Sunday, July 30, was a beautiful day, unusually mild in temperature and humidity, under a clear blue sky, sunny but not glaring. About 400 of you stayed after the second worship service to mark the official beginning of our building project and renovation.

Participating were ministry leaders, founding members of @chapelhillbible, and representatives of current and future ministries. Our architect team and general contractor team were with us as honored guests. We prayed, sang, applauded, and of course put our shovels into the dirt.

Thanks to everyone who took time to stay for the ceremony, who spoke encouragement and appreciation to us afterwards, and who have supported this project with your ideas, your prayers, your questions, your attention, your finances, your words and emails, all along the way.
