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

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.
Our church’s literacy project reaches the community in three ways.
On June 6th, the Annual Meeting of the UCC’s Wisconsin Conference voted that their congregations and members would covenant with one another as they made a full commitment to the Kairos Call to Action—a call issued by the UCC’s Council for Climate Justice for an all-out mobilization of churches to address climate and inequality.
The Kairos Call to Action aims to provide the scientific, theological, and practical resources for churches seeking to develop 10-year mobilization plans to address the twin, intertwined crises of climate and inequality. On this page, you will find 10 ways to engage with this aspect of our wider mission.
With that call in mind, the Conference Creation Care Team has recorded worship service with music, children’s time, readings, and prayers. The message, “Healing Our Earthly Home”, is delivered by the Rev. John Helt. A link to this wonderful service is here.
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.
