BSLC Trustee Report

1 Corinthians 10:31, "Whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God."

The Trustees generally have a Congregational Work Day scheduled for the first Saturday of each month.  When those days fall on a holiday weekend or in conflict with Church events,  we will adjust the schedule.  

Any Church member, family, or friend is invited to help out.  Our goal is to make our campus an inviting place to visit and worship.

We do not have to wait for the Congregational Work Days to complete the various projects.  Some members may have time during the week or other Saturdays to complete them.  Contact me if you are interested in completing some small projects.

Reminder:  When a member or guest is hosting an activity that has food provided, make sure that the trash is discarded after the activity.  Also make sure the kitchen has been cleaned thoroughly.

Thank you,

Rick Chapman

Take a look at the new appiances in the FLC kitchen.  There was a very generous donation of two new refrigerators and two new stoves from an anonimous family.  The units are top of the line and look great.

These donors are now challenging the rest of the congregation to donate funds for two new dish washers.  The current dish wsher are getting worn out and need to be replaced.

The use of the dish wsshers has increased substantially with daily use for preschool dish cleaning.

It is optimal to have one commercial unit, but the price tag for that is around $3700.  But it has a 90 second cycle.

Then replace the other unit with a good, quality unit.  Estimated t $800.

Or we go with two units at around $800 each.
