Mission: to improve the accessibility of our buildings to better serve everyone in our community.
The Team met multiple times during the 2019/2020 church year. We were made aware that the Missions Team was willing to provide $25,000 to the project of improved accessibility at the church. This designation led to a revitalized effort to move forward with improvement plans. A larger team was formed. We began to meet to discuss our goals, review successes and failures of the past, and determine a general plan of action. The Team was actively interviewing local architects when the COVID 19 challenges began to surface. Two architects have been interviewed fully and participated in a building tour. Additionally, we also received some guidance from a local and well respected engineer. As May 2020 approaches, we are now in a holding pattern. As soon as it is safe to do so, we will be meeting for our last architect interview and building tour. At this point, we will make a decision as to which architect best fits our needs. It will be necessary to obtain the approval of the congregation at large for initial funding required to bring an architect on task and continue moving forward. We are also looking into creative funding to assist us with this project.
