Last fall it was determined our church needed a new lower roof, new upper roof, a new furnace and air conditioning unit for the Parish Center and tuck pointing for the steeple. Estimated costs are approximately $95,000.
The lower roof and furnace and AC repairs have been completed with the rest of the work beginning in the spring.
We need your help to help finance this work.

Christ Himself is waiting for you.
He will heal you; and you will be at peace with God.”
