Important Announcement!

The Trustees have requested a special church-wide meeting on Sunday, July 31st to address a major issue with our facility. The whole church is invited to be a part of the discussion and solution.

Our current sanctuary was built almost 65 years ago. Through the years the stained glass windows have developed severe structural issues. These include cracks and bowing of the glass and metal framework as well as deterioration of the lead came. Caulking has dried up and pulled away from the windows. Even the minor repairs that have been made through the years have failed. Recognizing these issues, the Board of Trustees has asked for and received several bids from contractors to restore and preserve our beautiful windows.

On July 31st, after a 10-minute break following worship, we are asking everyone to gather back in the sanctuary to hear a presentation by the Soos Stained Glass Company on the restoration and rebuilding of the windows. The Trustees will then present their recommendation on how to move forward.

Following these presentations, we will adjourn to the Activities Center for a chicken and dumplings lunch to allow members to discuss the proposals. Then there will be members only vote to either accept or reject the Trustees' recommendation. All are invited to the presentation and meal, but only members of the church will be allowed to vote.

For more information please contact Rev. Patrick McPherson, or any of the members of the Board of Trustees.
