HELP! We are currently looking for old photographs of the Church, Church Members, or Church Activities.

We are constructing a historical reference section of the website and any old photos, stories, etc would be greatly appreciated. Have no fear, we will not keep your photo, we can easily ‘scan’ it into the computer, and return it to you!

Please email us at if you can help
