  5. The Lord is faithful and we have several additions and hire to our renovation team that is working full time.
Our Needs
  1. There is still much work that can be done by everyone. Members who are experienced in construction and can volunteer their time to help us offset our cost for outside contractors.
  2. Members who are willing to help with simple things like cleaning and other non-skilled work
