Roof Project-Updated November 2019

It is with great excitement that we now have finished the first phase of our roof project. The flat roofs that extend along the side of the sanctuary and throughout the office area to the gym have all been replaced.

The second which we are fundraising for will be to replace the existing cement shingles on the sanctuary roof. These are original tiles from 1967 and are very heavy. The roof is bowing due to the weight of these tiles but isn’t a safety concern. The tiles would be replaced with asphalt shingles costing about $ 40,000. Fundraising is currently taking place we have about $13,000 remaining for this roof. Our hope is to have the funds in place and the roof completed by spring 2020.

We are asking those that attend First Baptist Church and consider it to be their home church to help raise these funds. If you would like to give toward the roof project you can by designating “Roof Project” on your envelope during our Sunday morning service. Or you can give online through Canada Helps, below you can connect directly to Canada Helps and give designating funds to the “Other” category and making a note that the funds go to the “Roof Project”.

Thank you, The Board
