Butcher Boy video

Our 149 year old congregation is on the northern side of main street. Bounded by the downtown businesses on the south, the Farmstead Museum on the west, the court house and jail on the east, our only growth potential was to the north. Earlier this year Oscar, the owner of the Butcher Boy grocery store across the street from the church, told us he planned to retire. He wondered if we had an interest in buying the property.

We'd been hoping for the opportunity for years. All of our parking is shared with other groups. Oscar had generously allowed us to use his lot, but there was no guarantee someone else movign in would have been so generous. We're also growing in numbers as God brings more people in. Our (old) fellowship hall is too small, and sometimes our educational space is cramped. Space sounded like a good thing to our leaders, so we have taken the plunge.

As a way to communicate with our people and other interested parties, I made a short video this week. You can watch it and get just a glimpse of what it looks like. Pray for us also - we need it.
