  3. Message from Board Chair, Elliott Croll:

    We have started to use the new locks for security in the building. There are instructions posted on the main doors and in the Lobby on how to use the new key codes. Note that the first number is made up of two keys pressed at the same time. Please take the time to learn how to unlock the doors. Elliott or Andrew will be able to demonstrate how to open the locks for the doors. We request some volunteers to help man the doors for about 5-10 Minutes at a time.

    There is a different code to get access from the back door into the Main Sanctuary. See Elliott or Andrew for the code. This door can only be opened when services occur or the alarm will be activated!! The lower level will also be locked. Parents who want their children downstairs will have to open the lower level door.
