STORIES JESUS TOLD
Nearly one-third of the words of Jesus recorded in the Bible were stories – we know them as parables. These "parables" are stories that spoke to the relentless love of God, and the meaning and purpose of life. Jesus spoke of good Samaritans, prodigal children, rich fools and unforgiving servants, lost sheep and new growth choked out by weeds--and with each story he answered the questions we ask in life. Join us this summer as we explore the Stories Jesus Told.

LEADERSHIP UPDATE!
In May, Carolyn King-Layden, member of Trustee and liaison to the Leadership Council, updated the congregation that in June, our church will be getting a new fire safety panel. This project will last about one week and it is something that the Trustees have researched for 2 years. The current fire safety system was installed in 2006, when the Administration building was renovated. In the spring of 2017, we were notified by our fire safety company that our fire safety panel is being phased out. By 2023 all of the parts and components, such as the smoke detectors, pull stations and horns & strobes will be obsolete. Over the past two years, the Trustees have been making a list of requirements and researching companies. We have chosen Berkshire Systems Group, Inc. as our new fire safety vendor.

The Trustees decided to include some safety changes and enhancements to the new system. Some of the new changes include; the placement of the system; the new panel will be placed in the coat room, at the bottom of the ramp, near the door to the Memorial Garden. The current one is in a closet in the new nursery on the first floor. We are also having improved notifications. Meaning the monitoring company will send text messages and emails with details to the source of the problem. The current system does not do that.

Another improvement is the fire doors on the 2 nd floor of the Administration building, at the top of the stairs, will remain open unless power is lost to the building or the fire safety panel senses an issue. Currently the doors remain closed and there are no windows, which could be a safety issue. The area with the most changes that the Trustees agreed on was in the Kitchen in Fellowship Hall. New enhancements will be a gas sensor which notifies the system when the stove pilot, grill or broiler goes out. As well as a sensor that detects when the fire suppression is triggered, concerning the stove. The final change is a horn and strobe light which will alert anyone in the kitchen area that the fire safety system has been triggered.

We also are including an expansion option, which means we can better manage the Education building and the Sanctuary if we choose to add those features in the future. Finally, our new Berkshire System is modular which will eliminate the “end of life” issues we are currently experiencing. P lease know that these changes are important to our church building. Some will be visible, some will not, but our church will be better protected for our future.
