In anticipation of our 100 year anniversary our church is initiating a fundraising campaign to raise $50,000 which will allow us to perform several much needed upgrades to our sanctuary. These funds will be used to refurbish the original early 20th century ceilings, resurface the original hardwood flooring, and replace any existing carpeting. In addition, we are planning to increase the size of our chancel which history has indicated is too small for the performance of our two ecumenical musical events that are performed every year.
Working around the weddings, funerals and events that are held in the church is going to be a challenge, but we anticipate this work to take place over a six week period and our hope is to perform the work during the summer months as this is a time that Sunday service can be performed at our sister church in Eady. The expansion of the chancel area will be performed first, then pews will be removed and stored so that painters can bring in their hoists to perform the necessary tin ceiling restoration. When they are completed, this next phase will see the hardwood refinishers sand and resurface all the hardwood floors. Then pews can be reinstalled and new carpets can come in. The expectation of the time period will likely be over six weeks.
