As the weather will soon turn warm, I want to update you on the status of our air conditioner repairs. The work is underway; the piping is being replaced. Unfortunately, we recently received word that a computer chip, crucial to the operation of the air conditioner, is not available. This is due to a supply chain delay caused by skyrocketing demand, the pandemic and other factors.
We are developing contingency plans so that we will be prepared when the weather warms. We intend to move our services to the Heritage Hall beginning the third Sunday in May. We will not return to the gymnasium during this period to protect the equipment. The constant moving of equipment, that has contributed to the quality of our worship services (in-house and virtually), causes damage. Utilizing Heritage Hall will minimize these issues. We will continue to update you on the air conditioner repairs as information becomes available.
As the protocol requirements in this Covid era seem to change constantly, we want to ensure our membership is aware of our procedures. We will continue to require masks for all worship services. We also will require proof of vaccination. Please remember to always carry your card with you. This pandemic has worked a hardship on all of us. As your leaders—pastor, deacons, trustees—we will continue to make every effort to ensure the safety of all our members. We are aware that these protocols are challenging. Please remember that eventually, this will end. As Deacon Hall is fond of saying, “Let’s keep it all in God’s hands.”
