Facility Update - Thursday, November 4
I want to share an update regarding the Environmental Safety issues at Main Campus and how we are moving forward.
First, great news about this week’s Sunday Worship!
We plan to gather for Sunday Worship on-site at 8:00, 9:30, and 11:00am and online at 8:00, and 9:30am!
Here’s what to expect Sunday:
West Bathrooms by the chapel are closed.
Public bathrooms can be found in the following locations:
Otherwise, this Sunday will feel pretty “normal.”
What's happened so far this week…
On Monday, a Professional Abatement Team (PAT) isolated the facility areas compromised by the Environmental Safety Issues and began “cleaning the air.”
On Wednesday, the PAT began remediating the environmental hazards, removing carpet, sheetrock, and other contaminated items that cannot be cleaned over the next three days. They will also attempt to clean as many of the free-standing items located in the affected areas as possible.
After everything is cleaned, the basement will most likely be exclusively used for utility access. Furthermore, we are looking at installing groundwater control solutions to prevent future issues.
A separate and related water issue was discovered inside the wall of the West Bathrooms (by the Chapel). This specific situation also contributed significantly to the overall environmental safety of the facility. We will know more about the extent of remediation and reconstruction necessary for the West Bathrooms later this week.
Our Professional Abatement Team continues to remediate the environmental hazards in the affected areas of our Main Campus Facility.
Thanks in advance for helping make Our Savior a place where all people can belong, gather, connect, serve, and be sent to love God, love people, and live like Jesus!
Between now and Sunday, here’s how you can pray with us:
See you Sunday… on-site or online!
