June Council Actions Synopsis
PARSONAGE CENTRAL AC
After the Memorial Gift Board approved a 10:1 funding of the $5,000 General Fund support of the Bott Major Repair Fund for 2021 there were sufficient funds to install the two-zone central air system in the parsonage as proposed by Energy Star Services. The work began on June 3 and was completed by June 18.
CHURCH VAN SALE
The church van was officially sold to Greenest Home Inc., owned and operated by Sebastian Downs, husband of Pauline Worusski, and the funds were deposited into the Dedicated Account Van Fund. Council will discuss at their September meeting how future use of the Kathryn Davis Trust will be utilized for ministry now that the van ministry has not been in operation in some time and the bequest documents given not restrictions on how the funds are to be used for
CONFERENCE ROOM 112 VIRTUAL MEETING RECONFIGURATION
After receiving two bids from local companies that were much higher than anticipated the Memorial Gift Board declined to support the reconfiguration at such a high price tag. However, a member of the Board who is knowledgeable in such reconfigurations will be working with church leadership to provide a more economical solution that will allow for virtual participation during meetings and classes that are held live and in person in the Conference Room 112.
Pastor Wayne & Kate Say “Thank You” for Parsonage AC!
Dear Council, Memorial Gift Board, and Congregation, Kate and I wish to offer our sincere and deepest appreciation for funding the installation of a two-zone central air-conditioning system in the parsonage. With the failure of the two ductless units donated by our neighbor 14 years ago that my father and I installed, we knew the time had come to decide whether to continue cooling the parsonage by separate units in some rooms or take the leap and install a more efficient and effective system of central air. The high velocity zone on the second and third floor is quiet and cools all the rooms rather than one being an icebox and another an oven, and the conventional zone on the first floor makes it possible to watch television without the volume cranked up double just to hear it above the wall unit. We are truly thankful and hope all the work we do on a regular basis to improve and maintain the parsonage house and grounds is an indication of our appreciation as well. Stay cool this summer. Thanks to you all we will too!
–Pastor Wayne and Kate Zschech
