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.  Break down boxes before you put them in the dumpster.

Thank you,

Rick Chapman
