Maintenance Project Update - The trustees want to thank everyone for the great support on the 2 maintenance projects. With over 200 ballots cast there was unanimous support for the outside brick maintenance and a strong majority for replacing the hall carpet. As mentioned, we have set aside 2 Sundays Sept. 22 and Sept 29 for a special building fund collection or you can give online. There will be no scheduled Sunday School collection this year. The outside work is scheduled to begin this fall and we will proceed with carpet replacement as funds permit.
