Church Roof Project


Our church roof has been badly in need of repair for several years.  The church board voted to replace the roof with a metal roof.  Insurance has covered part of the replacement cost, but we need to raise funds to put a sound barrier underneath, which insurance does not cover.  We need to raise $10,000.  If you would like to contribute to cover this cost, please mark your donation “Roof Project.”  There is a Roofing Fund category on the Online Giving for you to send in your donation marked “Roofing Fund.”  We have $1,639 to finish the goal.

Thank you for your generous giving to this project.
