The Church Council approved our Green Team work and request for gifts to fund the installation of solar panels on the south facing roof of our education building. The shingles on this roof were installed in 1992 and should be replaced in order to install the solar panels. Structural analysis by the engineering firm BCE has determined that our roof is strong enough to support the weight of the solar panels. This analysis was made possible by the generosity of contributors who funded the $1,800 cost.
Our next step is to have a special fundraising effort to raise money over and above the general budget to replace the shingles and to install the solar panels. We are requesting bids for the shingle replacement and have bids from solar panel installation contractors ranging from $50,000 to $76,000, depending on the size of the project and the number of panels to be installed.
Between now and November 1, 2017, we need to secure a minimum of 10% of the solar panel installation cost to qualify for a NorthWestern Energy grant. We are asking the congregation and other interested individuals for these funds. For more information, please contact Kim Kaufman, Amanda
Nelson or Ron Mueller.
To donate to the project, you may write a check to St. Paul Lutheran Church and note “Solar Project” on the memo line. You may also choose to donate on our website here.
Thank you for considering stewardship of energy and resources!
Confluence is a faith community growing out of Christian tradition and wisdom and open to diverse perspectives. Through spiritual practice, intentional conversation, social action, and having fun, we seek to learn from one another as we revision a deeper connection to our own faith that prepares us to be instruments of healing, peace, and justice in the world. Confluence is meant to be a creative, engaged community that leaves space for doubts, difficult questions, and dialogue on topics such as politics, climate change, ecology, sexuality, racism, feminism and more. We will be working together through listening and shared leadership to offer anyone who is seeking to reclaim their spirituality a space in which to do so. Confluence is welcoming and affirming to people of all perspectives, histories and identities.
We are on break for summer but typically have met every second and fourth Sunday of the month from 6 to about 8 pm in the Fireside room located on the west end of the UCC building (405 University Ave). Drinks and dinner are between 6 and 6:45pm and our spiritual practice from about 6:45-7:45.
