A Variety Pack

Our first week is  ‘in the books’ here at Dothan Community Church (DCC), and it was a good one!  Here’s a little recap –
Monday we ladies started out with decorating the sanctuary and narthex for Christmas. No big trees here, just some tasteful seasonal additions to an already lovely space!

The guys, meanwhile, were working over in the new (large) addition, installing the lights in the main hallway.

Tuesday we joined the guys in the new building and starting sanding walls.

It wasn’t difficult – just trying to smooth out any roughness that appeared after the primer was applied, so we just spread out, and sanded away!

And the guys got started  installing drop ceilings in the many side rooms.

Good job, guys!
Wednesday, well, Wednesday was a delight! Instead of picking up our sanding poles, we were driven to a local pregnancy center – Wiregrass Hope Pregnancy Center, where we were able to help with some basic care items – like repackaging diapers to be given away

or organizing baby clothes – also to be made available to moms!

It was a beautiful way to spend a Wednesday morning. This Care Center provides counseling, ultrasounds, connections to available resources, and all kinds of pre and post-natal care. We were honored to be included in their ministry!
Back at the new building the guys were continuing with that drop ceiling project – this time in a room with some crazy angles!

But of course, they were up to the challenge, and by the time we returned from our little off-site diaper counting, they were well on the way to wrapping up that room!

Thursday we ladies we back on sanding and clean-up duty

and the guys had moved to another (more rectangular) room!

So it was good first week on all fronts! The folks here have been so very welcoming, and one sweet member even gifted us each with a lovely pecan pie! We had sweet pie-eating community time each day as we shared in all that goodness!

Like I said – a very good week, indeed!
Hope y’all have a lovely weekend!
