After VAB information meetings on January 17 and 24, the congregation overwhelmingly voted to approve spending on architecture and design fees with Susan Jones of atelierjones llc (Seattle) at the Congregational Meeting on January 31. As was mentioned at those meetings, additional opportunities for your input into future renovation plans will be made available. Sunday, March 13th, after the 2nd service (aprox 12:30 to 3:30pm), will be a critical meeting in regards to getting your input on this project. Our architect will be facilitating a discussion to find out what your hopes and dreams for our facilities are as we move forward with the goals outlined in the strategic plan developed during our recent visioning process. Refreshments and snacks will be provided. If you weren’t able to attend the 1/17, 1/24, or 1/31 VAB congregational meetings, and would like copies of the hand-outs, or have any other questions related to the VAB project, please email the new dedicated VAB email address at VAB@ourredeemers.net.
