Hallway Carpet Project Update -  As we began work on selecting the carpet, we saw the need to consider how it would match with future carpet replacement in the assembly room and realized there were additional areas of the church that should be considered for improvement, including the assembly room benches and possible installation of permanent risers as well as the assembly room carpeting.  We have decided to place the hallway carpet on hold while we compile more information on these possible improvements which we will then present to the church to assess the level of support these projects would have from our congregation. We have begun the work of identifying these items and getting cost estimates and hope to be able to have a presentation for the church in the next few months.  We welcome any comments or suggestions that any may have.

Prayer - Haiti well drilling team (Bros Luke Fischer, Caleb Leman, Sam Wettstein, Rich Lindberg) left for Haiti on March 5th.
