The sanctuary design process now picks up speed. The goal is to have construction drawings out for bid by mid-October. LOCUS Architects and the Building Committee are moving toward specific options for the Sanctuary and they seek the congregation’s input and response.
Three important events are being scheduled for this summer:
Two meetings of the architect and the congregation are proposed so that the congregation can provide initial feedback and then follow-up comment before final construction drawings are prepared.
Additional meetings will be scheduled in the fall for the congregation to review construction design documents. Once bids are received, the congregation will vote to accept a bid and to proceed with construction.
Meet Our Core Team
Fund Appeal Core Leadership Team:
Lois Buntz and Chris DeWolf serve as co-chairs for the Fund Appeal for First Lutheran Church. They will lead the core leadership team that includes Jenny Bosking, Judy Cheney, Mark Fersdahl, Jana Grimm, Patti Groff, Doug Johnson, Bob Koenig, John Swenson, and Tom Wolle. Pastor Craig and Pastor Steve, along with Tim Box, Director of Support Services will work with the core team, as well as the whole staff. One hundred people will be recruited to make Renewing God’s House a success.
This is a whole congregation effort. Already the core team has reached out to expand the leadership of work teams for prayer, communication, invitation, and special events that will bring about success. We will continue to build teams in the coming weeks.
