As the next phase of an on-going project to update our church facilities, the church library is being renovated. Once accessed by a single door located off the front entrance hallway, the library will now open onto the Church Hall via a set of soon-to-be-installed french doors. The wallpaper has been removed and walls prepped for new paint. After new flooring is installed bookcases will be relocated to the other three walls, and book selections edited and cataloged. The library table will be refinished and situated in the center of the room. In its new configuration, the library will also serve to be used for small group gatherings and session and deacon's meetings. Combined with the renovation of the sanctuary and updates to the main gathering areas of the church, Cornerstone endeavors to provide a pleasant atmosphere conducive to godly worship and Christian fellowship.
Beginning the build of the new doorway

From Pastor Mark, Perhaps my overarching objective with regard to the building is that it is an instrument or a tool. The building is not the church, the church uses the building. Therefore the building should serve the purposes of the church and improvements that are made should foster a sense of community. The spaces that are created should allow for their most effective use and provide places where people can engage in the rich fellowship of the body of Christ. My desire is that we would promote the library and its use, to make it more accessible, and that for individuals' growth in grace.
