As the Consistory Corner announced in the newsletter last month, the Building Vision Task Force has been working on increasing the “usage” of all three of our buildings. We are in the process of formulating a 501(c)3 in this regard. The Vision Statement for this we provided in the January newsletter as well.
Along these lines, the Consistory agreed to hire an architect for a feasibility study of the sanctuary building. Mr. James Oleg Kruhly of Kruhly Architects was approved. While his firm will be writing up the feasibility study, Mr. Kruhly has also offered to provide a lecture to our congregation, since this “investigation” of a possible re-molding of the worship space, et. al. is happening more often than we might think in many congregations.
Mr. Kruhly has given this lecture while in London, since his expertise is well-known in the area of historic churches. We are very grateful for his generous offer (He will not be charging us an extra fee for the lecture.), and the Task Force is quite sure that the lecture will be eye-opening.
So please plan to remain a bit longer at coffee hour on Sunday, Feb 21st. Mr. Kruhly’s PowerPoint lecture is titled: The Changing Nature of Places of Worship. This should increase our understanding and sense of meaning for such an interior remodeling.
