Water damage has been caused by leakage....

 

FLAT ROOFS AND GUTTERS.. Water damage has been caused by leakage of the 87-year-old church gutters and portions of the flat roofs of our church and school. As this repair job (over $13,000) is beyond the church’s budget, our Trustees are asking for special donations. Please indicate Gutter and Roof Repairs and include your member envelope number on your donation. More information about these repairs can be found in the May issue of the EAGLE (please click and scroll down to read the full article).

Thank you for your love and concern for our Church and School.
