It has been determined by the Trustees that one of the three 20-year-old heating and air units that supply the Fellowship Hall is completely dead and the other two are having problems supplying the area with heat and air. They have obtained 7 bids and made a motion at the recent business meeting on December 4, 2019 to accept the bid by Keltner Contracting for $15,500 to replace all three units and the rusty pipes. The Constitution and By-Laws mandate that the motion be tabled until the church membership can be notified of this in the church bulletin and vote on it at the next scheduled meeting because it is over $10,000 and less than $25,000. The vote will be taken on January 8, 2020 at the next scheduled monthly businness meeting.

Why Have a Safety/Security Team and Proactive Safety Protocols?Safety means taking reasonable measures to make the place(s) where we meet safe and to be ready to respond to various emergencies, whether natural (such as tornado, flooding), accidental (such as fire), medical (such as heart attack, stroke, fall), or secondary to a violent act. These are several reasons to form a Safety/Security Team or to form proactive safety protocols at church. Contact Mckenzie Hardin, Kaylene Poff, Sam Graham, Josh Veatch or any of the other team members for more information about the Safety/Security Team and to see how you can help. It is NOT a requirement to have a concealed carry license to participate in the program.
