The Wisconsin Council of Conference Ministers has put together a worship service whose theme revolves around the parable of the talents. The service can be viewed in several formats. The inspiring message by Marilyn B. Kendrix, from the Southern New England Conference, is regarding how our talents can make the world a better place for our time here: “let us remember with thankful hearts, all that God has given to us, let us rededicate ourselves to the building of God’s realm here on earth”.
Stopped by the church today and thought I’d post some pictures of the progress. Things are coming along and looking nice.
The church building contractor provided the planned schedule for the repairs on July 16 and they are as follows:
Week of July 13 – 17 Drywall installed and finish work (taping and mudding) done
Week of July 20 – 24 Painting done (paint to match existing colors)
Week of July 27 – 31 Sand and finish hardwood floor in Sanctuary, pews set back in place, and clean fellowship room
Week of August 3 – 7 Sand and finish hardwood floor in the fellowship room
Week of August 10 – 14 Carpet the basement and main floor
Week of August 17 – 21 Trim work done
This does not include the plans for the bell tower, but it has the interior completed and available to us by Labor Day (leaving room for delays).
Below is a photo of the sanctuary with the wood floors sanded and unfinished.
For the sake of the faith community, for the well-being the community, and the health of the nation, all in-person worship services, all group gatherings, and all social events for the Mazomanie United Church of Christ are temporarily suspended.
During this time of social distancing, let us explore how we can connect differently, coming together in spirit even when life events keep us physically apart.
The members of the board will be meeting by email to discuss our ongoing business and these new developments.
Information from the meeting will be distributed to the congregation.
