Memorial Day 2013

Church Members Participated in the 146th Annual Bloomfield Memorial Day Parade - May 26, 2013




NEW MEMBERS WELCOMED

"Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee," was our opening hymn on Sunday, May 5, 2013, and joy was in the air as we welcomed six new members, along with four children and a teenager. Our joy spilled over into the coffee hour as we shared cake, punch, smiles and hugs; from Pastor Ruth.

BUILDING AND GROUNDS UPDATE March 31, 2013

March 2013 - You might not see it, but Both Scott Imhoff and Goldstein partners have been hard at work on the Church on the Green. Imhoff & Co. have completely re-roofed the Education Building. Additionally, they have continued demolition within the sanctuary in preparation for new roof trusses and ceiling installation. Goldstein Partners should have final designs ready for summertime work to begin. Letís wish them all well and hold them in our thoughts as this project continues. All the best!

February 2013 - Recently, we received some good news from our engineers regarding the Sanctuary. After extensive research and measurement, it has been determined that we will not have to disassemble and rebuild the east wall. The design of the new trusses will stabilize and tie in the entire structure. This will save us nearly half of the cost of restoration as well as a tremendous amount of time. The engineers and builders are completing final plans for construction. Assuming that all goes according to schedule, we might be back in the sanctuary by Christmas this year.
