OUR NEWS!

Our Church Hall, which has served us well for many years, is scheduled for demolition in early in May. We have been having various “Sales” to raise funds and to clear out the huge accumulation of pots, pans, plates and cups. Our dedicated volunteers worked very hard to offer these goods to the public!

It is expected to take approximately six months to complete the new hall. Therefore many group meetings will be postponed until the new hall is completed. Various support groups will meet in the church if they wish to continue to meet.

Please check back with this website for further details.
