Needful Things: 

Our 1880's building requires more maintenance than newer buildings, and even our newer (1950's) addition needs constant attention. Beyond our normal building expenses, our wish list includes: 
  • Replace the entrance doors at 7th & Vermillion. 
  • Repair/Replace parking lot.
  • Update Electric Panels in Church
  • Tuckpointing and brick repair on exterior of building
