From time to time the Elders on Session recognize that we have a need for items beyond what our annual budget would support. Each of these items will support our ministry.
|Item Needed||Rationale||Estimated Cost|
|Folding Room Divider||This divider would permit having two events in Fellowship Hall at the same time.||$4,000|
|Panels or Doors for Craft Room Shelves||Open shelves tempt children to explore the various supplies and distract them from lessons.||$250 to $1,100|
|Commercial Dishwasher||A dishwasher would facilitate use of our china, improve hygiene, and reduce energy costs.||TBD|
|Upgrade Men’s and Ladies’ Restrooms||Improved hospitality will help our visitors and members see that we appreciate them.||TBD|
|New Sanctuary LED Lighting Fixtures||LED lighting would provide improved efficiency, ability to dim lighting for special services, better light levels, and lower our operating costs.||TBD|
|New Lighting Fixtures for the Sanctuary Stained Glass Window||LED lighting would increase visibility of this art work, reduce maintenance, and improve efficiency, and thus lower our operating costs.||TBD|
|New LED Lighting Fixtures for the Weekday School Building||LED lighting would provide improved efficiency and lower our operating costs.||TBD|
|New A/C Units for entire TTPC Campus including the Weekday School Building||Existing units fail frequently due to age (~25 years beyond expected life) and are very inefficient.|
New units would lower our operating costs and provide fresh air.
Weekday School: TBD
|Renovate the Scout Hut||Upgrade would allow for use of this building other than for outside storage.||TBD|
|New Carillon System||Improved technology would provide automated playing during the week and every Sunday to the entire community.||TBD|
|New counters and/or countertops for the Kitchen||Current Formica and wood tops are potential site for bacteria. New countertops would facilitate our community meals.||TBD|
|Blacktop the Parking Lots.||Existing paving is cracked yielding a poor presentation to guests and visitors.||TBD|
|Put one lighting fixture at Fellowship Hall South entrance Ramp on a Photocell||Automated lighting would improve safety for groups using our building at night.||TBD|
|Church Office and Fellowship Hall Roof||Should be replaced due to age.|
Work should be completed when replacing air conditioning units.
|Panic Bars||Technology changes since the church was built merit upgrading exit doors for a safe exit in an emergency.||TBD|
|Transept exit steps||Steps outside the transept exit are excessively steep for an emergency exit.||TBD|
|Improved Signage||Visitors unfamiliar with our property frequently try several doors.|
A few large signs would help visitors find us.
