1/27/15 - After first contacting people/families/heirs who gave pews to the church to see if they want to reclaim them, the Board decided to offer the rest of the pews in the old Sanctuary for $1,000 each. This certainly does not preclude a larger donation, and all funds will go into the new Building Fund. If you are interested in purchasing a pew, please call John Hicks or the Church Secretary to be put on the list.
