A flurry of emails has been occurring between Worship Committee members and their Chairperson, Don Weaver. The subject evolved around their perceived need to change the long standing location of the Worship services out of Epworth Hall.
This change of location for worship services was made necessary when SLI contracted with NYS to accept a sizable grant which will replace the roof, upgrade the ventilation, repair and replace original electric lines showing considerable signs of wear. Drainage around the building and moisture within the lower level is another priority. Foundation work and wall straightening appears now to be included.
"The Worship Committee has, in light of the Grantee Certification sent to the DACNY, [the] Worship Committee wish[es] to be proactive rather than reactive to the changes this will make in our programming," tentatively wrote Chairperson Don Weaver to the President of the Trustees, as he (the Chair) continues to receive comments and concerns from Worship Committee members.
