CAPITAL CAMPAIGN FUND

Thank you so much to everyone who has given.  Our Capital Campaign Fund, or 100th Anniversary Fund as it is also known, is continuing because we have undertaken to complete the repair of our church organ. We have already had some work done on the organ console, but still need repairs to the Great Chamber: $23,435; the Choir Chamber: $19,592 and the Swell Chamber: $33,320 for a total of $76,347.  Please continue your support as you contribute to this Fund. Thank you for your amazing generosity thus far.  To date, we have raised $166,690 on our way to $300,000.
