***Back in January of 2015, we designated the third Sunday of each month as our “Building Fund Offering” Sunday. On these days, there will be the opportunity for people to give an offering, over and above our regular tithes/offerings, for our re-modeling program.
***The remodeling work on the sanctuary, excepting the work on our punch list for the builder to address, is done. It looks good!!! During the remodeling process, we were blessed with people in the church providing us with a new motorized projection screen, a new chandelier for the new foyer, matching lamps for the foyer, new fans for the sanctuary and many other needed gifts to get our building looking good. To these “extra generous” donors, thank you!!! A really big “Thank You” goes to all who helped clear the sanctuary for the remodeling process to begin and for those who came to help move everything back into the sanctuary getting the room ready for worship. And, a huge “Thank you” to all who have faithfully and regularly given to our building fund over this past two years. We will still continue to have our building fund offerings, collecting money, so we can plan on getting more of our aging building remodeled and so we hope you will and can continue giving to our building fund.

***Check out the various bulletin boards in our Fellowship Hall that we once had scattered in different spots in the church building. Some were hard to get to and read from and, so now, we have a bulletin board up for our mission news, one for our building news (the building plans are on that board now) and one where we post general news that the church family might find interesting.
