The Facilities Team mission is to ensure proper maintenance of our buildings and grounds.  They make recommendations to the Board for major repairs and capital expenditures.  They may form sub teams of volunteers to assist with maintenance e.g. "adopt-a-garden-bed"; lawn mowing; HVAC maintenance, etc. as well as task teams for specific projects like re-roofing the pole barn.


  • Keep all areas of the building up to standards to meet Delhi code
  • Maintain and repair building, equipment and grounds
  • Make improvements where needed

General Strategies:

Sub and Task Teams developed as needed:  Gardens, Lawn, Snow Removal

Address areas of the campus by priority.

December 2022, we received out occupancy permit for the upper level of the Lodge.

2023 Focus is renovation of lower lodge bathrooms and activity room.

We continue to evaluate the priorities of areas still in need of upgrading - the bathroom off the activity room, the activity room, re-roofing Great Hall, Pole Barn, Pump House, etc.

Outdoor areas include further development of the memorial forests, the labyrinth and various garden beds.

This team develops the budget, hires contractors where needed, involves congregational help where feasible, and coordinates with the Design Team
