In preparation for the roof replacement, several trees were removed surrounding the church. Once the roof work is completed, there are plans to plant flowering bushes such as azaleas and hydrangeas this coming fall in place of the trees that were removed.  Please bear with us as we embark on this much needed roof replacement.

En preparación para el reemplazo del techo, varios árboles que rodeaban la iglesia fueron removidos. Una vez que se complete el trabajo del techo, hay planes de sembrar arbustos que florecen como las azaleas y hortensias este próximo otoño en lugar de los árboles que fueron eliminados. Por favor tengan paciencia con nosotros mientras embarcamos en esta reparación de techo muy necesaria.
