FAITH UMC “LET THERE BE LIGHT” PROJECT

Faith UMC Family & Friends, the lights throughout our church are in dire need of being replaced.  Over 75% of the fixtures no longer work properly.  Unfortunately, this project can no longer be put off.  Even when new bulbs are installed, a number of the lights flicker constantly and others won’t come on at all.  Additionally, these fixtures are outdated and fail to meet ANY energy efficiency standards.  We must replace the lights or be in darkness.

The total cost including parts and labor is $7500.  Our plan is to have the work completed by December 31, 2017.  This will require 2 phases.  The first phase is the ACQUISITION PHASE.  We need to purchase all of the fixtures at the same time to receive a discount.  This phase will be $4200.  If 20 people give $35 per month for 6 months or 40 people give $17.50 per month, we will reach our goal for Phase I by June.

The next phase will be the INSTALLATION PHASE.  With your donations, by July, we will have all of the new fixtures and will need $3300 for labor.  Thank God, the contractor has agreed to start the work with good faith.  During PHASE II, we will need 20 people to give $27.50 per month or 40 people to give $13.75 per month for 6 months.

As you can see, we have given this a lot of thought.  As much as we need the lights repaired, we must continue to support our outreach ministry and cover other operations expenses with funds above and beyond our regular tithes and offerings.  Please email us your commitment phase and amount.  As the project progresses, we will keep you apprised of the results.  

We believe our members and friends will commit to this project.  We are thanking God in advance and we hope you will join us next year for the unveiling.  “Let There Be Light!”

Rev. Charles M. Straight
