History

Moments in time...
Above photo taken before our church building opened in 1917
Note the pews and furniture has not yet been installed
and if you look close you can see the rose window through the pipes...
This photo is from our assembly room looking front. Note the choir loft has been expanded, and the wall behind it has been remodeled hiding the organ pipes and the rose window. The light fixtures under the balconies have changed as well to the ones we have today.
This photo is a group choir from the late 50s or early 60s standing in the front of the church. Note the doors and 'windows' behind the choir have been painted white, and the cross has been added to the lower level. This now stands at the back of the stage in Fellowship Hall.
This photo was taken from a stewardship letter showing the church in the early 1970s. Note the changes to the choir loft, now including the 'green' pews that are now in the downstairs choir room, and the green carpet behind the cross (as it is now in Fellowship Hall).
This photo is looking from the assembly room looking forward during the 2005 construction. Note the projector screens are only studs. and the front corner of the new 'sound booth' is visible.
Recent photo of our church during a 'generations singing' event. This is how our church looks today.
