In the spring of 2011 a major flood hit our area and our historic church, which was built in 1910. During mitigation we found severe old damage from previous floods in 1930 and 1978, as well as other problems related to the age of our facility. Critical structural components such as floor joists, bottom plates, and the foundation had severely deteriorated beyond reasonable repair. There are also the problems often found in buildings over 100 years old, which make it more cost effective to rebuild instead of repairing a failing facility.
Our old building has been demolished . Our new building is nearly complete and we began meeting there in November, 2018.
