Donate to Building for Mission

A fire in the roof rapidly spread through the attic in September 2018. Smoke and water damage affected every part of the building, furnishings and personal property. The cost of rebuilding, replacing and modernizing the structure and effects is over $3 million.  While insurance covers some costs, more than $1 million is the responsibility of the congregation. We continue to seek funds for the modernization. Would you like to donate towards the effort? This link will take you to the donation page.
