The Renovation Project
Our 1959 Lake Berkeley Chapel building will be celebrating its 60th anniversary in 2019. While significant improvements have been made over the years, it is our hope to take the next step at this important milestone. Vision 60 is a concept plan to do just that — to refurbish and update, including the addition of an exciting vaulted ceiling.
The renovation of this iconic piece of Berkeley Lake history will add value to our local faith community for years to come. Elevating the facility to a higher standard will enhance our monthly worship experience and increase its attractiveness for the rental income which sustains it.
The renovation costs will include updating both interior and exterior spaces. The initial goal is $50,000 and will be amended as necessary to accommodate finalized plans.
The Brick Fundraiser
4×8-inch engraved red clay bricks will replace the current crushed asphalt paths in the lakeside gazebo garden. We are dubbing these celebration paths with the personal messages reflecting your family’s joy. The engravings can honor lake life, family, friends, pet, a veteran, children, grandchildren, love, marriage, peace, happiness, fishing, sports, living in our great country, health, memorials, gratitude, organization memberships… whatever!
As batches of (100+) bricks are engraved, they will be installed beginning at the gazebo steps and continuing to cover the entire path. The brick price is $100, or three for $250. Each brick will be engraved in black capital letters with a two or three-line message (up to 17 characters per line).
Your Support is Appreciated
In addition to the brick fundraiser, we are also seeking tax-deductible donations from individuals. We are very blessed by generous initial commitments, including several thousand dollars and pro bono contractor work. Lake Berkeley Chapel, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit religious charity.
