On June 12, 2019, our new steeple was raised! After successfully raising over $500,000 from church members and the community, this major capital campaign effort is now complete, including the restoration of our historic 1831 Holbrook bell.
The vision for the new steeple began in 2011 when the old steeple was removed for safety reasons. In 2014, the “Looking Up, Reaching Higher” capital campaign effort was organized. As funds were raised, many needed repairs and renovations within the church were completed, including the construction of a new tower to house the bell and steeple. During our final push in 2019 and with great support from our congregation and our community neighbors, the steeple became a reality.
A town-wide celebration was held on September 14, 2019 and the bell is now ringing daily. We are so very grateful to all who helped make this major project possible!
