Building Renovation Plans

During the St. John’s annual meeting on Sunday, January 27, 2019, council member Mark Paulson spoke about the potential of making renovations to the St. John’s building. Mark explained that the council had been asked by Pastor Jeff, over a year ago, to look at the church building with fresh eyes and to come back with ideas for what could be done to make the space more welcoming. The congregation had also been asked to vision and make their own suggestions. The council created a think tank, led by Mark, which took those suggestions to architect and member, Mike Wilkus. Mike volunteered his time and talents to put together plans and generate sample renderings of what the updated, more welcoming spaces could look like. These are for imagining, dreaming and discussing and are certainly not final.

The council brought the plans to two contractors to obtain rough estimates on the cost to the make the changes. Both bids came in around $800,000. This includes making needed repairs to the roof and air conditioning units. At the annual meeting, Mark Paulson shared the council’s hope that funds could be raised so work could begin in the spring of 2020 and completed by the fall of 2020.

At the annual meeting, congregation members expressed excitement about the changes as well as the desire to move forward quickly – even before 2020 if possible. An essentially symbolic vote was held to demonstrate support for renovations and to instruct the council to move ahead as quickly as possible. The vote passed unanimously.

Mark Paulson concluded by asking that people with ideas or who wanted more information to talk with members of the council or Pastor Jeff.

Opportunities for feedback will also be available during future presentations about renovation plans between worship services.
