Other Statements

Vestry Meeting

The Vestry met on Tuesday, August 15, and took the following decisions:

1.  Approved a bid to replace the carpet in the main body of the church (we expect the work to be completed in September).  At the same time, work will be done to firm up the floor where needed.

2.  Reviewed two bids to replace the HVAC unit in the church office area; a third bid is being sought. A final decision will be made soon.

3.  Set two parish "workdays" to clear out unwanted items before the carpets in the office building are cleaned; and to move furniture after the cleaning for more efficient and comfortable use of the space.

4.  Agreed on an approach for the annual commitment ("pledge") drive that will be held this fall.

The next Vestry meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 19, at 6 PM.

There will be a special joint service and parish conversation on Sunday, Aguust 20, at 9:00 AM (with choir and pitch-in brunch).  Our Vestry has been busy reviewing our mission and ministry activities, and is seeking congregational input as we continue to seek ways to build a strong Christian community at Christ Church.  Please plan on joining us that morning!  See the E-Pistle for June 29 for more details.
