The steeple went up on Friday, October 13, and we have a couple of videos of the event if you are interested. Both are on YouTube, or you can watch them in the gallery below.
Crews were ready and waiting early, and the crane arrived an hour before expected, so everything came together quickly and without incident. The weather was cooperative, if a little chilly, with one brief sprinkling of rain. As the cross was mounted on the top of the steeple, the clouds broke momentarilly (which you can see in the timelapse video below).
And so, as you've probably noticed, our building looks much more like a church, and you can see the cross from University. It was an exciting morning; seeing visible, dramatic change in such a short span was an encouragement.
Praise God for his everlasting faithfulness!
