Some encouraging news regarding donations to the music program of the new church: we have our first donation toward the cost of a new organ, a $10 K. Nine more are needed in order for us to afford a new digital organ. Meantime, we are assessing the repair costs for the used organ we have had in the gym for the past months and will install this one in the church if we have no alternative. The sound system to which it will be attached will be new.
Donations of hymnals are starting. Now that we've finalized the template for the bookplates, we'll be printing them and ordering the hymnals. Look for a display of materials (and hopefully some donor evnvelopes from the hymnal company) by the weekend.
