Master Plan Update

Our renovated Church House got a Christmas season workout over the past month and we have moved from fixing things to learning how to operate the new systems.

The Lund Hall lights can now all be dimmed, thanks to the electricians correcting a factory wiring error affecting the chandeliers. The next step is learning how to program the controls to meet our needs.

The power assisted doors from the terrace to the Sanctuary are now repaired and operating for easier access to the Sanctuary. We have three doors which are locked and unlocked on a programmed schedule (Terrace, main Church House, and kitchen), and hope we will soon add the fourth planned door (the exterior entrance to the children's classroom area). Ruth and Larry are responsible for programming the doors each week (based on the Calendar of activity) and that process is becoming routine.

We now are able to use our building management system to control our heating, ventilation and air conditioning equipment. In January, the supplier will do some additional training to help up us operate the system cost efficiently while maintaining comfort levels when the Church House is in use.

As our Construction Manager, AP Construction, completes its work and submits its final billings, we continue to expect total project costs to be about $4.8M. When those who committed to the Capital Campaign complete their commitments over the coming year, we will be able to report that the project was completed without incurring long term debt, though we are making short term use of our line of credit.
