Our Sanctuary is Finished and the Pews are In!
What a blessing it is to be worshipping in our sanctuary at long last! Thank you to all who have made this renovation possible. Come join us in our beautiful new surroundings this Sunday. Looking ahead, we will be dedicating our “new sanctuary” and enjoying a congregational pot-luck dinner in the beginning of the year. Check bulletin announcement pages, weekly updates and the December/January Newsletter for details.
Check out the SOS thermometer marking the progress of our Capital Campaign which helped pay for our renovations as well as additional upgrades that still need to be done. Additional SOS envelopes available in church office and in the narthex.
Message from our Board of Trustees
A hearty thank you to all those who came out for the clean-up effort in May. The area outside in the front of the church was cleaned up, and a lot of overgrowth was removed. Special thanks to Hands Garden Center for their generous donation of mulch and weed barrier cloth. Several trustees and helpers spread mulch in that area last week. The front of the church is now more open and inviting. Once again the kitchen, Mott Hall and classrooms were cleaned out of excess material. Bob Darrah, with his trusted helpers, have moved cabinets from the little office and are installing them in Mott Hall. This will be the new “Coffee & Fellowship Area” for Sunday mornings. Thanks to Harry Rocheskey and Pastor David, screens have been repaired and replaced in the crawl space under the church. This will help to eliminate access for the Church Mouse’s family visitors. (Sorry about that Church Mouse.) Other changes are taking place in Mott Hall, so keep your eyes open, and if you have any ideas, please feel free to pass them on.
** Just a reminder that we are still looking for a few new faces to take a turn with the lawn mowing and to clean the church. Signup sheets are on the bulletin board in Mott Hall.**
