MORTGAGE UPDATE

Wasatch underwent a major remodel and expansion in 2004, resulting in the wonderful facility that we have today.  To do so, the church took out a $3.3m mortgage in 2004 and thanks to an aggressive payment plan and generous donations, the amount needed to retire the mortgage is approximately $32,000.  The Budget & Finance Committee is hoping to wrap up 2018 by celebrating the end of the mortgage.  If you are able to contribute to this special effort in any way, donations are welcome.  Any questions, please contact Michael Holloway at michaelh@komatsueq.com.

BUILDING GURU NEEDED

The bad news - we urgently need to replace our wonderful Bill White as Buildings & Grounds Chair.  Bill has moved from his nearby residence, and can no longer attend to the duties of Chair.  The good news – the building is in great condition and we have a talented custodial staff and committee in place.  Please contact Rev. Dalgarno if you have any interest.
