PARKING LOT IS PAVED!!  Parking lines are painted, note handicap parking in west lot has moved, it is now in area west of portico, where guest parking used to be.

The last step is placing handicap parking signs, these will be coming soon.


July 29, 2016 Part 2

The parking lot will be paved Saturday, July 27, weather permitting.  Parking lines will be painted and the lot will be ready for use Sunday morning.


July 29, 2016

Restoration of landscaping is complete.  Paving is slated for next week after Tuesday election day.


July 22, 2016

Hope sprinkler water lines have been capped, (thanks Tom Vandeveer!).  Restoration of landscaping and final layer of paving will be next and done as soon as possible.  


July 15, 2016

Parking lot paving will be delayed due to sprinkling system being capped off for future repairs.  Once capping of system is complete, landscaping will be restored and paving will be the final step in the process.  Sprinkling system companies are busy this time of year causing a lag in this process, if anyone knows of a reliable company please let the office know.


July 8, 2016

The final layer will be paved the week of July 18th.  This will be the final piece of the project by the paving company, parking lines will be painted at that time also. 


July 1, 2016

The parking lot continues to be without painted lines, please park as usual and as orderly as possible. 

New light fixtures are in place in several areas: parking lot lights, steeple, Hope sign by street and the garage.  This will give us brighter light and more energy efficient fixtures.


June 24, 2016

The first layer of pavement is on the entire lot.  The second layer will be placed in a few weeks.  Parking is allowed on entire lot.  Note: there are currently no parking lines so park as usual and as orderly as possible. 

Don't do what staff did during the week. see photos below.



June 17, 2016

The north and west (partial) lots have been paved with the first layer of asphalt and can be used for parking.  The south lot and remaining west lot surfaces have been removed.  Also the south entrance walkway has been removed and the new concrete walkway will be poured Saturday.  The south and remaining west lot will be paved Wednesday. 

Sunday Usage: All lots and all entrances can be used for parking and entry.  Please note: the south lot and partial west lot can be used but are not paved.   The south entrance walkway will be paved on Saturday and can be used on Sunday. 

Please be careful while navigating the improvements to our parking lot at Hope!


June 10, 2016

The west and north parking lot surfaces have been removed.  The current surface is prepared and parking is allowed on both west and north lots.  Severe rain might affect the surface but at this time today both lots can be used for parking.

Paving is planned for next week on the north and west lots, possibly Monday, but again this is dependent on the weather.

The open trenched areas are still in the parking lot, please be careful when parking and walking.


June 3, 2016

The new concrete curbs and walkways are in.  There are still open trenched areas in the parking lot, please be careful when parking and walking.  Additional work will be postponed for a short while to allow the new concrete to cure.

Please be careful and watch your step.


May 27, 2016

Reconstruction of the lot began this week.  Curb areas throughout the lot have been removed resulting in open trenched areas and some debris.  Barriers have been placed by these open areas so be aware if parking or walking near by.  All main entrances are still accessible. Please be careful and watch your step.  



May 20, 2016

The parking lot construction will be starting soon, possibly next week.  

Start Date: The exact date is to be determined.  But we will let you know as soon as it is set. 

Accessibility: The church will be accessible during the entire project

Length of Project: 2 to 3 weeks




May 6, 2016

I am pleased to announce that the SPC has approved to move ahead with parking lot reconstruction this summer with Nagle Paving Company.  The plan will include rebuilding the foundation, leveling, resurfacing and improving entrance and walkways.  Project costs and funding plans will be discussed in detail at the Spring Congregational meeting on May 15th.  The paving will occur this summer, specific dates to be determined.  We will communicate specific logistics for temporary alternative parking locations for Sunday mornings once dates have been determined.
