At the annual meeting a vote of approval was made to put solar panels on the church. This action will not only
save the church about $14,000 annually in electricity costs, but also show how we are taking action to walk the
walk as a “green” church and be part of the transition to a sustainable planet.
So we begin this journey through our own personal contributions. The total cost will be about $113,000 but if
we receive the state grant the net cost will be about $78,000. We hope everyone will consider being a part of
this project by making a donation.
A capital campaign committee is now being formed, lead by Jim Blackerby, to facilitate the efforts to raise the
money. We have a few key members, the Swains and Hermes. But we would like several individuals to be
involved in organizing and making contacts. We would like your help! So please contact Jim at or 401-533-7382 to discuss what efforts are needed. Let’s let the sun shine in!
