Last month our update included a list of those capital campaign projects that will be completed in 2019.  Work has begun on the first 3 projects listed: replace grounds equipment, purchase Sanctuary A/V equipment, and install keycard entry at Bell Street.

 

Jake will be doing his happy dance now that the church has purchased a weed wacker.  It’s perfect timing because the much-desired warmer weather is also bringing the weeds!  In addition, we will soon receive a 3rd proposal for the installation of a keycard entry system.  Comparing 3 proposals will allow Amy Eugene, our Senior Director of Operations, to choose the best one for our situation.

 

In the meantime, a preferred vendor has been chosen from proposals submitted to upgrade the audio/visual equipment in our Sanctuary.  The new equipment will include a projector and a confidence monitor.  A confidence monitor is a screen that faces the Chancel that is easily visible to someone facing the pews – making it easier to see what is being projected onto the screen behind them.  The recent Lenten Sketches, which our music program presented on Maundy Thursday, is the perfect example of how we are using visuals to better connect with folks in our congregation.  This photo gives a comparative look at the difference between what we see now (top) and what will be available with the new projector (bottom) – a larger and crisper picture.

 

New audio/visual equipment for the Sanctuary was included in the Rejoice & Renew Capital Campaign goals. Thanks to the TNT COMMITTEE, we will also have upgraded A/V equipment in the Fellowship Hall!!  All that hard work has raised a record number of dollars at the TNT sale and the committee has approved using some of the proceeds to pay for a new A/V system in the Fellowship Hall.  Have you been to a meeting, event reception, or Wondrous Wednesday in the past year or two when the A/V didn’t work there? Or have you seen a leader or presenter spend the first 15 minutes of an event trying to get a presentation to appear on the screen?  Thanks to TNT, there is help in sight!!  Our audio/visual offerings in Fellowship Hall will now include a much-

needed projector and new screen.  Hip Hip Hooray!!

 

It is such a delight to see our Church family wrapped around the spirit of the capital campaign.  We are taking care of our church, as it has taken care of us over the years.  Thanks be to God!

THE CAMPAIGN PRAYER

 

Life-giving God, 
All that we are and all that we have are gifts from you, 
to do your will and extend your Dominion here on earth.  
Make us eternally grateful.  
Ignite within us joyous enthusiasm. 
Inspire us to respond exuberantly to the needs of Federated.  
Fill us with generosity that we may share these gifts from you 
sacrificially, cheerfully and proportionally. 
Lead us to do your will in our pledging to this campaign.
Enable us to rejoice in your grace,  
and renew Federated’s ministries and missions.  
Remind us that where our treasure is, our hearts are also.  
Shepherd us to fulfill your desire in all that we are and do. 

Amen.
