- Church Heaters Needed
Presently the only areas in the building that have heat are the Fellowship Hall and the Sanctuary. Ensuring that our entire building is heated and cooled in an energy efficient manner will take a major time and financial commitment. 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 $376 per heater. Your generous donation to help fund this heating project is very much appreciated.
