HEARING FOR GREEN LEVEL RENOVATION PLAN
The Town of Cary will hold a quasi-judicial hearing to consider our church's renovation plan on Thursday, August 9, at 6:30pm. The meeting will be held in the Council Chambers at Cary Town Hall, 316 N. Academy Street. While we realize this is in the middle of Vacation Bible School, if you have not yet committed to help at church that evening, we need you, your family, and friends to attend the hearing. You are not required to speak. It is extremely important to have a large showing of support for our plan. This meeting will determine the future of our facilities as well as the programs we are able to offer the community as we grow. If you have any questions, please see Judy Howell, Doug Jacobs or any member of the Renovations Committee.
In response to the Town of Cary's hearing on our renovation plan, we are offering a congregational time of prayer in advance of the hearing on Sunday, August 5, immediately following the service.
