Message from Reverend Herb Taylor
Hello from Herb,
I love our church basement. I “really especially” love it because of the way it looks now. Last week we had new LED lighting (as well as ballasts and some wiring) put in all the fixtures in the basement (as well as other parts of the church) and, along with the new flooring we put in over the last year or so, our church basement now looks bright and beautiful!
This is important not just for aesthetic reasons, but because of the welcome and hospitality it extends to all the different groups that use our church. It literally helps people to feel that a “light shines in the darkness,” and does really help to lift spirits and inspire hope. When someone comes to our church for a support group, or for any reason, we want them to feel that they are surrounded by a church family that cares for them and respects their journey. The way our church building looks and functions should always reflect our ministry, and we continue to make important strides in that direction.
One of the other things that this new LED lighting provides is significantly improved energy efficiency and bulbs which will last much, much longer than the prior fluorescent bulbs. So, this lighting itself reflects the way our ministry cares about the environment and is focused on ensuring we are good stewards of all that God has given us. Of course, speaking of being good stewards, all this lighting and its installation was made possible through a grant we applied for through Eversource and so cost the church nothing.
Thank you for all the ways you help to support our continued work on improving the look, feel and function of our church home. The trustees have exciting and important projects planned for 2019. This includes the renovation of our kitchen, with a new floor, cabinets and countertops. This is another project that will extend our hospitality and welcome in a multitude of ways. You will have an opportunity to help to make this vision for a new kitchen a reality, so stay tuned for this invitation.
See you in church,
Yours in Christ,
Rev. Herb Taylor
