Help Repair our Organ
Fundraising Goal: $8000
Raised in one week: $4085!
Fundraising Deadline: June 1
We need your help to continue the outstanding music program of our church. Our varied and high-quality music is central to the worship services of our church. The adult, bells and children’s choir, in addition to our singing and instrumentalists helps to guide us to worship of God and deepen our spiritual growth. We have been blessed at The Congregational Church of Huntington with many talented and generous musicians who make our music so important to us.
One of the most important parts of music in church is the organ that accompanies much of our singing and anthems. We are blessed with a quality 3-manual digital organ that is a very good instrument for our sanctuary. Unfortunately, the organ is about 20 years old and is need of some significant repairs. The good news is we have not had to do anything to it since it was bought. Now, though, some of the keys do not even work and David must be very creative to make the music we hear. The work that it requires will cost almost $8000.00. This includes:
· Replace all three keyboards
· Refurbish the speakers
· Upgrade the electrical systems
This works must be done, but we have not planned for this in our church budget. We can meet some of this expense from our memorial funds, but we would rather use those funds for new items that enhance our worship and building. So we are turning to our members and friends with a special fundraising request to help pay for the organ expenses.
Would you join us in making a contribution to pay for the needed repairs? We are planning a short time frame for this campaign, so please return all contributions by June 1. You may bring a donation to worship or mail it to the church, PO Box 134, Centerport NY 11721.
Thank you for helping us preserve the future of our uplifting music program.
