Our CDC has been busy this month, meeting about every two weeks, in order to review the architectural proposals for the project. We have narrowed the search down to two firms which we will be meeting with face-to-face in the first half of December. After that, we will be making a final decision about which architect best fits our project, who understands our hopes and dreams for the re-designed sanctuary space.

During the congregational meeting on Oct 31st, a point was raised about seeking outside “Reformed” architectural expertise. John Coakley has been assisting us in that search. We are hoping to have a person lined up soon.

Finally, at the congregational meeting, a request was made that a survey of the congregation be made, which asks for their input as to how the re-designed sanctuary space should look like and what “must” be included. We hope to have something out to the congregation by the end of January, 2011.
