At the congregational meeting on May 19, 2019 at 10:00 a.m., the congregation unanimously approved the roof replacement project as presented. This includes contracting with Champion Services to perform a total roof replacement, the entering of a CD-secured loan with BankOZK (our current mortgage holder) of an amount up to $84,000, and the launch of a capital campaign.
