Financial Goals: At our 2006 annual meeting in May, we approved the
construction of a new sanctuary and congregational life space with
religious education classrooms on a lower level. We also approved a
preliminary cost estimate of $1,265,690 and the goal of raising
between $575,000 and $625,000 from our congregation and selected
friends and partners in the community.
As of December 27, 2006, the total pledged to the Capital Campaign
is $610,500. We will keep the campaign &ldquo'open” during the
three-year fulfillment period to provide opportunities for
new members to share in the campaign.

What Are You Doing Here?: a sermon by Rev. Christine Brownlie (September 24, 2006). In the
September newsletter, Rev. Brownlie wrote, “Now and then I ask myself this question. I’d invite you to do the same, and then consider your answer as we enter into a time of hope and anticipation for our future as a congregation.”
Frequently Asked Questions: Karen Turner spent significant time
meeting with various groups (covenant and other) to share

or concerns individuals might have about the process. This list
represents the issues that were derived from these small group
meetings which took place over the months of July through September.
