Last fall the congregation voted to initiate a project to improve the accessibility and visibility of the main entrance. The Building Oversight Committee (BOC) was formed in January and given several goals. The first goal was to develop a design and cost estimate for the project. The following is the deliverable to support the goal.
2 sets of double doors on the west and east sides
Automated handicap access
"Bumped out" entrances (see floor plan)
West side portico extends to the sidewalk curb
How Shady Oaks Baptist Church Has Grown:
The committee dug into the photo archives and found a series of pictures that represent the growth of our church over the last 60+ years. The photos are in the presentation file.
1959 - Tent in the backyard at 200 Bedford Euless Road, Hurst
1960 - Land purchased
1961 - A-Frame building constructed

35 years since we have made a major improvement to our building -- IT'S TIME.
Costs are currently estimates. Costs will not lock down until contracts are signed. Contingency has been added to estimate any cost changes between now and when the contracts are signed.
Budget & Finance Committee Information:
We can cover the increased monthly debt payment if 250 Giving Units (Tithers) give an extra $3 per month.
