I'm excited because we just completed phase one of our Orchard Kids environment makeover! This is the space where our elementary aged students gather each weekend as well as our jr high & sr high students on Wednesday and Sunday nights.
It's the second major makeover for this space since 2003 and I can still remember how amazing it felt when we changed it to "Wahabu Land." Now....I'm feeling that all over again and we're not even finished yet! The next phase will include new flat panel TV's.....theatrical style lighting.....new carpet.....new (larger) screen....staging upgrades, etc....etc..... It's going to be incredible!
And of course, this is all the result of a whole lot of people's generous giving, creativity, labor, and lots and lots and lots and lots....of LOVE! I'm telling you...the Ochard Community is an amazing place. I'm so thankful to be a part of it.
Also - if you have any ideas for names for this space, let us know! Leave a comment or email us at: info(AT)orchardvalleyonline(dot)com. Think urban/SNL type feel when it's all said and done. And oh yeah, if we use your idea we'll do something cool for you!
