The Prayer Shawl ministry gathers for a time to connect, work on

Chancel Light System Needs
The Information Technologies team has been investigating a way to improve the lighting around the chancel area in the sanctuary. An improved lighting system will flood the entire chancel in light benefiting participants and those sitting in the pews. We would like to have some theatrical effects to enhance the many worship experiences we offer. Switches and dimmers will be located in two convenient locations for operators. Our video ministry will greatly improve as light will be better balanced and give better definition to our broadcast outreach.
We would like to move forward with an LED system which will reduce our consumption of electricity and give longer life to the bulbs that are used. The bid we have received for such a system is at $28,800. This does not include electrical work to get power to the lights. We currently have $24,000 in designated funds for such an improvement. Before we can move forward on this project we need to collect enough dollars to pay for this project. If you would like to donate to this project, please contribute to the IT Fund.
Your generosity will help to expedite this process and help us to improve our worship as soon as possible.
The Property Resource Team would like to thank all who helped in any way to make this project come to life. It is a beautiful addition to
