I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. - Philippians 4:13
I want to begin by thanking everyone for their participation in the Capital Campaign. I am particularly grateful to John Owen for chairing the committee. Lisa Breda, Bill Dunham, Tom Dwyer and Doug Taber also provided leadership and we are grateful for their efforts. The initial in-gathering of the Capital Campaign provided more than fifty commitments totaling over $660,000.
These commitments are more than enough to accomplish the three stated priorities: renovations to the Upper Building, improvements in the classrooms, and the HVAC controller. Work in the classrooms is underway and work on the Upper Building should begin soon. The vestry is coordinating with Myler Construction as we refine the scope of work to fit the commitments received to date.
Further commitments will allow for the expansion of priorities. Our small group sessions revealed that sound and lighting in the nave were a high priority for many. Accessibility improvements, like automated door openers, were also of importance. We expect to publish more information about this process as it continues.
