The State of our Facilities
With the necessity of a shut-down of our church since April 2020, few people have been on campus in the last year and a half, but rest assured, there is still much happening there. The Facilities Team, among others, has been busy accomplishing improvements and planning for the future.
The Children’s Center has continued to operate, our Administrator, Mary Wiese, has faithfully attended to our needs; Rev. Bethany has become a mother while continuing to improve her pastoral skills and knowledge; and our faithful custodian, Jesus, has kept the buildings attended.
Whenever we are able to be “at church” once again, take time to notice some of the improvements: A new bulletin board outside the office, a plaque on the bell tower noting the dedication of the tower to Martin Luther King, Jr., on January 1971, new paint on many surfaces, the bench in the patio dedicated in memory of Byron Skinner—these are the more noticeable improvements, but there are many other small and still important changes. Maintenance and improvement tasks continue to take place.
One of the biggest projects is yet to be accomplished, and a Congregational Meeting is planned for Sunday, October 24, over Zoom, to present the details of this. It will be a major improvement to our campus, and it requires input from our members before approval of the Congregation and the Board. Stay tuned for further information and details! And mark your calendar with the date.
