Digital Sign Update
Over the past 6 months a group of folks in our church family led by Mike Jeuick have been working to bring a proposal and funding to acquire a digital sign for Gayton Baptist Church. The idea and original design were presented at our Regular Business Meeting in December. An updated design with additional information was given at the Town Hall on April 12. Additional research was done by several members of our church staff to examine how we could integrate using this sign as a part of our communications. The purchase and installation of this sign has been gifted and will not come out of the church budget.
In the past couple of weeks, the Servant Leadership Council received an update that provided several key pieces - 1) The sign and installation are fully funded, 2) Henrico County has approved the design and use, 3) Atlantic Union Bank has been notified of this expenditure and approved it, and 4) Our support staff has seen the software in use and given it a positive review.
In light of these and other considerations, this project has been approved to move forward. Below you will find an artist's rendering of the sign design. Please note that with the installation of this new sign, all other signage is to be moved to a new location (The ASQ sign) or removed entirely. This will avoid redundancy and create a cleaner look for the church front.
If you have any questions, please reach out to Mike Jeuick (email@example.com) or Scott Johnson (firstname.lastname@example.org). An artist's rendering of the sign can be viewed here.
