Many people have asked, "How can we help financially?". As many of you know, our church sustained significant damage from the tornado that struck on September 21st. In particular, the roof and flooring of the fellowship hall (what was the old church building), and the heating and air conditioning units on the roof need to be replaced or repaired along with some shattered windows. You can view some images of the damage here.
While we have insurance coverage, it will only cover the minimum required (for example, laying down new carpet instead of first better insulating the flooring that was built in the 1970's). The damaged area of the church is one that is used for a great deal of ministry into our community-- from our Parents of Preschoolers play group, our JOY seniors drop-in, our CATALYST youth program (for teens grades 6-12), and for big community events like our Royal Ball and Bike Rodeo, so we want to ensure that the repairs will be sufficient for us to better serve our community in the years ahead.
If we discover that the financial help we receive is greater than our need, please rest assured that every dollar of it will be carefully accounted for and will be used to directly benefit the Trend-Arlington community.
