Called Conference Set for THIS SUNDAY AFTERNOON,  April 11th to

Vote onFuture of Chapel Building

There will be a called church conference THIS Sunday afternoon, April 11th at 1:30pm in the Sanctuary to vote on a motion from the Deacons and the Buildings and Grounds committee to remove the chapel building from our campus.

Anyone wishing to go inside the chapel to view its current condition may do so any Sunday morning from 8am-noon or drop by the church office and pick up a key.

On Sunday, March 28th, immediately following worship, the chapel will be open and someone will be available to answer your specific questions and concerns.

Facts and Information:  The following are the facts and information to consider concerning the chapel building vote: 

The chapel has had moisture/water/mold issues for over 40 years.  Due to the location of the chapel and the way it was constructed, there will always be these issues in the Chapel.  Part of the metal substructure has completely rusted into on the east side of the building under where the 3 AC units are located.  There is extensive water damage to stucco walls, ceiling tiles and carpet.  There is an extensive moisture, mold and mildew problem.  These issues can be repaired but not resolved long term.  Some Sunday School classes/members have had to exited the chapel building due to allergies they had experienced.  The three Sunday School classes have been relocated.  Two of these classes are now in the Sanctuary building allowing them closer access to worship.

**The repairs to the building are estimated to range between $110,00.00 to $150,000.00.   Within 5 years of repairs, additional repair work costing over $40,000.00 would be required. 

**The demolition and removal of the building would cost $18,000.00 and it would take around two weeks to complete the project.  Please be in prayer as we look at the current and future needs of our church.  The deacons want everyone to be as informed as possible prior to making this decision.
