Weekly Update

6/3/11 Weekly Update
After the hectic week last week, I've decided this Sunday is Laughter Sunday. Please come with a funny joke or story to share, and some laughter in your heart. We'll sing funny songs, and just enjoy the goodness of being together in all kinds of weather.

Here's a message from our President, John Miller . . .
"I just came from the church and the roofers were on lunch break.  They should be through with the roof covering the sanctuary by 4:30 tonight. They have yet to cover the towers and Hawkeye Sheet Metal has to finish the steel caps BUT our roof won't leak if it rains.  I will be going back this afternoon again to check while they are working.

Service Master has removed the fans and dehumidifiers claiming everything dry according to their hygrometers.  I will be talking to Joe Paxon regarding the settlement for stains and damages to the carpet and woodwork. There should be some settlement but I am not sure how much yet.  Floor Decor has the measurements for the sanctuary but I told Mark that we would let him know if we wanted him to do more.  He said he has trucks delivering to his store 3 days/week and if the carpet is in stock it can be here in short order."

I should also mention that John has been busy and dropped by CFU to ask about a rebate for insulation. That should amount to $730.  He was given, and will bring on Sunday, a picture of heat loss from CFU's heatloss flyover in November.

He is planning on holding an informational session for anyone who has questions about the whole roof/leak situation immediately following the service.

See you in church!

Pastoral Update
I have heard from Brian Forster out at Friendship Village, that Don Wendt is not doing well at all. He is in the Nursing Care section, and Dorothy is able to visit most days. I'm sure she would appreciate cards. And if knew Don, you might want to drop by for a brief visit and good-bye.

The Cedar Valley Hospitality House is collecting used bicycles and collecting donations to purchase pup tents for homeless people in the local area.  Bicycles must be in good working condition and can be dropped off at the Hospitality House, located at 1003 Mulberry St. in Waterloo (phone 319-234-1311).  The pup tents will be distributed to those who are unable to find other nighttime shelter or wish to stay outdoors during the summer months.  The cost of each single-occupant tent is $40.  Tax-deductible contributions can be sent to the Hospitality House at P.O. Box 1505, Waterloo IA 50704.  The Cedar Valley Hospitality House is a nondenominational day shelter for the homeless.  Contributions are tax-deductible.  More information at:
