APOSTLES MOSAIC REMOVED- A portion of the large mosaic hanging in the church lobby was crumbling and fell off last week. On Tuesday, Jan. 24, Bob & Annie Kroll, Don & Nadine Friedrichs, and Byron & Karen Weiss tried to take down the mosaic in one piece in hopes of repairing the artwork. Unfortunately it fall apart further. The shields representing the Apostles were saved. Ideally someone can re-purpose them somehow in the church or in the new addition. Please let members of the building committee know if you have any ideas.  This beautiful artwork has been a part of our church since 1971.

If anyone has any photos of the mosaic, please let Webmaster Ted Mallory know, so that he can scan it and post it here on the church website- Thank You!

PLANS FOR THE NEW ADDITION- Plans are hanging in the lobby. Please take a look. If you have any questions or concerns, please share them with the Building Committee: Bill Magill, Bob & Annie Kroll, Don & Nadine Friedrichs, Byron & Karen Weiss, Kevin & Shelli Pester, and Kevin Clausen.
