Flood Report- No Ark Needed

As some of you may be aware, this past Wednesday the parish hall suffered some flooding from all the rain. Apparently the water came up through the air ducts in the floor.

I was at the church Wednesday afternoon and so was able to catch it as it was happening. As such the water did not sit for long on the floor.

The long and short of it is that we contacted our insurance company, had a restoration company come out as well as our heating and air guys.

We were able to resolve the issue without filing an insurance claim. Currently we have several fans and two dehumidifiers running around the clock. We have also treated the entire area with an anti-microbial solution. A big thank you to Palmer for all his help and hard work on this.

Also, whoever has been praying for rain, can kindly stop now.

 

 

Plans to Reopen- Underway

Update:

Our time frame for reopening is being determined in large part by having all the equipment in place that we need to stream the service long term. Currently all the equipment is in except the camera. Once the camera arrives, we will install everything, do a test run, and then announce the opening

My estimation is that we will officially reopen and resume our Sunday Eucharist service around 6/7 (Trinity Sunday). Our time frame is being determined

 

Original Announcement- We are all anxiously awaiting the time when we can once again open the doors to the church for Sunday Worship. Currently we are listening to the advice of many churches and diocese as they share their thoughts on what steps we need to take to safely open. Above all we will be following the lead and direction of our Bishop.

 

Regardless, even after our official opening our plans are to continue live streaming our service. In fact a large part of the timing of our reopening is contingent upon us having all the equipment we will need for long term streaming in place. Once it arrives, we will do an install, set up, a few test runs, and then we will announce our reopening.

 

I sent out two separate emails (and will send them both out again this week in case you missed them). These email outline the steps of both our “soft reopening” and our “official reopening”. Please take a moment to read them if you have not do so already

 

In the meantime, keep your eyes on the newsletter for further developments. We will let you know what we know as soon as we know it.
