Notes on the readings for Sunday, May 8, 2016


Update: Fireside Room – Fireplace Improvement Project

The Fireplace Improvement Project is temporarily on hold; we have recently learned from the Contra Costa Building Department that a dedicated natural gas line is required to proceed with the project.  Additional research is needed to see if it is economically feasible to install a dedicated gas line or if other options should be considered. 

For background information on this project, please see the April issue of the Appian Wayfarer for details.


Walk for Crohn's & Colitis - May 14th

Michael Fleming (son of Darlene Fleming), has been living with Crohn's Disease for over 20 years.  His family walks to help raise funds for research and educational programs for the 1.4 million children and adults suffering from Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.  If you would like to give to this fight, please make checks payable to "CCFA" and mail them directly to Darlene Fleming (address available in the ESUMC Directory).
