From Bret Jacobs – Council President at Galilean Lutheran Church:
Dear Galilean Brothers and Sisters,
I have some wonderful news to share with you about our recovery from Hurricane Isaac.
Much has happened since we first began the repair process on our building just one week ago. Our building has been completely gutted, cleaned and dried. This is the first step in our rebuilding process.
Our roof has been repaired, power has been restored and our airconditiong systems have been checked and are again operational.
Tomorrow morning, our Pews will be on their way to Alabama for refurbishing.
What this all means it that we WILL WORSHIP in our sanctuary on Sunday morning at 10:30 AM!
To be ready for worship, we will need to set up the sanctuary tomorrow afternoon at 2:00PM. We can use some help moving our fellowship hall chairs from the upstairs storage room, so, please come and lend a hand if you can.
Again, these are the first steps. We are currently receiving proposals from several contractors for the repair of the interior of the building. The church organ will be inspected this coming Tuesday to see if it can be repaired. This process will take some time, but, we are well on our way. We have truly been blessed to have made so much progress in one week.
Please continue to pray for our community and all those that were impacted by the storm.
I am looking forward to seeing you all in worship on Sunday.
Yours in Christ,
