Church Coffee Hour
The Church Council Is meeting today to finalize the plan to start the coffee hour on Sunday after Services. The details regarding the plan will be in next week’s bulletin. All CDC regulations will be followed.
.Message from the Church Council President
Our heating System is not functioning properly now. We have 4 furnaces, 2 for sending heat to the Church and 2 for the downstairs hall. They work in pairs. One furnace without any question must definitely be replaced.
I have made contact over the last 2 weeks with 4 companies who will give us their viewpoints on what is practical to do and provide us with estimates. Father Vladimir and I meet with the reps from the companies by appointment only. This is a busy time for furnace installations.
When we receive the estimates, the Church Council will look at them and give their input and finally, it will vote to make a decision on who will do the job. We also learned from the reps that if the furnace overworks to support the one that is not working, it tends to melt a metal plate which affects the AC.
We must do this in the summer. We learned by experience that we cannot depend on a faulty furnace to take us through the winter again.
Once we determine the cost of this project, it will be made known to all.
We all feel good to come to Church and be warm in the Winter and we are comfortable having the Air Conditioning in the warmer months.
When we begin this project, the Church Council feels it will support the financial standing of the Church if everyone, not only official members, make a contribution towards the new furnace installation.
If anyone has any questions or concerns, I’ll be glad to speak to you.
God Bless You All.
