“Redeeming the Time” - It has been a year since this ministry started which provides a framework for relationships and friendships to build across generations. If you are interested in adopting someone in our church or community, please sign up at either bulletin board.  For questions about “Redeeming the Time” please see Sis. Tina Leman.

Replacement of the Cooling System - The trustees have been informed that the main chiller for the church's cooling system needs to be replaced. The chiller is 50 years old and a substantial amount of maintenance money is being spent on it each year to keep it in operating condition. Even with these repairs and because of it's age, there is always a chance that it could fail in the near future. Since these continual repairs are costly and increasing from year to year, the trustees agree that it is time to replace it with a new one that will be more efficient and useful over time. It would also be reassuring to have it connected to the new control system and installed for when Roanoke hosts the conference next summer. The low bid for a replacement chiller is approx. $80,000. Since our church’s by-laws state that any expenditure over $50,000 must be approved by a vote of the congregation, the trustees will need your vote of approval to go forward with this project. The cost of a new chiller exceeds the balance in the building fund so a special collection will be needed in the near future. There is a separate ballot box for the chiller replacement located on the same table as the SS teachers ballot box. Please fill out 2 separate ballots, 1 for Sunday School teachers and 1 for the main chiller replacement.

Looking Ahead

Apostolic Christian Home for the Handicapped Job Openings - three Resident Services Directors are retiring in the coming months.  Additional information is on the bulletin board.
