Update On Chapel

Monday saw two contractors visit the chapel to see the facility and with the plans put together bid to do the work. The insurance company requires 3 bids so we are waiting for another contractor to visit the facility and place a bid to do the work. The second furnace has been checked and deemed to be operable but as of now it has no power so will not be used until the electrical component of the repairs is done. Have spoke to a metal work company to have the duct work checked, cleaned and reconfigured but that work is available no sooner than 3 months from now. All contractors are very, very busy.

Chairs: We have received another sample of chairs for the fellowship hall. They are of a lesser size and design and have a price tag of $49.00 per chair. The material in the seat and back is identical with the sanctuary chairs so can be used for additional seating should that be needed,  for a larger than usual gathering. The sample chair will be at our service on Sunday for you to check out.

In addition 4 of us went to the chapel and washed down all the tables that we use in the fellowship hall. One of our tables was lost in the fire but we still have five of the heavy wooden ones and 4 of the lighter plastic ones.  There is still cleaning needed on a number of wooden pieces of furniture, which can be done another day.

The restoration company that put in place the construction fencing to help protect our building has ended paying for the fencing. We will now pay for it and bill the insurance company for ongoing protection of our facility.

God’s Richest blessing on you all. Look forward to seeing you all on Sunday.
