Update on the Historic Church

Due to structural problems that have created water and mold damage to the historic church, the historic church is closed at this time. 

As of December 2nd, below is the latest on the historic church's situation.

  • The vestry met on November 30 and we all acknowledge the urgency and importance of resolving all the issues at the historic church. 
  • We need at least two more weeks to gather more information and we will send a letter out as soon as we have a better sense of what is required. 
  • Christmas services will not be held in the historic church this year. We will have a joyful celebration of Jesus birth in the chapel for all services.
