SOS - Support Our Sustainability! Save Our Structure!

Windows!
80 drafty old windows in the Education Building have been replaced.
New windows will mean less energy use, lower bills, and more comfortable rooms.
A gift of $400 funds a new window.

Paint!
The exterior of all three buildings must be painted.
It’s not just cosmetic anymore!
The concrete surface is no longer protected against the elements.
To save our structure, we have begun to paint the exterior.

Help!
To be judicious with the earth’s resources (and ours) and to care for our facility, it’s time for action.
Our Trustees have done a great job of finding the most cost-effective, reliable solutions.
And yet, the total cost is $87,000.

How…
Complete a SOS Pledge Form (found in the Kern UMC Forms list at the left) and
Put it in the offering plate any Sunday or turn it in to the office any time this month, or, use the online form at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/DBVNK3B to let us know how you can help.
