Look, up, look up, look way, way up!
If you stand on the sidewalk in front of the church and look up, you will see what the Building and Property Team has seen.
After they looked up, some of them climbed up with roofing experts.
The shingles on the church, installed in 1999, will not do us for another winter. And, there are other concerns about the building that should not be neglected.
The Building and Property Team prepared a report of recommendations for the Council, and having read that report, the Council has called a Congregational Meeting. The report talks about the roof (shingles are one part of that), and the future needs of the building – furnace replacement which might happen as soon as next year (yes, we are hoping for grants to help with this…)
It will be possible for people who do not have ZOOM to join the meeting via telephone. We hope that you will plan to attend.
The report, recommendations, and funding considerations will be distributed next week, at least one week in advance of the meeting.
As we plan, it is very clear that additional contributions to the Building Fund would be greatly appreciated right now!

As we emerge from the disruptions caused by the pandemic, we are determining how we regather as the church.
To help in that, we wrote to you last week about the music program , asking for input on your hopes and preferences.(if you have not yet replied – there are a few more days to do so! – please send your thoughts to firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP!)
We again thank everyone who continues to support TMUC’s ministry. Our TruEarth fundraiser continues, here is the link:
We are collecting empty, cleaned (preferably crushed) pop cans as a recycling fundraiser.
We also collect used batteries for recycling.
We keep you in our prayers,
Carol and Jeff
