When we had to shut down our church services seven months ago, we never really dreamed that it was going to be so long before we got to meet together again.
The building that we were in shut down totally because of the virus, and so it’s been a really long time since we have all been together.
It’s been hard, but one good thing that has come out of it has been the fact that we had time to have the heating, cooling, and ventilation system in the church completely overhauled by our commercial HVAC company. We meet in a really large building and we have to have several commercial heating and cooling units to supply the auditorium, the offices, and the classrooms. Before we stopped meeting there earlier this year, we knew that we were going to have to get the entire HVAC system upgraded. There were always problems coming up with the furnace and the central air conditioning system. The commercial HVAC company that we contract to do the work for the church told us that it was going to be a really big, time consuming project for them. They even told us that we would have to close down parts of the building to get the work done. At that time, we freaked out because we didn’t want to have to close the church for any length of time whatsoever. But then since we had to shut down anyway, it ended up being the perfect time for us to get the HVAC system updates totally completed.
