  • Window restoration

    Our endeavors to restore the stained glass window array of our church home are underway - Praise God!  We are thankful for Jeff Hart, a local Hillsdale artist for taking on this task, and look forward to it's unveiling.  Please come and join us for worship and see the blessings of God the Father Almighty at work!

    The cost of the front window alone is roughly $23,000; a cost we are fortunate to cover from an undesiganted portion of our memorial savings.  Each subsequent window will cost approximtely $2,600  Fundraisers will be taking place and we hope to see you there - even if your smile and support is all you can offer - we are grateful for your thoughts, prayers, efforts, and dedication.

    Pictures will be posted as completion nears so please check back as often as you can for the exciting conclusion of our Stained Glass Window Restoration!

    If you feel called to assist in any way - Please reach our to Pastor Larry - allen.umc@aol.com
