    Presently the only areas in the building that have heat are the Fellowship Hall and the Sanctuary.

In the meantime, while we work to complete this project, we must provide a temporary means of heating the main floor and the basement. We are in need of 40 ceiling mounted heaters. These heaters regularly retail for $732 each. We can acquire them at a 50% discounted rate. This will equal a cost of $366 per heater. Your generous donation to help fund this heating project is very much appreciated.
