KITCHEN RENOVATION
 
8/28/2017
FYI—-The kitchen ‘renovation project’ has a ‘pressing need’ for funding. We will be having
3 Wed. night dinners this year as a fundraiser for this project. The first of these dinners will be
Sept 13, 2017 and there will be the ‘tri fold’ poster set up in FH to show the future plans for
the kitchen. We plan to be doing this project in at least ‘two phases’ and possibly three, with
the first phase to include the electric update and additions; removing the current 12 burner
cooktop and bottom cupboards; removing the current convection oven and purchasing 2 new
stackable convection ovens to be placed where ½ of the 12 burner cooktop is currently sitting.
Depending on funding raised, the second phase will include the 4-burner cooktop; either a 12”
or 15” attached griddle; possibly a ‘home style’ oven; extending the south counter top to the
West wall; removing 2 of the 3 sinks on the south wall; and additional cabinets/drawers built
on South wall where the current convection oven now sits. IF sufficient funding is made
available for ‘part of the second phase’—cooktop/griddle/oven—then that will be included
with phase 1. Phase 3 will include new flooring and new countertops.
An additional ‘kitchen renovation committee’ is in the process of being formed with the major
assignment to fund raise for this project. ANYONE who is willing to help and promote this is
welcome to be on the committee. Hopefully, the more people the more ideas=more money!
 
IF YOU FEEL THAT YOU COULD HELP WITH THIS COMMITTEE, PLEASE LET THE
OFFICE KNOW.
 
The cost estimate for the two convection ovens is $6500.
Cost estimates for the ‘4 burner cooktop/12” griddle is $3950.00;
Cost estimates for the ‘4 burner cooktop/15” griddle is $4160.00;
Cost estimate for Range– 4 burners, 12” griddle, oven base is $6300.00.
At this time, we are waiting for a cost estimate for the electrical part of this project. We currently
have $8,000.00 in the ‘kitchen fund’.
The remaining two Wed. night dinners for this fundraiser are scheduled
for Nov 1, 2017; and April 4, 2

Adult Bible Study . . . The Book of Job
 
Job was a contented family man of great means and great faith, and then everything went wrong, absolutely everything. It seemed as if God had turned His back on him! And in a way, He had! Unbeknownst to Job, God and Satan had entered into a sort of contest with Job as the pawn. Please join us as we explore the universal question, “Why do bad things happen to good people?”
