Space Chronicles Vol. 3

We’ve picked an architect!!

The space team is delighted to introduce you to this dynamic architectural team.  Come to the congregational meeting on September 30th at 1:00 pm for the grand announcement.  The architect will give a presentation to help you get to know the firm and there will be an opportunity for questions.  Keep in mind that no design decisions have been made. This is the beginning of a partnership to work towards creating a wonderful space from which to fulfill our mission.

Looking Back to August

You may recall that a Request for Proposal (RFP) was issued in July.  Four proposals were submitted in response. The space committee evaluated each of these against the criteria specified in the RFP.  On August 21st, the top two architectural firms came to Foothills for face to face interviews with the space committee.  Each firm was asked to prepare a 20 minute presentation illustrating their ideas for our new building, followed by questions from the committee. Both firms were interesting and both are capable of completing our project, but one stood out as the best selection.  This firm was recommended to and approved by the board on September 8.

Looking Ahead to September

The big event in September will be the congregational meeting.  Please come to meet the architect and to learn about the major steps that need to be taken in order to end up with a building!

The Space Committee is now the Space Team!

The committee is now a ministerial team.  The team is also reorganizing. Sara Steen, Sarah Parrish and Glen Pearson have left the committee.  We are grateful for their contributions to our progress so far and are sorry to see them go. As new members are recruited, the meeting time may change, but for the time being the Space Team meets on Tuesdays from 12:30-2:30 in the RE building – typically room 22.

Do you love to create bulletin board displays?

The communications team finds that they are not very skilled in this area.  If you’d like to update the bulletin board in the social hall once a month, they’d love to have your help.  Email Margaret at if you’re interested.
