The building and grounds ministry is charged with the upkeep of the church, parish house, and the grounds. This includes a bi-annual clean up day to spruce up the church and the gardens. It also is charged with identifying and making recommendations for care and repair of the facility’s needs in a timely manner.
A recent need identified was the quality of the sound system in the sanctuary. Under the leadership of Denis Howes and Carroll Peabody, Broadway Sounds was contacted to evaluate the system. With the expertise of Broadway Sounds the system was adjusted for volume and tone, and the result was immediately seen. A boom holder for the wireless microphone will be added to make it easier for the readers to be within the recommended twelve inches of the wireless microphone to deliver the best quality.
The church grounds are also a part of our history and charm. The patio is one example of this. Pavers for the garden patio “In Memory of” or “Thanksgiving of” can be purchased and engraved that will provide an enduring opportunity to give thanks or to remember a loved one. The office will collect requests throughout the year and have them engraved. Planning on having at least five orders at a time, the bricks will be installed at random on a quarterly basis.
The cost for each paver is $35.00 and covers the cost to purchase, engrave, and install the paver as well as maintaining the patio as a sacred place. An order form for Engraved Patio Bricks may be obtained from the church office.
The Ministry team meats the First Sunday of Feb, April, June, October, and December at 9:00am, so feel free to come meet with us!
