We Can Renew St. Andrew
We have begun a second collection to help our “Renew Our Church Project.” The yellow envelopes that you receive in your regular envelope mailing should be used for this purpose. This collection will continue on the 3rd weekend of the month which are now designated as “We Can Renew Our Church Sunday.”
Renew Our Church Construction Update
We have ended our discussions with one of the local cell phone providers, and hve decided to revert to our original plan to build an 80′ steeple with no transmitter equipment inside.
His original design will be much more architecturally correct. Please continue to review our construction plans, and let us know your opinions.
You will notice some clean-up and outside preparation in the weeks ahead. Our major reconstruction plans are still targeted to start in the first quarter of next year (2014). The construction will be in phases so as to allow a smooth transition.
