Special Congregational Meeting

Dear Friends in Christ,

This letter is an invitation to a special congregational meeting on Sunday, October 25, 2020, immediately following the parking lot worship service which begins at 10:15 a.m.

The purpose of the meeting is to vote on replacing existing plumbing which is currently leaking. Galvanized piping has rusted through and leaks, mainly in the basement. Attached are pictures of some of the problems, especially the leaks into electrical boxes. At the meeting, the Building & Grounds Committee members will discuss the problems and the solutions to rectify the problems. The treasurer will discuss ways we can pay for this project.

The cost of repairing plumbing is $55,000. Remember that our church was built in 1959, 60 years ago. No plumbing works like this has been done.

As per our constitution, a congregational meeting is required for expenditures over $15,000.

If anyone would like to make a donation to this project, please mark “Plumbing Project” on your donation.

I hope to see everyone on Sunday, October 18 to discuss this very important project.


Greg Yuvan

Church Council President
