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.

One of the main themes of our series on King Saul is ‘the value of the unity of God’s people; and the harm of disunity or nonparticipation’. The implication of these truths for the church are life defining in each generation.

The Bible is full of these principles in story after story. Whether we embrace these principles or not, they affect our families, our workplaces and our country. Those who sow discord are the object of God’s specific distaste. Proverbs 6:16, 19b These six things does the LORD hate: yes, seven are an abomination unto him: …and he that sows discord among brethren.

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.
