STAINED GLASS windows were installed last Tuesday.  The curing process was speeded up, and what was going to be due in April was ready to go earlier this week.  You'll see this magnificent piece of work when you come to worship this morning.  The work was done by local artist Bonnie Nygard. There are still the two side chancel windows and six nave windows to design and create.

NEW FLOORING was installed in the fellowship hall and old fellowship hall last week.
