Photographs by Concord Monitor Photographer

December, 2017

A Concord Monitor article was written by Caitlin Andrews informing the Concord community about our Restoration Project and explaining why the front doors of the church would be closed from January until April with services held in the Sunday School.  We are happy to still be able to chime before the Sunday Services and Wednesday Evening Meetings.

The article appeared as the lead at the top of the front page.  The Concord Monitor photographer, Elizabeth Frantz, came with Caitlin Andrews and took these photographs. They were so outstanding we are pleased to include them here with permission given by Elizabeth.
