Raise the Roof Update
Work on the third and final phase of our roof replacement begins next week. We and our ministry partners are looking forward to thirty years of peace of mind. Thank you, Tom McDermott, our "Volunteer Foreman," for handling all communications with our contractors ahead of the big day and beyond. And thank you, Andrew Wade, for your work on this campaign.
As of today, we have raised $4,340 toward Phase III. Thank you to everyone that stepped up so eagerly and faithfully!
Phase III will cost more than $40,000. This part of the roof covers classrooms, our library and offices, the hall entrance, breezeway, and rear entrance. We have found some rotted wood, and some work around the perimeter of the roof is required. That may lead to some additional costs. We are prepared with significant savings, and St. John's was awarded a $5,000 Peter James Lee Church Revitalization Grant from the diocese in April. That requires us at least that amount from the parish. Thanks to you, and the grace of God, we've almost secured that match.
The more we can raise now toward the full price tag, the less we will draw from our reserves, preserving funds for the next big project or emergency. Please prayerfully consider a donation and make your contribution by Sunday, May 28.
To donate, please write a check to St. John’s Episcopal Church (write ‘Facility’ in the memo) or use the facility donation button at the bottom of this email. If you have any questions, or would like to hear more, please contact Rev. Kevin or Andrew Wade on the Finance Committee. Help us raise the roof at Pentecost!
