Thanks to all our Volunteers

Many hours of time were donated to turn the COG Sanctuary into a fabulous multi-purpose room. The Sanctuary was the main worship area for Grace for 40 years.  During that time many lives were changed and many friendships were created in this room.  Look over the pictures to see how far this space has come and just imagine how many more wonderful things can happen there.

HUGE, HUGE, HUGE thanks goes to the volunteers that came to the Center and spent many hours, and in some cases many days making this happen.  Jerry Albright (who took on the unofficial job of foreman), Brad Delay (the pew guru), JT Land (who redid the lighting in the room), Cliff Flowers, Tom McCormally, Liz Newman, Walt Cooper, Loosha Quick, Vincent Quick, Amy Nadler. Gary Hunerdosse, Bill Sedgwick, Michael Biasella, Linda Cooper, Kim Stith, Mann Gutierrez, Jo Hunerdosse, Mary Beth Vega, Phil Mein, Kathie Pelan, Chris Pelan, Mark Sunderson, Lorene Boyd, Gary Chura and Miguel Ruelas.  I am sure that names were missed due to all the different work dates, so please forgive the omission and know that you are appreciated.

Great thanks also goes to everyone that gave at Grace Extravaganza.  Without your gifts this could not have happened!
