At the beginning of September, a group of folks met to determine: Capital Campaign Projects - Where Are We Now? Keith Mast, Becky Gruss, Amy Eugene, Laura Taylor, and Janis Stefanchik met to make sure that we are keeping track of all campaign payments that are coming in, and the progress of each capital campaign project that was approved by Church Council. We are blessed that after 1 ¾ years, the church has already received more than 86% of the cash pledged during the capital campaign. You made this happen and we are grateful!
At this point in the campaign, funds received are being used for capital projects, including: continued transition to LED light bulbs, repairing westside concrete steps, installing walk-off pads to protect our new carpet at all entrances, upgrading the a/v capabilities at the Family Life Center, installing a new key card entry system at Bell Street, and reupholstering/refurbishing the conference room chairs. In addition, a different type of project is being supported. During the planning of the campaign, we realized that the funds put aside in the past for major maintenance items had been depleted over the years. Thus, a priority at this stage is re-establishing Deferred Major Maintenance Funds for when we need to: replace the HVAC system of the Bell Street education wing, replace an HVAC system at the Family Life Center, and cover other major maintenance expenditures.
This group of people, as well as the Finance Committee, Properties Committee, and church operations staff are continuing to meet to make sure that we remain good stewards of the capital campaign funds. A hearty thanks to all of them and you
