Leadership Update – Roof Project

As we enter the Fall season, Asbury’s leadership would like to update everyone on the roof repair project and on the progress of the capital campaign.

The roof project was kicked off during the summer.   Project bid documents were approved and released to bidders during August.  Bids were requested from at least 8 roofing contractors but only two (2)  were received.  Disappointingly neither were approved due to cost and schedule issues.  Asbury is still focused on completion of the project as soon as possible.     Many bidders, through direct communication with the church and our project consultant, would like to bid on the roof project but were unable to do so due to a backlog of other projects taking place in our community.  In light of these market conditions, the roof team will rebid the project in January, 2020, with the goal of starting construction once the weather breaks in the Spring.  Our consultants agree with this approach.  The expectation is that rebidding in the winter could yield a timely schedule and cost benefits.  The roofing project team thanks the Asbury community for their gifts to the project to date.  The goal remains to complete a quality project safely, quickly, and affordably.  

The Capital Campaign continues to grow steadily.  We were excited to announce the receipt of a $50,000 Challenge Gift.  To date, eight(8) families have risen to the challenge and have contributed an additional $32,250.  Please prayerfully consider your participation in this challenge.

As always, we welcome your feedback.  Please direct any questions, comments or concerns to: Church Council (churchcouncil@asburylv.org), Board of Trustees (trustees@asburylv,org), and/or the Finance Committee (finance@asburylv.org)
