As part of our 2013 Vision & Challenge, this collection will improve many capital improvements outside our general operating budget. Additionally, the first $5,000 will go toward funding the construction project that Southeastern agreed to complete in Honduras this summer. We’ve set a goal of $50,000 in cash and pledges.
Improvements will be made as money allows, however, the first priorities are to seal the parking lot and drives as a way of protecting our recent paving investment ($11,000) and to replace an auditorium air-conditioning unit ($9,600 beyond what we’ve already raised). Additional projects include refurbishing Room 500 (paint, carpet, drop-ceiling), installation of an automated door at the office entrance for handicap accessibility, improving the quality of sound in the auditorium (upgrading speaker arrays for singing, not just voice), and renovations to the lobby restrooms.
While completing all these projects will cost more than $50,000, the budget team wanted to place these needs before the congregation so that, if we exceed our goal, you will know how the additional money will be spent. If you would like additional detail, please see Mark McKee, Dale Robinson, Mike DeCamp, or Greg York.
Pledges are welcomed if you aren’t in a position to give on April 28 but would be able to fulfill your pledge by the end of May.
