In 2004, I left the church for the summer because of their desire to gut the historic antique church pews.
Because of my emotional overload about that issue, I had decided to switch rather than to fight.
Not my style, but I was against the minister and the choir on this issue. I was not a happy camper.
In 2005, I returned to the church because of the richness of the community and their decision not to gut the pews.
Now, in 2006, they have voted to restore the steeple. So be it. My question: Does this act amend the mission statement or is it in conformity with the mission statement? I have asked this question because of the high cost of the steeple renovation. However, I remain silenced by the vote. This is not an emotional issue for myself. I, too, would appreciate restoration of the steeple. Please go to their web page to see for yourself.
