The Executive Committee is discussing the purchase of an AED (automatic external defibrillator) to have available at the church in case of a medical emergency. AEDs are user friendly and allow for an immediate response to a medical condition until first responders arrive. Total cost for the unit and accessories is approximately $2,300. If you are interested in contributing towards this purchase, please let Pastor David, Brian Johnson, or an executive committee member know.
