Summer 2017

 

HUGH=S VIEWS

          We will be having one service at 9:00 am for all of July and August plus the first Sunday in September.  The windows will be open and following the service the deacons will be hosting a coffee hour in Fellowship Hall.  Enjoy!

 

TEMPERATURE CONTROL!

          We are working hard to bring together all the parts of our heating / cooling puzzle for the sanctuary and offices and MacNeill Room and nursery.  Right now we are working toward a “ductless” system of a heat pump for the sanctuary – that will provide heat in the winter and cool in the summer.  We will then need a smaller oil firing boiler for the downstairs.  Variables include dismantling and removing the old unit; rebuilding the crumbling chimney; adding a new chimney liner; installing whatever system we choose to use.

          Between the fundraising walk and generous individual giving, we have raised over $5000 and we estimate at this point that we will need about $30,000. You may make gifts, extra-mile gifts, to “Sanctuary Temperature Control” (mark your envelope or memo line of your check).  Your generosity is welcome.

 

MINER’S BASEBALL GAME

          You have until July 1st to indicate your desire to attend this game at the end of July, the 29th, 7:00 pm.  Email Cris Bream or call her, bream1@optonline.net or 973.219.0743
