UPDATE WITH REGARDS TO THE STEEPLE


         For the last seven years, we have considered returning the steeple back to its original place. However, due to the severe financial burden, it has decided by the church’s building committee to replace the structure with a more attainable replacement.


         After spending about $13,000 in architect and engineer’s assessments, it was determined that in order to put the steeple back to its original place, an intense restructure of the building’s foundations will have to be redone so that it could handle the weight of the steeple.

                      Letters we sent to most of the local business
                      Flyers we sent through the mail.
                      Door to door knocking was done to hand-out flyers.

         Only about $120.00 was collected from the town.

 

Due to this results and the need to remove the steeple from its present location, it has been determined to find a source to remove the steeple and replace it with either a smaller fiberglass steeple or a different roof top finish.

 

                              Steps for final determination to proceed:

 

  •            The architect is working on some drawing options
  •            The building committee will make a suggestion based on the findings and                         make a recommendation.
  •            The church’s directors will then revise and approve or disapprove the                                  recommendations.
  •            If approved, this recommendation will be presented to church members                            and  they will make the final approval; otherwise, is back to the drawing                    board.

Historia de nuestro peregrinaje:

 

La iglesia, organizada un sábado de febrero del año 1991 con una matrícula de 85 miembros, celebraba sus reuniones de adoración y estudio de la Palabra de Dios en el templo Congregacional ubicado en la calle Oak, frente al Parque Central. Allí permaneció unos cuantos años con ciertas limitaciones en cuanto a las actividades a desarrollar; por ejemplo, las reuniones de la Junta Directiva de la iglesia se llevaban a cabo en Leominster, la iglesia madre. Esa situación urgió al comité de edificio de la iglesia, encabezada por el Pastor Francisco Ramos, a iniciar una intensa búsqueda de un lugar que sirviera de asentamiento a la congregación de manera definitiva y que fuera su propiedad...
