Dear Creator Family,
This is a very busy week at the Church. The paint crews have started their preparation of the portico and the repair work is well under way. We think the repairs and painting will be finished sometime next week.
Our restroom is in the final stage of completion and we are hoping to complete that remodel next week as well.
The entire Parish Hall is in various stages of clean up and rearranging after our Yard Sale shut down, which will continue for next month.
Our new Creator Church sign has been approved and we are looking to set that up in the next two weeks. The small direction signs and the monument sign update will follow soon after.
We are currently working on cleaning up the parking lot area and the play yard. These are both big jobs and will be an on-going effort through next spring. Those jobs in particular, could use added help.
I am in ready communication with the County Planning Office about the widening of Route 360, and in preparation for that, the utility marking of our property has already taken place.
I said there was a lot going on, and in fact, I have only listed the BIG things here. We have a lot of maintenance and deferred maintenance items that we are tackling. Even so, as busy as it sounds, we are just as invested and as connected with each other as we seek to praise the Lord! Our Sunday services continue on ZOOM and YouTube as we meet in person on the portico and receive Communion in one kind. This gathering is a balm and a joy as we are able to worship together. To make this a better experience, I have recently changed our ZOOM sound system and added a PA system to the Church Portico. All of our efforts are dedicated to our Lord, honoring the stewardship of past generations, and looking for the exciting things to come!
In addition, we have moved the Annual Meeting to the first quarter of 2021 for fiduciary purposes and we are making changes to streamline this process. Our Stewardship Sunday will be held November 1st, All Saints Sunday, and our Vestry elections will follow on November 22nd, Christ the King Sunday. We continue to pray for God’s blessings as we listen for the call to serve.
Peace in Christ,
Father Bill Burk†
