Roof Fund Campaign

At the annual congregational meeting on Feb 25, 2018, the urgency of taking action on the deteriorating roof was emphasized.  Since then a significant leak has developed in the sanctuary.   A budget of $92,000 was approved at the annual meeting to complete a new roof, and a ‘Roof Fund’ has now been created to accept donations to help defray the cost. Since this is a very sizeable cost, and available resources are limited, we will need to raise a significant portion of the cost from donations in order to proceed.

Your prayerful consideration to contribute generously to this urgent appeal is needed in order to maintain Saint Andrew’s beautiful church building.

Donation forms and envelopes marked “Roof Fund” are available on the tables at the back of the church. Your Donation, along with the completed form, can be put in the offering plate, can be sent to the Church Office, or given to a member of the Board or Session, whose names are shown in this bulletin. If you want someone to pick up your donation, please contact the church office at 455-8220. We sincerely thank you for your consideration to this urgent appeal. Donations are deductible for tax purposes.

Roof Fund Balance: The Roof Fund balance is now at $49,029.  Thanks for your support.
