Next Congregational Work Day

 

The next scheduled Congregational Work Day will be Saturday, May 2, 2020.  Start at 8:30 and finish by noon.  Be advised that this could change if the stay-at-home policy is still in effect.

Due to the coronavirus, the church facility is closed through April 24.  We will not have a Congragational Work Day in April.  

There is a food donation bin at the FLC front entrance.  Donated items will be placed in our pantry and will be dispersed as we get requests.  We will have a person checking on the facilty daily.  Thank you for your generosity. 

Stay safe!!

Contact Rick for any volunteering.

Thanks you and God Bless


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

After Christmas, there was a lot of junk, including an old recliner and coffee table,  dropped off outside the bin.  More than likely, these items will be disposed to the dumpster, and not delievered to the thrift store.  Please report any of this activity to Rick.

SECURITY:  Take notice on the signage on doors.  Entrance doors are locked at all times. Some interior doors are locked during preschool hours.  Additionl security precautions will be added in the near future.

Additional cameras and monitors have been added in March 2020.  We now have 10 cameras and 6 monitors.

The entrances to the FLC main door and the lower entrance door now have electronic card access in March 2020.  Members who require access will be given a card, and all keys will be handed in.  Lisa, in the office, controls the dispersement of the cards.

A new light pole for the front FLC entrance has been ordered.  The security light above the youth patio will also be replaced with new LED lighting.  Installation should be completed in April 2020.

The FLC east, outside security lights have been replaced with brighter LED lighting.
 

INTERIOR LIGHTING:  New LED lighting has been installed in the FLC classrooms, offices, kitchen, and hallways.  In the basement, LED lighting has been installed in Youth Room, classrooms, Trustee office, kitchen, and Finance office.  These lights are programable and will dim and shut off as the timer permits.  

HEALTH:  Replaced (3) toilets and (3) faucets in basement rest rooms.  Replaced counter tops and faucets in main rest rooms.  The FLC gym upper, round ducts were cleaned in November 2019.  The entire facilty was trested with electrostatic disinfectant on March 16, 2020.

OTHER:  The old Sunday school office in the basement has been converted into a food pantry.  Do not add any other items to that room without approval.  The pantry is managed by Donna and Paul Boenisch.

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.

Two new dishwashers have also been instslled.  Thanks to another generous donor.

Many thanks to a member who continually donates to the repair costs of our Grasshopper mowing machine.

With the generous donation from another anonymous donor, several facility projects have been completed as noted above.

There are so many smaller projects and regular maintenance items that are ongoing. 

Contact Rick for any help with labor or any donations.
