the office is open. If you want to hold your meeting/s in the room, contact Janice in the OCF Office.
SEPTEMBER 15, 2016 - The sidewalk behind the Office Building was completed early this morning. One more project completed!
SEPTEMBER 14, 2016 - The carpeting is being installed downstairs in the NEW Fireside Room.
SEPTEMBER 9, 2016 - The NEW Fireside Room (Office Building basement) walls have paint, the cupboards and counter top are sitting in place. We still don't have a sidewalk, maybe next week????
SEPTEMBER 6, 2016 - Well, the bottom cabinet for the coffee nook went back to the "drawing board" ……
The basement walls have been taped, mudded, and textured so the painting can begin today or tomorrow.
We have a new water heater, which was not a part of the Mission Impossible 2.0 plan, but since it went bad, it got replaced. Thanks to Dennis Wagoner and his sons of Faucets & Stuff. Hot water is nice for washing hands and coffee cups!
AUGUST 26, 2016 - The Office Building basement drywall is up, now waiting for the taping and mudding crew to come. We'll soon need a painting crew, how about you .... can you help for a while?
The cabinets for the coffee nook and trim around the front door/windows are being installed as I type.
AUGUST 3, 2016 - Progress is still happening! This morning when I came to work the outside lights were shining brightly. Thanks Patrick for all of your electrical work. Pastor Dan is cleaning and preparing the basement here in the Office Building so it can be used by all groups and meetings. Right now I hear the screeching of nails being pulled out of old studs in preparation for new, dry drywall. Soon he'll be installing new studs so drywall can be installed over the remaining south wall.
JULY 15, 2016 - Yeah, we're home! The equipment and supplies were all moved back into the Office Building by noon on Wednesday. Many thanks to each one who helped with the moving of equipment; we were exhausted by noon, sitting and pizza sure hit the spot, then back to work. Ken Olsen and Bob Hotchkiss rerouted the phone lines and wifi back to here. The counters in the Volunteer/Supply area are still full of items that need relocated. Soon the trim and cupboards in the Reception area will be installed and the painting of the front of the building will be completed. Thank you, volunteers and construction workers!
The Office Building basement remodel is underway. As usual, things are worse before they are better!
JULY 7, 2016 - Volunteers needed for our scheduled move back over to the Office Building on WEDNESDAY THE 13TH, STARTING AT 9:00 AM. Thank you!
JULY 1, 2016 - Thanks to Patrick McMahon we have electricity to all lights and outlets on the main floor. Plans are to move the office back to the Office on Wednesday the 13th starting at 9:00 AM. We are asking for volunteers to help! We've been working out of our boxes, so they're ready to go; as well as the computers, desk chairs, file cabinets, waste baskets and whatever. Yeah, happy day!!!
JUNE 21, 2016 - The carpet is in the process of being installed in the Office Reception area. Some of the new lights are powered.
JUNE 16, 2016 - We're all still located in the Church. Plans are to have the lighting completed and the electricity throughout the building turned on next week. Beautiful new interior trim, doors and the stair railing have been or are being installed.
Possibly the cement work will be finished and the railing installed next week.
Volunteers are needed for painting of the front and west side of the exterior of the building. Contact Joe Frogge (59-869-8503) to help with this painting project.

MAY 6, 2016 - The appearance of the front of the Office Building is changed! It's not finished yet, but the change is drastic. The siding needs painted and the slate added where there is still tar paper. The new door with side windows is being installed now. Front office windows will be installed next week. Inside the mudding and texturing are still in process, so no painting will happen tomorrow.
