HVAC Fundraising Update

We are doing very well on our fundraising toward the Heating/Air Conditioning unit that services the (West) Community Building. Because the unit had to be replaced immediately, we decided to expend the monies from our savings and to fundraise to offset those costs. The HVAC unit actually cost us about $23,500. To date (12/21/17), including individual donations and fundraisers, we have raised approximately $21,500. We are almost there! Our hope is that a few more fundraisers and a few more direct donations will bring us much closer to the total by the end of 2017.

Various ministries have coordinated fundraising efforts so far:

Council - Spaghetti Dinner = raised $1100
Shepherds Staff - Buona Beef = raised $200
VBS - Bake Sale = raised $200
Church Health Team - Pizza/Pie Coupon Sale = raised $600 (still in process)

Stewardship - Oktoberfest Event - upcoming

The HVAC unit is critical for the functioning of our west building, which is used primarily for COMMUNITY organizations like Boy & Girl Scouts, and the always-busy St. Cyprian's Food/Clothing Pantry. Our ability to provide adequate care and maintenance for that building is critical for our partners in ministry who use the space. This new unit will also make the Ministry Center building more energy and cost-efficient.

Many of you have already donated, but it is not too late to make another donation to support this important work. Please be sure to use an envelope labelled HVAC (there are extras at church if you need one).
