Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ

As you may recall we did major and much needed renovations to the parsonage during the summer of 2008. However, as we noted at that time, we were unable to compete two projects due to lack of funds and have delayed them until now. The first is the replacement of the thirty plus year old air conditioner at the parsonage which is literally being held together with duct tape and rust. Not only is the current AC at risk for falling from the sky, but the savings from using a more efficient unit should recover a significant amount of its cost over its life. Estimates for the AC replacement are in the neighborhood of $5,000 and we have negotiated with APEX Air to pay approximately half down and the balance monthly over time.

The second project is to replace the fence which is suffering from advanced rot and storm damage going back to Hurricane Wilma in 2005. At the moment, bungee cord and playground equipment are holding some of the fence up and numerous posts have rotted and snapped at their bases. Due to current city code we will be required to hire a certified fence contractor for this job. We are still acquiring estimates for the fence replacement, but hope to have some solid proposals soon.

We will have a special envelope towards these unbudgeted expenses for the next several Sundays in order to raise funds for these projects and invite your generosity in order to bring them to fruition.
