Sunday, March 13, 2016 during our 10:00AM Worship Service, we had a dedication of the Sanctuary Remodeling Project.

From December 27, 2015 through March 5, 2016 many members and friends of the church labored to beautify the Sanctuary. Some are pictured.

Following the Worship Service and Dedication, a lunch was served.

The Olympics set a tone that is inspiring and valuable not only to athletes, and citizens, but churches as well.

They remind us that excellence and achievement that inspires a culture are possible.

I always think of life as "Opportunity Ahead". I would like to lay out some of what lies ahead.

 Steve's Mission Trip

Steve is Back

Steve is back from Mexico.

Even better, he seems to be in great health and greater spirits as a result of the trip.

Steve gave a presentation about the Mexico Mission Trip, the work he did, people he met and project he worked on.

The presentation was July 10, but please continue to give Steve some well deserved credit for his work there.

Church Windows Repair Appeal

Dedicated in 1898 this beautiful Church is in The National Register of Historic Places. The stained glass around the outer hallways, fellowship, and fireplace rooms is original with the building. The larger windows in the Sanctuary were replaced in the 1940's. In ways small and large these windows need repair, maintenance, and protection.

There are 60 windows total. To raise these funds among our congregation is currently impossible, so we are asking for help. The dollar figure we have listed is the estimate of a reputable company we have carefully evaluated. The goal is high. All money we receive will go toward repairs.

We have been asked if this can happen in smaller pieces, and the answer is yes, but doing it in stages would increase the costs as you would expect.

Please feel welcome to call if you have questions.
