Everyone can help keep Gary Church beautiful!
Please consider becoming a trustee volunteer as we have plenty of “handyman” work-day projects ready to go. We are also planning or considering many “non-critical” projects that need additional funding (i.e. interior carpeting, kitchen upgrades, cosmetic projects, etc). Volunteers need not be mechanically inclined—just engaged and passionate about doing good work for the church. Additionally, we are always looking for new Trustee Committee members who are interested in serving our congregation and keeping the church looking great. Please prayerfully consider volunteering or becoming a Trustee today!
Looking Ahead to 2020 Spring and Summer Opportunities
In coordination with the Audio/Visual Committee, we are planning, budgeting, and executing the long awaited upgrades to the sanctuary. More exciting updates coming on this much needed project!
Replacement of the Carillon bell system. The current system is inoperable and out of date. We have a replacement system picked out and are hopeful to have the new system up and ringing by late spring.
New and fully functional coffee system! We are researching the best systems and how to best serve the various groups that drink coffee during the week.
New Choir robes! The old ones are approximately 35 years old and extremely uncomfortable to wear. There is a committee working on these and should be finalized in 2020 sometime.
Implementing a modern security system for the church so that we can adequately protect any and all people who work, worship, or visit Gary Church. A security task force is reviewing various options to include electronic door security, cameras, volunteer/visitor check-in, as well as security during worship.
Landscape parking lot perimeter per Wheaton township mandate.
Updated 5-year spending plan. This is our main planning and budgeting tool. We want to be good stewards of church funds.
Create an electric file system for all Trustees' documents.
Update asset allocation model for Trustees' Funds through Wespath Financial.
Volunteers Needed! We have a maintenance work-order backlog (~35 items need attention).
