Dear Friends in Christ,
As you may know, there has been concern lately about the need to replace the shingles on the church. Hail and wind events this summer have accelerated the situation. The council weighed the pros and cons of asphalt vs steel products and decided in June to accept the low bid for steel shingles for $130,000. We are assured they will be installed this fall and are guaranteed for 50 years.
The Roofing fund, which was started in 2020, has grown to $85,000 thanks to your generosity and a $28,0000 insurance check from Church Mutual for hail damage. That leaves us with $45,000 needed to meet the total cost. Consequently we are asking you to prayerfully consider additional gifts to the Roofing fund to help us cover as much of the remaining balance as possible in 2022 to avoid borrowing money for the day to day operations of the church.
Our worship facilities have served us well since 2000 and now we need to reinvest in preserving the building for years to come.
Fisher Church Council
