CENTREVILLE — An ex­panded park­ing lot around the Centreville United Methodist Church has been com­pletely paved at a cost of $71,000.

Henry Cov­ing­ton, chair­man of the board of trus­tees, said the cost has been paid in full by the church and the con­trac­tor was R.L. Ewing of Eas­ton.

Pas­tor Mark Far­nell, speak­ing to the con­gre­ga­tion gath­ered at the back park­ing lot af­ter church ser vices Sun­day, cut a rib­bon with Cov­ing­ton to sig­nify the com­ple­tion of the project.

Far­nell said, in part, “I am very happy that the church mem­ber­ship was able to get to­gether to have this work done and hold fundrais­ers to get it com­pleted with­out debt.”

The park­ing, in front, sides and to the rear of the church, also in­cludes paving for an over­flow lot be­hind the par­son­age next door. It also in­cludes more over­head light­ing, new curb­ing and ex­panded hand­i­capped park­ing spa­ces.

As­sist­ing with the cer­e­mo­nial rib­bon-cut­ting were other trus­tees, Guy Pilli, Joan Dawkins and Margie Booze; also Todd Turner, chair­man of the church fi­nance com­mit­tee.

The church mem­ber­ship held its an­nual pic­nic fol­low­ing the rib­bon-cut­ting.
