Sanctuary Pews

At last Wednesday’s meeting, the Board of Trustees approved the purchase of solid oak pews from the Assembly of God Church (AOG) in Caney. They will be refinished and fitted with new ends custom made to resemble those of the original pews. Once complete they will replace the theater seats in the lower level of the sanctuary.

The trustees discussed several issues regarding the installation of pews:

  • Many of the current theater seats are badly in need of repair.
  • The cost of purchasing and refinishing the pews from the Caney AOG will be approximately half that of buying new pews while providing substantial environmental benefits.
  • Pews are safer and more comfortable for small children.
  • The aisle layout will be retained, but made wider.
  • Spaces for wheelchairs we be provided throughout.
  • Seat cushions will be available.
