Little Church looks beautiful! I'm sorry I don't have pictures to show you the painted walls and ceilings, the front doors painted red, the front porch columns are fresh white and the steps are a safe grey with grit in the paint to prevent slipping!
Oh, we are getting so pretty!

After the carpet was pulled up, we saw beautiful wide plank wood floors! No piecing of odd wood or damage, just old wooden floors ready for refinishing! The acoustics this morning in worship sound crystal clear without the carpet. When the floor work is finished and the pews are returned, I wish we would ditch the pew cushions to keep the lovely sound in the sanctuary.

When I first met Little Church, the pulpit had a microphone for the preacher. I never needed it and, with wood floors, no one who knows how to project her voice will need extra help.

Our singing sounded better and filled the space with joy.

Much more work to do in the coming months but I see and hear progress!

If you shake out your pew cushions and see extra change, send it to us...

wish I could have been thee, but duty called to Little Church in the Wildewood.
Wood floors are so so great. I still favor my pew cushions when I have to sit in the congregation.
Give us a list of soem special needs you have!

Songbird, we'll talk! Blessings to your women's group!

Presbyterian Gal, when you visit Little Church, we will shower you with attention and thanks!!!

Elastigirl, doors do seem a bit Episcopalian...but that's what we wanted...aren't red doors a reference to Christ's blood?

It's all so exciting!!!!
