YRM Meeting Hall Expansion

New YRM Addition

As most of you know, the meeting hall we currently use is original to our facility, built sixteen years ago when we were much smaller.

Many who visit are surprised at the relatively small size of our sanctuary. We have purposely waited to expand this room until needed. Currently, the meeting hall is no longer adequate for the Festivals. We are forced to split our congregation between the meeting hall and fellowship hall for services, with those in the fellowship hall forced to watch a video feed.

Also, our stage is far too small for our music ministry. This becomes even more apparent when we are celebrating the Feast of Tabernacles or Unleavened Bread. The stage is even too small for our weekly Sabbath, so it gets crazy during the Feasts. 

We also do not have enough room for our children’s classes or dining during the Feasts. We have a solution that has been factored into our current footprint. We are planning to expand our meeting hall (removing the back wall) and use our current sanctuary for expanded dining and, if needed, more meeting hall chairs during events. This will be an intermediate zone between fellowship and meeting areas. With this expansion, we will also have a basement, which will allow our children’s class to meet downstairs with more than enough space. Because of the cost and work involved, we will be building the expansion in two phases. We have several members who are skilled in construction and contracting. Some of the construction will be subbed out as well. We have already begun re-routing electric lines thanks to donations. 

Because we will be doing much of the work ourselves, we will be breaking this project into phases.

Phase 1 (COMPLETE) This phase required us to relocate the main electric line from an overhead line to a buried underground one. This phase is fully funded and is finished. 

Phase 2 (IN PROGRESS) This phase will consist of excavation, concrete work, framing the walls, and getting the roof up. Basically, the shell of the building. To get this 2nd phase done, we are estimating the cost to be 180k. We are going to start construction immediately and continue as funds allow.

Phase 3 will be interior framing, HVAC, electric, drywall, and all finish work. If all goes to plan, we hope to be on phase 3 at the beginning of 2025, even earlier, if we can raise the funds quickly.

New Expansion Floor Plans

You can see on the floor plans just how much bigger this new addition will be. A few problems with the current design are made evident when looking at these plans. 1st, there is a severe bottleneck in the bottom left where our current sanctuary meets the fellowship hall. With this new addition, we will be able to not only alleviate much of the congestion in this area. But nearly double both seating and dining space.

Main Meeting Hall Expansion

Here we have some 3D renders to help visualize what we are planning. We hope to nearly double the seating in the main sanctuary while doubling the seating for dining and other activities. 

*Renders were done by a 3rd party; final build is subject to change.

New Basement Expansion

Due to the way the land lies , we will also have to build out a full basement, but this will go a long way to help facilitate more dining, extra room for children’s classes, and extra storage. The security team will have their own space as well.

Abib Confirmed!

After reviewing the barley from the land of Israel and communicating with Brian Convery who has 20 years of experience of actively looking for the barley from Israel, YRM is ready to officially confirm that the March new moon on 3/14/21 will begin the month of Abib, i.e., the month of young ears of grain. We encourage all to look for and report any new moon sightings to YRM this Sunday.

Even though there are photos below of both domestic and wild barely, YRM only uses WILD barley to determine Abib. Also, all photos are courtesy of abibofgod.com

Cream Puffs Recipe

1 cup boiling water

1 cup flour

½ cup butter (1 stick)

3 eggs, unbeaten

1/8 teaspoon salt

Add butter and salt to boiling water and stir over medium heat until butter is melted and mixture boils again.

Add the flour, all at once, and stir vigorously until the mixture leaves the sides of the pot.

Remove from heat and let cool for about 20 minutes – THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT.

Transfer cooled mixture to a large mixing bowl. With an electric mixer, beat in one egg at a time, beating thoroughly after each addition.

Using a tablespoon, place dollops on an ungreased cookie sheet – you should have about 14 or 15 cream puffs.

Place the cookie sheet in the center of a preheated 450 degree oven for 20 minutes.

Without removing the cream puffs, turn the oven down to 350 degrees and bake for an additional 20 minutes.

Remove from oven and transfer puffs to a rack to cool. Cool thoroughly!

When the puffs are completely cooled, cut the top off of each puff and fill with vanilla pudding.

Frost the top with fudge frosting. You can change fillings or toppings of your choice.

It’s really good with chicken salad.
