The GraceWorks building, dubbed “Grace Place,” has received all new metal side doors, had electrical wiring installed, and the bathrooms, kitchen, and St. Stephen’s Love Laundry room have all been rough-plumbed. Also, at least one side of all walls has been sheet-rocked. The sanctuary has a new ceiling, and the chancel and the pews are being refurbished. The inside and outside ramps have been completed. We are waiting on the heating/air installation and then our final city inspection. After the inspection, the rest of the sheetrock can go up, and each room can be completed for occupancy. Volunteers from St. Stephen’s, and St. Mary’s, along with St. Luke’s youth, members of Holy Cross Church in Trussville, GraceWorks participants, and a dedicated group of men from several churches who have worked every Thursday throughout the year have played a major role in the restoration of the building.
