A Note from Junior Warden Jeremiah Moore
Good morning to my church family of St. Alban’s! I miss you all dearly, and look forward to the time we can once again reunite as a whole on Sunday mornings. I write this note in my capacity as your Junior Warden, and I am in need of your help. It is my duty to ensure that the church building and grounds are kept in working order and shape, even in this time of uncertainty and congregational absence. The A/C unit that keeps the sanctuary cool during these summer months is no longer in working condition. In fact, our entire unit system is on the verge of needing to be replaced, and this is the first unit to fail.
With that being said, Willie Ludwig and I have collected a number of quotes for replacing the broken unit, and we’ve secured the lowest bid at $6,190 + tax. Many thanks to Willie for his assistance in this matter. While we have roughly $7,000 in our church building fund, the near future seems to indicate that we will need much more than the cost of one unit. Besides that, the current roof does not have many years left, shown evident by some recent shingle damage during a recent storm.
But I do have good news! We have received a very generous anonymous matching donation to the building fund for $6,790. This means that for every dollar given to the building fund, one more will be added to it up to $6,790. You can give by sending a check to the church (PO Box 726, Stuttgart, AR, 72160), by dropping a check off at the church, or by giving online.
I completely understand that you all give generously in your monthly pledges, and for this, I am grateful. My ask to you is this: in addition to your current pledge, please consider giving to the building fund for these much needed current and upcoming repairs. We are a strong church family, and we can help create a solution as a family. Please donate to help us acquire the full amount of the matching gift. I am thankful to you all. Whether it’s financial contributions, work at the food bank, buying green beans, or praying for your church family and neighbors, thank you. Should you need anything from me, I’m just a phone call away.
Jeremiah Moore, Junior Warden
