Great news, we have received a grant from the DNR once again to assist with the restoration of our bricks. Some of you may have noticed ads in the Journal and Courier advertising for bids to complete the west elevation of the church; this bidding process is a requirement of the grant. We are currently in the bid review process and will announce the contract as soon as possible. Work on the west elevation will begin sometime in late August or September.
You may have noticed carpet has been removed from the parlor and a new sub-floor is down. This floor will remain the only flooring until after the paint has been removed. A licensed contractor will remove lead paint on all wood surfaces in the parlor. This process will take two weeks and will begin in August. As soon as the paint is removed we will install new flooring and have new furniture delivered, so that the room will be ready for use in early September. As part of the parlor renovation, we have also converted the hallway between the parlor and sanctuary into a closet.
A new ramp door has been ordered and will be installed in the next couple weeks, along with repaired side glass for this door.
The labyrinth has been removed and sod will replace it as phase 1 of the garden refurbishing begins. We will work to create a welcoming, safe space.
Finally, our maintenance team works most Friday and Saturday mornings, and always has room for one more. If you’re
concerned about the skills required, they have tasks for every skill level and would love to have you join them.
