PMC President's Report

May 2024

I want to take this opportunity to update you on several projects that are
happening this month at church. At the recommendation of the Building and Grounds Committee, the Trustees approved the replacement of the chiller located outside the Christian Education/Lifestyle Academy wing. The chiller was installed soon after the church was built to keep the wing cool in the summer. The replacement of the chiller will occur sometime this month. The process has already begun and should be completed before the end of May.

 

If you have been in the gym lately, you might have noticed many of the tiles on the floor have become loose. Each week more and more tiles have been popping up. In working to resolve this issue, we learned the glue and tiles have asbestos. Building and Grounds committee has recommended that the tiles and the glue be removed through the process of asbestos abatement. The trustees have approved a bid and a qualified company has been contracted to undertake this project. The project is scheduled to begin May 20th and will take 1-2 weeks to complete. During this time the gym will be completely sealed off and no one will be able to enter this area. We want to assure no one is exposed to the asbestos during the removal process. A plan for the refinishing of the floor will be identified once this is completed.
 

At the October Congregational meeting funds were allocated for capital
improvement. These funds are being used to cover these two projects. The cost of these projects is using a majority of this money. Should other issues arise this coming year, we may need to come to the congregation to identify alternative ways to fund these additional projects.

 

In an effort to meet ADA requirements, the center sanctuary doors were modified to have an automatic opener.

 

As you may or may not know, the old blue church van has been sold because it was beyond repair. Additionally, the decision was made to sell the church trailer.
 

Game Night continues to grow and over 60 people attended this past month's event. The music program, Music, The Language of Faith, was a wonderful evening. Both of these events were suggested by members of our congregation. Thank you to all the people who made these great events happen.
 

Unfortunately, the weather put a damper on the Blessing of the Motorcycles event. It was great to see those people who made it to the event to have their
motorcycles blessed and to pray for their safety this year. Thank you to everyone who welcomed them to our church and to Joey's Food Truck which added a fun element to the event. To help cover some of the cost of the food truck a 50/50 raffle occurred. This is one of the ways the Outreach Committee is looking at bringing new people to our church. We are looking to identify more opportunities to showcase what a beautiful and vibrant church we have in this community.

 

We will soon be hosting a UCC conference event. It will be focused on ChurchStewardship. We look forward to showing other churches in our conference our beautiful church.
 

I look forward to our congregation completing the "Season of Visioning" process under the leadership of Pastor Moore. it is exciting to participate in the planning of the future vision of our church. Please continue to attend the brief sessions after our church service.
