People often say while standing in our building, “you must get flooded a lot.” We do- ’55, ’86, ’96, ’11…. and that’s just in living memory. And will likely be flooded again.
August 28, 2011 was exceptionally destructive. The water crested 8′ above the previous high water mark. It pushed us into rebuilding the interior of the sanctuary. We replaced much of the original structure and fortified the rest. We also needed to recover the Fellowship Hall, which was built to be out of the water. Oh well. We are done now though and did our best to plan for the future. (updated 8/2018, pjk)
