The first church I served was a small church, once in a rural setting now yielding to housing subdivisions. About 10 years before I arrived the church had decided to build a new building across the street from the historic wooden original building. It was a single floor church with cinderblock walls with an exterior facing. On top was a 20 foot fiberglass steeple on a box frame.
In my second year there, the steeple developed a crack after a high wind storm. Four men of the church got up on the roof and took it down. One of the men took it to his garage, and was able to patch the fiberglass crack. In 2 weeks, the same 4 men put up the repaired cross.
Westminster Presbyterian Church is starting the second phase of a capital campaign designed to raise a half-million dollars. About half that amount has been raised, and the church is now going public to raise the rest.
If you’re not a churchgoer (and fewer people are these days), you could easily assume that Sunday is the most active day of the week at Westminster. You would be wrong.
