Results on Renovation - Galileans;
THE VOTES ARE IN!! At our congregational meeting today a majority of the voting members present voted to proceed with renovations to the sanctuary, narthex, portico, sign and infrastructure, and parking lot. The voters also authorized the church council to enter into loan agreements with Lutheran Church Extension Fund to finance the renovations. Thanks and blessings to all those who attended, commented and voted throughout this process.
A heartfelt thank you to Gary Thomas and the members of the renovation committee as well. While this action is an historic and joyful day, there is much work yet to be done. Your support and prayers are requested. God's richest blessings on you and Galilee.
