Announcements 7/13/16

You may see some plywood…

and other signs of progress in the next weeks at the Chapel.  The Trustees are beginning the first steps to replace the door in the middle right wall of the sanctuary as it is unusable and rotting.  The Trustees are delighted to announce that we will be replacing the door with a custom stain glass window to complement the other windows.  There will be some occasions you will find temporary openings sealed with plywood as they replace and repair the wall/door area.

We look forward to the Sunday that we dedicate our final stain glass piece, and ask you to be patient with our progress.
