During this past year, the Property Committee and Trustees identified a need to replace the shingles on the roof of the Church. Engineering consultants were engaged to provide assessment and recommendations to address the roof problems. After carefully and thoroughly considering all options, Council has decided that the shingles on the roof (over the sanctuary and office area) will be replaced, with High quality/40 year Vanguard shingles.
The Property committee received competitive bids from local contractors and have selected Fresh Homes Construction’s proposal for the project. The cost of the project is estimated to be $45,000., which will include the contract, plus any additional work required to replace the fascia, soffit issues and deteriorated wood. The Project start date is October 15, 2018.
Contractor requires a 50% deposit two weeks in advance of the start date.
In order to meet the costs of this major capital project, we are initiating a “Roof Repair Campaign”. We appreciate this is a significant cost and will take considerable support from the Congregation to accomplish. However, with your prayerful consideration we are confident that this project can be successfully funded. There are many ways to show your support of the project: donations will be accepted in the office, you can include them in your envelope givings, or add to your PAR givings; we also understand that you may wish to pledge your support over a period of time. You can even make a donation online through CanadaHelps.org.
Included with this letter is a pledge form to select your preference. Please return the form and/or your pledge to the Church by October 1, 2018, if possible.
We are pleased to report that over $29,000.00 has already been donated to this campaign! Please give as you are able and leave the rest in God’s hands.
You are the Church, We are the Church together.
