Paint Day with Paul Nulton

We had two busy first weeks in August here at church as Rev. Paul Nulton led another fortnight of volunteerism. This time, we tackled two windows of the sanctuary, stripped, primed and caulked them, as their deterioration had especially advanced. We also finished stripping, priming, and caulking the white vestibule behind the Randolph Room. Stef Beemsterboer helped a lot with this. I then finished painting the roof of this vestibule. It shines now in a beautiful green. And last but not least, Julius Fekete used the time and, supported by Pastor Susan, stripped the big door of the Church House that leads out to Neilson Street. He even gave it some good carpentry work.

We thank all our volunteers during these weeks, Ethel, Lauren and Gary, Stef and Erie, and my own family who had Paul over for dinner, Ethel who offered Paul many showers, and especially Ellen and Bruce who gave Paul a room for the time. Thank you all, for you helped us not only save costs but also to reconnect with Paul and our Synod’s Office of Volunteer Services!

Now, since we have invested so much during these weeks, we need to protect our investment. This means that a final coat of paint needs to be applied to windows, vestibule and door. The Property Committee has, therefore, scheduled a Paint Day for Saturday, Sep 13th, starting at 9:00 a.m. Paul will lead us that day. If you are inclined to help us that, please call our church office now at 732-545-1005 and leave a message.

Please use this great opportunity of helping preserve our beautiful buildings.
