Mid-Week Message, September 12th
Over 100 years ago, our church was built. Here we are all these years later worshiping in this amazing building. We all understand the awesome responsibility that calls us to care for this magnificent structure. Good stewardship requires proper management. We need to ask, “Is it time to take on a project of this magnitude?” There is a season for all things and the most successful building projects occur when we realize that the calling is in the present. It is time to “arise and build.” Or, in our case, it is time to re-roof. We have had amazing longevity from our roof and its systems. However, the life-expectancy of the surfaces has expired. The “talk” of doing a roofing project goes back many years and we are now in a position to do the necessary work and provide for the future. Think about it, with a new roof lasting over eighty-five years, the next one will be due about 2104. We have done our research, we have made good-faith attempts to engage roofing contractors, and we are ready to make a decision. If you would like to hear more about the plans for proceeding with the project, there will be an informational meeting on Tuesday, September 18th, at 6:30 p.m. in Memorial Hall. Members of the buildings and grounds roofing subcommittee will make a brief presentation and answer your questions. In the meantime, if you have questions, please feel free to contact me.
