The Sanctuary Committee was formed by the Church Council in January, 2017 to carry out initial research for potential changes and improvements to our sanctuary, especially the chancel area. Their initial report was shared with the congregation on Sunday, October 15th in advance of the Open Forum on October 22nd.
After listening to questions and concerns that were brought up at the Forum, and also gathered in a written survey that followed it a month later, the Board of Trustees directed the Committee to expand its membership and research items brought up by the congregation.
The Sanctuary Committee, with guidance from the Trustees, is preparing three documents for the congregation to read prior to this second round of Open Forums. The three documents cover the three purposes for the potential renovation project:
- Needed Maintenance for a space that is 30 years old;
- Improvements to the Functions of Worship; and
- Improvements to the Beauty of the Worship Space
The congregation is encouraged to read through these documents to be prepared for discussion at the Open Forums.
