Our Building Renovation Plan
UPDATE - June, 2017

The Building Renovation Team is pleased to share the news that Callori, the architect, and Phelps Construction, the contractor, have been working on revised plans and have received positive feedback from the town of River Edge.  We have contracted the services of a mechanical engineering firm to produce the plans needed for the final construction documents and have been in contact with the UCC regarding construction financing.  New drawings and renderings of the revised project will be ready to share with the congregation in the near future. 

Stay tuned for updates as we move toward beginning construction on this much-needed renovation!

UPDATE - On June 12th, a congregational meeting was held for the purpose of discussing and approving needed authorization to procedure with the Building Renovation.  We are pleased to announce that the congregation unanimously approved the resolution required to proceed



THE PLAN


Our renovation plan will allow us to continue to provide diverse worship, education and compassionate care for all.  It will allow us to strengthen our outreach ministry and extend our mission and vision both locally and globally.


THE PLAN INCLUDES:


  • Adding an elevator to allow access to all levels of the church building, making it completely barrier free. 
  • Bringing the building up to code for utilities, fire safety and accessibility.
  • Remodeling all restrooms and the Fellowship Hall kitchen.
  • Providing state-of-the-art classrooms and meeting spaces.
  • Remodeling the Continental Avenue side of the building for accessibility, efficiency and appearance. 
  • Enlarging the sanctuary narthex and vestibule.
