Roof Repairs Completed!

The roof damage, from the high winds last spring, ihas been completed! There are still some cedar shingles that are curling up, but we've been told that the insurance company won't cover the replacement of those, as they are not "wind damaged" they are just old and dried out.

The south side cedar roof has been completely torn off and replaced. The new cedar needs to weather and age before it will match the old cedar parts of the roof. But it looks gorgeous! 

Also, the have torn off and replace the asphalt shingles on the pointed roof above the parking lot entry.   

Now if we can just get the rest of their equipment taken off our lawn, everything will be great!


Shared Leadership Team/Vestry Meetings
The last Shared Leadership/Vestry Meeting for 2022 will be held on Thursday, December 8th at 6:30PM. 
If anyone is interested in seeing what these meetings are about, you are welcome to attend the November or December meeting as a guest. We are in need of some new Vestry members for 2023. It is a wonderful way to participate in the decision-making process for St. Luke's and it is only a once-a-month commitment! Please come check it out. 

The New AC/Heat Unit Has Been Fixed!
The heater has been fixed and it is nice and toasty warm in the Gathering Space. Come join us for coffee and treats after the 9:30 am Sunday service.
Needful Things: 

Our 1880's building requires more maintenance than newer buildings, and even our newer (1950's) addition needs constant attention. Beyond our normal building expenses, our wish list includes: 
  • Replace the entrance doors at 7th & Vermillion. 
  • Repair/Replace parking lot.
  • Repair shake roof where shakes have come off.
  • Update Electric Panels in Church
  • Tuckpointing and brick repair on exterior of building
