SUNDAY SCHOOL RENOVATION PROJECT

 

 

The Church Council has approved the

renovation of the Sunday School Wing. 

 

There are various cosmetic changes that will be made to include painting, ceiling tiles, flooring and lighting.

 

We will be doing the work ourselves which

will save the congregation a considerable amount of money. 

 

This project will be done in phases as we address paint, lighting and ceiling tiles in each room.                               

Then, we will install new flooring throughout the whole wing.

 

The first room we will work on is the smallest classroom and the cost will be $ 450.00.

 

Donations are above and beyond regular giving and can be made to the repair fund. 

                                                

As we continue working in the Sunday School wing, each stage will be more expensive but we know that with God's help and grace, we will meet our goals.

 


 

SOLDIER BOXES

 

If you know of a soldier who is still serving in Iraq or Afghanistan         (or who needs a pick me up), please give their names and addresses to Regina Laird or Mary Busch.  

 

We have some articles we would like to send and we do not want to forget their sacrifice.

 


PRAYER REQUEST FORMS

We are implementing a new form for Prayer Requests.  The forms are located on the Welcome Desk and on the table in the Narthex. 

 

We hope by using these new forms, we will be able to manage the Prayer List more efficiently.

FINANCIAL REPORT

 

Our January - June report, shows our general fund has had expenses exceed receipts by      $ 11,895.  Historically, we seem to keep our general fund in a deficit balance for most of the year but this will be carefully watched so it does not get too large.

 

 

Thank you for your many contributions of time, talents, and funds.

 


 

Those of you who are in need of Offering Envelopes, there is a sign-up sheet on the table in the Narthex.
